Apart from being a world class filmmaker, Anurag Kashyap has supported a few films as a presenter, latest being the write-actor turned director-producer Zeishan Quadri’s upcoming film Meeruthiya Gangsters. Not only that Anurag has edited the film as well.
Zeishan had written Gangs Of Wasseypur (GOW), assisted Anurag on it and then acted in the same film where he played the popular character “Definite”.
When asked, Anurag informed that when he was invited by Zeishan to see the first cut of the film, he “kind of made an excuse because he was scared that he might not like it”.
The film maker explains that the film shows a modern India that is escalating with urbanisation and desire of becoming rich overnight. “I love the film, and have decided to come on board [as a presenter]. Watch the film, and you can see from where the characters of GOW came from,” says Anurag, who has earlier presented films like Chittagong (2012), and documentaries such as Katiyabaaz (2014) and The World Before Her (2014).
