Anurag Kashyap is one of the most sought after filmmakers in the tinsel town of Bollywood. He has delivered some of the best Bollywood movies of this century. From making critically acclaimed to hit movies, Anurag has done it all. Kashyap’s fame increased with the 2012 film Gangs of Wasseypur. He is the man behind several movies including Manmarziyaan, No Smoking, Gulaal, Dev D, Bombay Velvet, Black Friday, Ugly, Mukkabaaz and others. Recently, in Pinkvilla’s new segment ‘Cult Creators’, Anurag talked about his bond with popular filmmaker Karan Johar.
Anurag said: “Karan Johar was a late discovery he comes from privileged and i knew his father. I have judged a lot about him. When I met him, I noticed he looked like me, but on the other side of the coin. He also treats his filmmakers, people and his directors, giving them equal freedom and empowerment. He is a misunderstood person. The most amazing thing about him is that he has his own critic. Today the creative head of Dharmatics Somen Mishra was the biggest Karan Johar critic and what Karan Johar did was hire him. That is a sign of a visionary and a brave man.”
Anurag Kashyap is currently waiting for his highly anticipated director’s release, dobaaraa. Starring Taapsee Pannu and Pavail Gulati, the film revolves around Taapsee’s quest to rescue a young boy, who communicates with her through a television set. The mystery drama is an official remake of the 2018 Spanish film Mirage and is slated for a theatrical release on August 19, 2022.
