“Anubhav Sinha immorally and unethically used my name,”  Vivek Agnihotri

“Anubhav Sinha  immorally and unethically used my name,”   Vivek Agnihotri On A Project That  He Is  No Longer Associated With.

A while ago it was  revealed to  this writer  that Vivek Agnihotri’s next  film is not the much awaited  The Delhi Files but a  film called Nautanki which he  shot in Bhopal during the lockdown with his  friends Anupam Kher  and  Satish Kaushik.

However Vivek  clarifies that he is no longer associated  with Nautanki.

Says Vivek, “During the first lockdown, in August  2020 my dear friend Anupam Kher asked me to help him out with a play which they wanted to shoot as a small film. I did help with the shooting and with the first cut  as a friendly gesture without charging a penny.”

That  was  the end of his association with  Nautanki.

Says Vivek,  “After the shoot was over, it was taken over by the producers and and I have no idea  about what they did with the final film and I am in no way associated with it anymore unless Anupam needs my help with the film.”

Vivek reveals this  is not  the  first time he has  helped out a project. “ I do help a lot of people with many things as friendly gesture. To me filmmaking has never been about money. Earlier also I had helped Anubhav Sinha’s Zid, which I had left after first schedule and it was finished by director Anubhav Sinha. Later he sent a cheque to use my name and not to tell anyone that I didn’t direct the film. I refused to take the cheque and he immorally and unethically used my name to market the film. But then I say, it ok, if I can be of any help to anyone  it’s  no big deal.”
