The 42-year-old 'Black Friday' director, who is known
for making films with real-life issues in the backdrop, said he is
an admirer of Hirani.
"I have seen 'PK' and it's one of the most relevant
film of today. I really think that Raju Hirani is the bravest
filmmaker. He has proved himself twice.
"People say Dibakar (Banerjee), Vishal (Bhardwaj) and I are
brave but I feel Raju is the one. He made a film on Gandhiji in
'Lage Raho Munnabhai' and on religion in 'PK' and
he did it effectively," Kashyap told.
Kashyap liked the way Hirani dealt with the first half of the
Aamir Khan-starrer PK, which released last Friday and is
doing good at the box-office.
"PK's first half is amazing and he said everything what
he tried to say through the montage. Second half is the story,
which you have to tell according to the market and to complete the
storyline. Aamir Khan's flashback is the most effective and best
part in the film.
"Generally, we filmmakers get into our subject to prove its
poignancy so much that we end up making it less effective for
audience. But Raju didn't do that," Kashyap said.
