Nataraja Subramani aka Natty, the famous cinematographer in the Indian film industry recently took to Twitter to express his displeasure on Anurag Kashyap. In a series of tweets, he told how he expected things from Anurag but he ignored. Anurag Kashyap has come across the same and has tendered a public apology to Natty. Anurag accepted that he was not there with Natty when he needed him.
'Been reading a lot about @natty_nataraj‘S outburst being reported in the media. For the record, I want to state here that he is not just my friend but we grew together in cinema. When I did not know how to communicate my shot to my cameraman, he taught me how to. He was my teacher, he showed me how to move a camera, he was my first collaborator. He shot “Last Train to Mahakali”, “Paanch” and “Black Friday”. We lived our Years of ban and obscurity together. It was @natty_nataraj who introduced me to Tamizh cinema. It was @natty_nataraj who introduced me to director Bala, it was him who made me meet Rajni Sir, he showed me my first Tamizh film starring @dhanushkraja directed by Selvaraghavan. Without subtitles. After which I discovered other Tamizh cinema. So if he feels hurt by something and has an outburst, because of a certain expectation from me, he has every right and it’s between two friends. And he comes from a place of love and honesty. @natty_nataraj has taught me so much and has been with me in my most obscure years. And please hear him. I just got off the phone with him and all he has been doing is trying to reach me. so please leave him alone and treat this as my official statement on the matter. His hurt is genuine. I wasn’t there when he needed me and I didn’t know about it. So let me say it very clearly. “I am sorry Natty".' he posted.
Natty too responded to the same on his profile. 'I love you. Thank you, Anurag. for the past media out here. made me I was bad.' wrote Natty.
Hope the issue ends here and it is good on Anurag's part to come up and tender an open apology.
