While talking to the media about this, Anurag himself once said that ‘this thing did not come to our mind while making the film. We just wanted to make a good picture. But after the picture was made, we didn’t think it would be bigger than life. It was unimaginable that this film would have such an effect on people’s hearts. If the reports are to be believed, Anurag said ‘what can I do now but I apologize to the people of Wasepur for this’.
