Anurag Kashyap: My daughter hates my films
Filmmaker Anurag Kashyap, who recently watched Anand Gandhi’s Ship Of Theseus at a special screening, watched it again with his 12-year-old daughter Aaliya.
‘I had the privilege to see uncut 3hour version started at midnight & my daughter who hates my films sat through & loved it. Actors don't look like they are acting, as if @recyclewala like a lizard was on the wall/ in the room capturing them,’ the 40-year-old director tweeted.
‘3 stories,3 extraordinary actors. Neeraj kabi, sohum shah and Aida, a lot to learn from them and their surrender to thir roles. Especially Neeraj kabi and Sohum Shah, neeraj's physical transformation during his sickness is a performance/sight to behold. Sohum Shah who is also the producer, and you tend to look at that as suspect but what a gem , natural and real to the core,’ he added.
Other stars also showered praises on the film:
Aditi Rao Hydari: Ship of Theseus touches your soul- DEEP down and stays there @SOTfilm... Thank you Anand gandhi, Kiran rao and Aamir khan for this gem.
Alia Bhatt: Ship Of Theseus is Reflective, beautiful and moves you to the edge and beyond..physically and emotionally!!Go watch it !!!!
Sidharth Malhotra: Ship Of Theseus lives with u long after uv seen it, completely therapeutic experience,must watch guys...
