Here’s the latest reports coming out from the Sacred Games shoot – Vikramaditya Motwane is directing Saif Ali Khan and Anurag Kashyap is shooting the portions with Nawazuddin Siddique.
While no official reason is given for this, It is said, men with burdens can’t go far. While Phantom Films is making its jump from mainstream to the streaming world, rumours of the conflicts between the directors are swirling stronger than ever.
Industry old hats will tell you that this happens routinely, mostly to save time, but the murky details of Phantom add a new tinge to what’s going on.
Sometime last year, there was a controversy about whether the brainiacs behind Phantom, Anurag Kashyap, Vikas Bahl and Vikramditya Motwane would stay together for a long time. There were many rumours but none of them were confirmed.
The division of labour right now is only one of the many hints that Phantom, while being one of the biggest names to venture into short films, still needs to exorcise ghosts of the past.
