Kashyap’s Next: A Big Budget Film


Anurag Kashyap, who is known for making serious and low-budget films, is now ready to make the most expensive film of his career. The film, which will go on floor on December 3, will be produced by Kashyap, Sunil Bohra and Studio 18.

Tentatively titled as titled Gangs of Wasseypur, will have no A-list stars, its budget will be nothing less than a whopping Rs 45 crore, approximately. Manoj Bajpai and Raima Sen will play the lead roles in the film.  Anurag stated,

“It’s a stylised action plot, in which a revenge drama is spread over three decades. Everyone is aware that Manoj and I are working together after Satya in this film. We are going to shoot for the next three and a half months in UP, Bihar and Orissa.”

Apparently, the movie doesn’t have any big stars from Hollywood. When asked this from Anurag, he said,

“Yes, it is an expensive film and I have never worked on such a big budget before. The only known actors are Manoj and Raima and, to an extent, Piyush Mishra. All the other actors are new but extremely talented. Also, the film is a musical and we have quite a few songs that will be shot in a stylised manner.”
