In an interview with PTI, Anurag Kashyap said, “Cinema was created for the crime genre. All great cinema is the crime genre. Look at the list of top 100 films, the top 10 would be a crime. It’s a very cinematic genre.” He stated that sees crime genre as a fun genre and loves the small town pulpiness of it.

About bringing small town pulp in his own film Gangs Of Wasseypur, the filmmaker said, “I captured that by mistake. Andhadhun, Ek Chalees Ki Last Local, Delhi Belly were urban pulp, which nobody has done before. I’ve done village pulp with Gangs. The pulp, the fun, has been explored less.”
