Anurag Kashyap says David Dhawan and Govinda ‘were a remarkable team’

Anurag Kashyap has praised his up to date filmmaker Rohit Shetty in addition to the group of David Dhawan and Govinda.

David Dhawan and Govinda gave a number of hits collectively within the Nineties and 2000s, together with Shola Aur Shabnam, Raja Babu, Coolie No. 1, Saajan Chale Sasural, Hero No. 1 (1997), Bade Miyan Chote Miyan (1998), Kyo Kii… Main Jhuth Nahin Bolta (2001), and Partner.

In an interview with Galatta Plus, Anurag mentioned, “I enjoy watching mainstream a lot; good mainstream. Our mainstream today has become very bad, quality wise. The only person whose own self and honesty you see (in his films) is Rohit Shetty, which is why you enjoy him. The rest of them are just trying to copy what works, they are trying to be something else. Rohit has taken time to come into his own. He realised he is good at action, so he started controlling that, and it shows.”

Anurag added that he credit David Dhawan with establishing this style of cinema. “I will argue with his sensibility, I will argue with his politics, I will argue with other things. But he is as mainstream as Hindi cinema can get. Last was David Dhawan, who was a genre in himself. I call David Dhawan an auteur, because he genuinely created that (kind of cinema). He and Govinda were a remarkable team. But nothing else… Nobody really understands the world they are living in,” he added.

Anurag’s final movie Dobaaraa launched in theatres this June. The Taapsee Pannu-starrer was an enormous field workplace failure, incomes simply 7 crore in its lifetime.
