Anurag Kashyap had decided to make a no-holds-barred action film with Kunal Kapoor playing his first action hero. But the project has been put on hold.
Explains Anurag, "That project Doga (based on the comics that are so popular in North India) to be produced by Sony International requires a whole lot of preparation. It needs international - level special effects for which I need to go for internship to the US with my cinematographer Rajeev Ravi for some months. This would probably be the most expensive Indian film ever. And I don't want to slip up. And Kunal needs to do a helluva lot of preparation. I'll go to Doga after Bombay Velvet," informs Anurag.
Anurag, who has a history of censorial run-ins, is surprised at how liberal the censor board has been to his latest film Dev D. "They understood its theme. It's definitely an adult film with minor cuts. My target audience is 18-35. If there was an over 15 censor certificate in India, I'd have definitely applied for it. Censorship in India is not obsolete any more. Sharmila Tagore and Vinayak Azad have brought in a liberal element to the censor board."
