Anurag has shared a note on Instagram regarding taking fees from people who meet him to enter the film industry. His note reads: “I wasted a lot of time trying to help newbies and ended up with mostly mediocre crap. So, from now on, I don’t want to waste my time meeting new people who think they are creative. So now I will have meeting rates. If someone wants to meet me for 15 minutes, I will charge Rs 1 lakh, for half an hour Rs 2 lakh and 1 hour Rs 5 lakh. This is the rate. I’m tired of wasting time meeting people. Call me or stay away if you think you can afford this.”

Anurag emphasized that he is serious about this, as he captioned his post, “And I mean it. Don’t text, DM or call me. Pay, and you get time. I’m not a charity tired of people looking for shortcuts.”

Anurag often collaborates with young talent and has been known for mentoring filmmakers over the years. On the work front, his last directorial films were Alaya F starrer Almost Pyaar with DJ Mohabbat and Sunny Leone’s Kennedy.

After this, he has not announced any new projects. However, he was seen showcasing his acting skills opposite Nawazuddin Siddiqui in Haddi. Debutant director Akshat Ajay Sharma, previously Anurag’s assistant director, directed the film.
