I have deliberately played up violence in GOW: Anurag Kashyap

By Hindustan Times

Filmmaker Anurag Kashyap, whose Gangs of Wasseypur II hits theatres this week, says he did not put any stop when it came to portraying violence in a raw and real manner. The first part had raised some eyebrows for its graphic nature but the director says he believes that real violence is a deterrent and does not inspire.

"I have a strong point about violence. In Gangs of Wasseypur I wanted to take violence forward and play it up.

"Our films don't depict violence in a realistic manner and that inspires people to act like a hero where as real violence makes you uncomfortable, it makes you flinch and you would not want to do something which disturbs you," Kashyap said on the sidelines of the Osian's Cinefan film festival.
