Arun Dutt asks Anurag Kashyap to tone down the controversial details about his father Guru Dutt’s personal life in his script

Anurag Kashyap is facing a serious hurdle. As he writes the biopic on the late Guru Dutt, the legend’s son Arun has raised objections. He has asked Anurag to tone down the controversial portions of Dutt’s personal life.

The untitled project is said to focus on the late filmmaker’s failed marriage to singer Geeta Dutt, his alleged affair with Waheeda Rehman and the uncanny circumstances surrounding Geeta’s death at the age of 41. The film will be directed by Shivendra Dungarpur.

A source says, “It is natural for Arun to tell Anurag that he can’t go all out in his script. Certain portions, if not handled well, might turn out to be in bad taste.”

Arun confirmed that he had laid down a few dos and don’ts about the details regarding his father’s life. He says, “That’s right. I don’t want the personal details to be sensationalised. Otherwise, I have no problem. Shivendra has done a lot of research on my father and this film is very close to his heart. Munnir Kabir (a writer and TV producer)

Anurag Kashyap

wants to make a film on my dad too. That will focus around 1957, when my dad made Pyaasa. But Anurag’s script focuses on my dad’s entire life.”

Whe Kashyap finishes his script, he will show it to Arun. “He will ask Kashyap to incorporate any changes,” the source added.  Anurag  remained unavailable for comment.
