Anil Kapoor and Anurag Kashyap’s film AK VS AK released on Netflix has made a mark in the world of OTT.
The concept of the film is being praised and now Danny Boyle, director of the Oscar winning film like Slumdog Millionaire, has called the film Wonderful.
Danny had a video session with Anil Kapoor, Anurag Kashyap and director Vikramaditya Motwane, in which he shared his thoughts about the film. Anil Kapoor shared the video on Twitter.
In the video, Danny says- I just wanted to convey to you how great a film you guys have made. I was surprised to see this. For me it is a monument to great filmmaking.
My favorite films are Day for Night and perhaps Coppola’s wife Heart of Darkness. But, it is a wonderfully modern film about filmmaking and such films are no more.
AK Versus The story of AK is fictional, but its combination is real. Anil Kapoor has become a film star in the film, while Anurag Kashyap is the film director.
The film has also been shot at Filmistan Studios, Rasta and both houses in Mumbai. Sonam Kapoor, Harshvardhan Kapoor and Boney Kapoor have also given an episode in the film.
AK Verses AK was released on December 24, Anil Kapoor’s birthday and the film also uses his birthday as a twist in the story.
The promotion of the film was also kept very real. On social media, Anil Kapoor and Anurag Kashyap spewed mud at each other for several days, as were their characters in the film.
Let me tell you, Anil Kapoor played an important role in Slumdog Millionaire. The film received several Oscar Awards.
