Anurag Kashyap

Kaun hain Anurag Kashyap

Wonder what brings out a cinematic genius every time he lays his hands on making a film? And this man had to make a short film to prove himself as a storyteller! With banned films, censored scenes, and finally a string of hits, he is certainly the ‘been there, done that’ guy of Bollywood today. And as he has been through all this, he has followed nothing but his dreams. Anurag turns 40 this September. And he is a true UPite. Oh yes he comes from Gorakhpur! In his early years, he went around all over the state and spent his days in Varanasi, Saharanpur, Obra and Dehradun before being sent to the Scindia School, Gwalior. Anurag was totally filmy right from his younger days. He’d watch Kora Kagaz and Aandhi repeatedly at a nearby club and open-air theater. A film calledLadri di biciclette’ nailed his dream of taking up films as a career as final. And finally Mumbai happened to him in 1993. It took him 5 years to write his first script for Ram Gopal Varma. And the very next year, he won the Best Screenplay for ‘Satya’ at the Star Screen Awards. His directorial debut happened in a nondescript tele-film called ‘Last train to mahakali’. Even his first directorial feature ‘Paanch’ remains unreleased till date. But then who cares when the man himself has become synonymous to cinematic bliss. Catch him here as he reveals the struggles, the excitement and raw power of fighting to make it large. So when he gets all that he ever wanted, what is the question that faces him?
