Anurag Kashyap directorial project That Girl in Yellow Boots, may have won several accolades after being screened at the world premiere of the Venice International Film Festival and the North American premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival, but he may have reason to worry now. A few very explicit scenes of the film have been leaked on the Internet.
That Girl in Yellow Boots is co-scripted by Kalki Koechlin and boyfriend Anurag Kashyap. It is a thriller tracing Kalki’s search for her father, a man she hardly knew but cannot forget. Desperation drives her to work without a permit, at a massage parlour.
Three scenes that span five minutes of the film have been leaked online.
They have explicit, bold dialogues and some sexual scenes as well. It’s possible that the scenes leaked out post the screening of the film at the festivals.
But keeping Anurag’s natural proclivity to problematic content in mind, we should hope the news would not make him too uncomfortable. Will a private screening in your office help, Anurag?
