Songs shouldn't break the flow: Anurag Kashyap
Anurag Kashyap feels it is time for filmmakers to use songs in such a way that they don't obstruct the story.

Chennai: Songs and dance are a must in Indian movies and Anurag Kashyap feels it is time for filmmakers to use them in such a way that they do not obstruct the flow of the story. "All my films have songs, but I make sure I don't deviate from the narrative of the film. Songs in cinema are intrinsically part of us and, therefore, we can't ignore them," he said Wednesday while speaking about screenwriting at the Media and Entertainment Business Conclave (MEBC), being organised by Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FICCI) here.

"People say westerners hate songs in Indian cinema, but that's not true. The truth is that they don't like to be disturbed from the flow of the film. They don't like songs to change the setting of a film," he added.

The 'Gangs of Wasseypur' director is currently busy with his next project titled 'Ugly'.

He also said that the future of entertainment is online and filmmakers should embrace it as fast as they can. "Today, larger chunk of the audience is under the age of 35, who prefer watching movies or listening to songs online. Filmmakers and producers should quickly adapt to the oncoming change and cater to audience via this space," Kashyap said.

He was speaking about screen writing on the second day of Media and Entertainment Business Conclave (MEBC), a Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FICCI) initiative.

"My film 'Black Friday' never got wider release, but the audiences still get to watch it because someone had posted the film online," Kashyap said.
