Furious with Hotstar’s self righteousness that led to censorship of award winning 2015 film “Masaan,” both producer Anurag Kashyap and directpr Neeraj Ghaywan took to Twitter to express their displeasure. In fact Anurag Kashyap even considers torrent downloads better that what Hotstar has put up on its site. In Kashyap’s words “If you haven’t seen ‘Masaan’, better to download it on torrents or watch a pirated DVD than see it on Hotstar. It’s mutilated on it.” writer Varun Grover also came out in support for the film and against the biased morality of Star Ntwork.
