Oscar-winning filmmaker Danny Boyle has joined the list of AK vs AK fanboys. The director hosted a special QnA session with director Vikramaditya Motwane, Anurag Kashyap and Anil Kapoor for the British Film Institute (BFI).
Kashyap and Kapoor are the lead stars of the movie which also features actors Harshvardhan Kapoor, Sonam Kapoor and Boney Kapoor.
“I just wanted to convey to you what a wonderful film you’ve made. I was astonished by it… For me it joins the pantheons of great films about filmmaking, of which there are a number. My favourite are Day For Night (La Nuit américaine) and probably Coppola’s wife’s film, Heart of Darkness (on the process of filming Apocalypse Now, the only film to deserve a Nobel Prize). But this is an incredibly modern film about filmmaking and there aren’t that many of them,” Boyle said about AK vs AK.
Like the rest of us, Boyle was particularly impressed with Harshvardhan Kapoor who had a few scenes in AK vs AK but truly managed to stand out. Kapoor has earlier given a standout performance in 2018’s Bhavesh Joshi Superhero which is one of the most underrated films to have released in the past few years.
Thank you got 2 films coming out this year 🙂 https://t.co/OFjcLAhz8x
