The unnecessary tirade of Anurag Kashyap against CBFC chairman looks more aimed towards publicity for film. These tactics have been tried many times by a large number of directors, actors and producers to gain publicity for a film by creating controversy. Many times it has succeeded but mostly failed. Kashyap has made more harm to the film by making personal attacks and politicizing the issue than the intended publicity.

You must live on some other planet! The CBFC chairman has blocked the movie on non legal grounds, even going to the extent of charging the film makers with conniving with AAP to make the BJP look bad. If anyone is looking for cheap publicity, it is the self-professed bhakt CBFC chairman.
Refusing to clear the movie is aimed at covering up the problem rather than solving it. Many movies are made on social issues and abuses. But to say that such movies project negative image of a State or a country is a ridiculous argument.
