When Anurag Kashyap spoke about being arrested for arriving drunk in Saudi, revealed how he managed to save himself – Times of India
Anurag, in an episode of Unfiltered with Samdish said, “There were no flights from Denmark due to volcanic ash. I was very exhausted and I had wine and I went, took the ticket and I had to wait five hours. I went to the lounge and started drinking because I wanted to pass out. I sat in the flight and I passed out. I landed in Saudi, they arrested me because I walked on the land of Saudi totally drunk. They started questioning me. Luckily I had my phone and I sent a text to Ronnie Ronnie Screwala.” He also added that he had a bag of pork sausages with him, making him all the more terrified.
After a lot of haggling with security, Anurag was allowed to board his next connecting flight after 3 hours, resulting in a huge sigh of relief for the Dev.D director.
On the workfront, Kashyap’s latest, Almost Pyaar with DJ Mohabbat, released last week. An “ode to modern love,” as Anurag calls it, the movie stars Alaya F and debutant Karan Mehta and has been garnering rave reviews from the audience.
