Not your typical villain: Anurag Kashyap on Kazbe in Bad Cop

Actor-director Anurag Kashyap will soon feature in a new web series titled Bad Cop that will stream on Disney+Hotstar on 21st June.

Recently, he gave an interview regarding his antagonist role in the series. He states that although he is a villain, he’s always not bad. Adding further, he says that his character is a family-oriented person and this is what makes this character unique and contrasting.

Says Anurag on his character in the series,

I loved the idea of this guy (Kazbe) who is in prison and he’s operating from there. But he’s very emotionally attached to his family. The idea of a villain being so emotionally attached to his family is very contrasting. He may be the villain but he is not the bad guy all the time. In his head, he’s trying to do business and he’s trying to run a family and he’s having fun.

Anurag gives interesting and intriguing details of Kazbe from Bad Cop

As fans wanted to know more about Anurag’s character from the series, the actor-director indulged their curiosity by sharing some intriguing details of the same.

Says Anurag in the interview,

Kazbe mama is a one of a kind villain. His aura is charismatic and lethal at the same time. I was scared and sceptical when shooting for gore scenes; as opposed to my films. Kazbe is powerful, hard-hitting and I drew traits from many of my negative characters that I had created, to prepare for this role.

Adding further, he says,

I have created a lot of characters that are gore, quirky, dark and many more things but believe it or not it was difficult for me to be one. Kazbe is someone who doesn’t think too much before doing anything, he just does it. He is a dreadful, eccentric, nefarious and a quintessential villain. I had to bite into the intricacies of this character and make it my own.
