On this, according to a PTI report, Anurag was quoted as saying: “If I had said this four years ago, it would have made a difference. Now, I don’t think it will make a difference. It’s about controlling one’s own people. “Things they’ve changed and now it’s out of control, I don’t think anyone listens to anyone.” The filmmaker further said: “When you remain silent, you empower prejudice and you empower hate. It has become so strong now that it is a power unto itself. The crowd is now out of control.”

He said during an interview with The Indian Express: “If the PM scolds his own people and asks them to shut up and not talk nonsense against the film industry, which is not in his domain, then it is a sign of confidence for the industry. “There is a big push that the prime minister of the country is with you. This signal goes out not only to the politicians, but also to the media people, to our own industry.
