Director Anurag Kashyap on Monday evening got miffed with the photographers who were waiting to click him outside a doctor's clinic.
He said, "Tum log ye doctor ke yaha kyu khade ho photo lene ke liye? Tum logo ko kaam nai hai life mein? Jao jaakar shakal dekho sheeshe mein... log kahi bhi jaa rahe hain, unka photo le rahe hain. Ek baar Bethke socho aur pucho apne aap se. Matlab aadmi kahi jaayega nai, saans nai lete isliye bahar bhaag jaate hain log."
In translation: "Why are you standing at the doctor's? Don't you have any other work or better work in life?" One of the photographers in the video does reply to Anurag Kashyap saying 'ye hi hamara kaam hai' (this is our actual job). Anurag then said, "Yeh kaam hai? Yeh koi kaam hai? Tum log jaake sheeshe mein shakal dekho apni. Aur koi dhang ka kaam nahin hai life mein? Kabhi poochte nahin ho apne aap se kya kaam kar rahe ho. Log Kahin jaa rahe hain unka photo kheech rahe ho. Do something better in life. Don't you question yourself what sort of job you are doing?"
To which, a photographer Varinder Chawla wrote on his Instagram handle saying: "A humble request to @anuragkashyap10 on not guiding us on our jobs.
Aapko koi Haq nahi banta kisi ke profession pe comment karne ka.
Hum apne aap se puch ke hi ye kaam karte hai Aur hum, Aur ye poori #Bollywood industry proud hai hamare kaam se.
Get A Life Anurag Kashyap." [sic]
While the paps are not happy with Kashyap's reaction, Netizens came out in support of the director. One user wrote: "He did not say anything wrong. Seriously eye opener for people aimlessly running around celebs to get a click.," while another said: "This is so absurd. Getting clicked while visiting a doctor and standing outside the clinic for photos. Give these creative people some mental peace.", and other wrote: "He is right on his way.. Doctor ke waha? You should respect where they are going ,party ,sets awards waha photo nikalo na .. doctor ke waha kon follow karta hai" [sic]
