It is said that a relationship between two people who work together is far more complicated than a relationship between two romantic partners.
Of course, that is always subject to personal experience, but the basic idea is that no one gets on your nerves like the people you work with and we may have just found the perfect example to support our statement.
Bollywood actor Abhay Deol may have opened a can of worms after making rather explosive statements about Anurag Kashyap, whom the actor had worked with on the film Dev D, back in the day.
But before we delve into what Abhay Deol said, time for some context.
In 2020, Anurag Kashyap had spoken about working with Abhay Deol in Dev D and called the experience ‘painfully difficult’. He said that Abhay was looking to do artistic movies but wanted to also cash in on the ‘luxuries of being a Deol’.
In fact, Anurag even said that Abhay Deol demanded to stay in a 5-star hotel when the entire crew for the film was being put up in Paharganj.
Almost 3 years later, Abhay Deol has decided to address the claims made by Anurag Kashyap by holding nothing back.
He said in an interview with Bollywood Hungama, “I had my heart on my sleeve, and all that is great – but you get taken advantage of, and then you get reactive. So, he (Anurag Kashyap) was a good lesson for me.”
He went on to say, “Then I just avoided him, because I don’t need toxic people in my life. Life is too short, and there is so much more to explore. But he (Anurag) is definitely a liar and a toxic person. And I would warn people about him.”
Talking about the 2020 interview, Abhay shared how Anurag had offered him an apology for saying what he did.
He recalled, “He (Anurag) does that all the time. He was like, ‘You want to shout at me, scream at me…’ And I was like, ‘I don’t care. It’s been 12 years. You don’t feature in my thoughts even now; get over it.’ He said, ‘Forgive me because I have had a bad day.’ I said you are forgiven. I never had a personal agenda. It was far bigger than just me. That is how I feel about everything. How much of this is he going to do? And I would have never taken his name and said the things, had he not gone public either.”
The duo worked on the film Dev D back in 2009 and haven’t worked on another project since.
