Rishi Kapoor is not new to the world of controversies. His outright and frank nature on Twitter has gotten him into serious trouble on more than a few occasions.

The recent one being Rishi Kapoor's statement on directors Anurag Kashyap and Anurag Basu for 'Bombay Velvet' and 'Jagga Jasoos' respectively made at Neha Dhupia's audio-chat show 'No Filter With Neha'. Both these 'big-budgeted' films featured Rishi's son and nation's heartthrob Ranbir Kapoor. Alas, both left audiences dejected and were a major let-down at the box-office.

On the show, the senior Kapoor was asked to speak about a topic for a minute, and it was any Anurag in his life!

Rishi Kapoor answered with spontaneity, "There is Anurag Kashyap, who made 'Bombay Velvet', but he made a better film in 'Gangs of Wasseypur'. I couldn't understand head or tale about 'Bombay Velvet'."

Talking about director Anurag Basu, who directed 'Jagga Jasoos,' his son Ranbir's maiden production venture; Rishi Kapoor lashed out at him when the film tanked.

On Neha Dhupia's show, he continued his 'Anurag' topic and said, "And then there was Basu (Anurag Basu), who made 'Barfi' an outstanding film. I am so happy he took my son for it. My son got great recognition for it, and then he made this 'Gajja' Jasoos... what 'Jagga Jasoos' whatever... which he made a total mess of. It was as messy as my pronunciation."

"He probably got indulged too much. I guess both the 'Anurags' got indulged in their films. You know when they are good enough to work on a certain budget and suddenly they are given huge budgets in hand so 'bandar ke haath mein khilona nahin aa jaata hai,' he goes absolutely berserk. So I think that's what actually happened with both these guys. They were given budgets they could not handle and I guess it happens. It happens with every director, every actor you can't have a hundred percent record anyway...So it happens," concluded the unfiltered audio by Rishi Kapoor.

Wonder what the Anurags have to say about it?
