Anurag Kashyap Tired Of Mentoring ‘Creative Geniuses’ For Free, Will Now Charge Lakhs

Filmmaker Anurag Kashyap is tired. Once known to uplift, support and promote newcomers, today he is tired of giving his valuable time to wannabe “creative geniuses” who come up with nothing but mediocre work. Therefore, he has decided on something. Henceforth, he will be charging people who want to have a meeting with him.

His rates:

A meeting for 10-15 minutes – Rs 1 lakh.
A meeting for 30 minutes – Rs 2 lakh.
A meeting for an hour – Rs 5 lakh.

He is also looking for advance payment. No text. No DM. Just pay.

We’re not even kidding. Anurag Kashyap took to Instagram to make this announcement.

“I wasted a lot of time trying to help newcomers and mostly ended up with mediocre s**t. So now onwards I don’t want to waste my time with meeting random people who think they’re creative geniuses. So I will now have rates,” he wrote.

He went on to add, “If someone wants to meet me for 10-15 minutes I will charge 1 lac, for half hour 2 lacs and for 1 hour 5 lacs. That’s the rate. I am tired of wasting time meeting people. If you really think you can afford it, call me or stay the f**k away. And all paid in advance. And I mean it. Don’t text or dm or call me. Pay, and you will get time. I am not a charity, and I am tired of people looking for shortcuts.”
