“Goli Nahi Maarenge….Keh Ke Lenge Uski”
In an era where candy-floss popcorn entertainers and family melodramas rules the charts, there came a man who dared to be different, dark, bold and gritty- Anurag Kashyap.
From a dark film like ‘Black Friday’ to the fun animation movie ‘Return of Hanuman’, from the story of a man trying to meet Amitabh Bachchan in the light-hearted ‘Murabba’ segment in ‘Bombay Talkies’ to the story of a man trying to find his daughter in the dark-thriller ‘Ugly’; Anurag Kashyap has made an entry not just into the list of the Best Directors of India, but into the hearts of every young Indian who wants to grow up and become a filmmaker.
Yes, he truly has given every young filmmaker an all new courage, zeal and encouragement to follow your dreams and be unique, to break the stereotype and become the next Anurag Kashyap.
Here’s wishing the man who has given us the ‘Gangs of Wasseypur’ series and dreamt of giving the Indian cinema a Hollywood-styled gangster flick like ’Bombay Velvet’ a very Happy Birthday!
