Absolute freedom can lead to anarchy, says Anurag Kashyap

Published

By

Mumbai, July 14 (IANS) Filmmaker Anurag Kashyap, who essays the role of Kazbe Bhau in the streaming series ‘Bad Cop’, feels that absolute freedom can be easily corrupted and could lead to anarchy if not checked.

Anurag has often been subjected to curbing of his freedom as a storyteller as he has often grappled with censorship on his stories. Yet, the director feels that absolute freedom is something that needs to be handled with care.

The auteur spoke with IANS and discussed how checks and balances in society are required to keep things on track.

“Anything can be corrupted. When socialism started, we felt so good but then it got corrupted and turned into some other kind of democracy. When globalisation started, it felt like the world had suddenly opened but then look where we are now,” the director told IANS.

“The same is the case with cell phones. Initially, when the boom of smartphones happened, we felt that the world is now at our fingertips. But, today we are slaves to our phones. If there’s an absolute freedom, there has to be absolute responsibility to keep a check on it,” the director said.

Left's ideology never ceases to amaze me: Kangana Ranaut on Trump's assassination attempt

Published

By

Mumbai, July 14 (IANS) Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut, who is gearing up for her upcoming film ‘Emergency’, reacted to the assassination attempt on former US President Donald Trump, saying that Left’s ideology never ceases to amaze her.

The actress took to the Stories section of her Instagram and shared two pictures of the Pennsylvania rally where Trump was shot.

In the pictures, Trump could be seen wounded with blood dripping from his ear.

“Trump was shot in his rally, he survived this assassination attempt but leftists are clearly getting desperate… everyone needs to be careful,” the actress wrote.

She then pointed the gun at the followers of the left ideology, saying: “This man almost 80, after taking several bullets gets up punching fist screams ‘Hail America’ will win this election. That’s right-wing, never start a fight but be the one to close it.”

“For America he took a bullet on his chest, if he was not wearing a bullet proof jacket he would have not survived this assassination attack. Left ideology never ceases to amaze me, Left’s main dissent with the right is that right is violent they love to fight for Dharma and left essentially believes in love and peace so the woke left tried to kill Trump so hate and violence cant win. Hmmmm … very smart left very smart,” she added.
