‘My life got ruined with that film’, says Anurag Kashyap on the occasion of ‘Gangs of Wasseypur’ completing seven years


Filmmaker Anurag Kashyap says when Gangs Of Wasseypur released on this day seven years ago, his life got "ruined". June 22, 2012, was when the first installment of the two-part Gangs of Wasseypur released. It is a cult film that revolves around a gangster who clashes with a ruthless, coal-mining kingpin.

"Seven years back is exactly when my life got ruined. Since then all everyone wants me to do is the same thing over and over again. Whereas I have only been unsuccessfully trying to get away from that expectation. Anyways hope that 'Saadhe Saati' is over by the end of 2019," Kashyap tweeted on Saturday. He was replying to a tweet by an infotainment portal.
