Anurag Kashyap`s `Ugly`, which created waves at the Cannes International Film Festival earlier this year, made its Asia premiere here and left an audience full of filmmakers, army trainees and media, numb with its `ugliness`.
The third edition of the Ladakh International Film Festival (LIFF) to be held in Leh June 27-29, will have multiple highlights - while Anurag Kashyap`s `Ugly` will have a green carpet premiere, there will be a special retrospective on the globally acclaimed filmmaker Akiro Kurosawa.
Director Anurag Kashyap, who has approached the Bombay High Court against the Censor Board after it objected to the exclusion of the anti-smoking disclaimer in his upcoming film `Ugly`, says he is a socially responsible filmmaker and will fight till the end to secure justice in the matter.
While the entire cast of Anurag Kashyap`s ‘Ugly’ was busy with promotional interactions, actor Rahul Bhatt`s absence couldn`t go unnoticed. He is avoiding public appearances because the makers want to keep his looks under wraps.
