New Delhi, Jan. 19 -- Filmmaker Anurag Kashyap ventured into acting even before he started his career as a director. While he is one of the busiest filmmakers in the industry today, he has also acted in films at regular intervals.
He was last seen in a cameo in Happy New Year (2014) and will play the role of a police officer in an upcoming film, starring Nawazuddin Siddiqui. But Anurag is not interested in acting in films.
"Since I used to act earlier, people cast me from time to time. But, I absolutely hate acting. I don't want to act. I don't like myself on screen," says Anurag.
But interestingly, he enjoys acting in theatrical plays and would like to associate with one. "Unlike films, I enjoy acting in dramas. Theatre is more challenging and you can evaluate your potential in a better way. I would rather do theatre, if time permits," says Anurag.
