Reacting to adverse reactions to No Smoking, director Anurag Kashyap  had this to say:

since i do not have the liberty, and i get banned everytime i am directly stating my opinions(we started shooting much before Black friday got the clearence), one has to wage a guerilla war.. no smoking is my guerrilla war..

Here’s an old interview with Govind Nihalani and Rakesh Sharma from 2005. The two filmmakers talk about the then new multiplex phenomenon and the state of filmmaking. Also some innovative ideas to reach a wider audience. The interview concludes with Nihalani saying:

Extra legal censorship is getting stronger. It’s a recognition of the power of art. So fight on. Go for guerrilla creativity.
