Anurag Kashyap may be a big name today but what was he like as a newbie writer? We found an old interview of this director after the success of his first film Satya. In the 1998 success party of Satya, a rather simple Anurag was seen talking about his film and the whole experience of it.
Talking about Satya, a shy Anurag said that the basic idea of coming up with this film was that it will be a gangster film. Majority of the film shaped up on its way. On the dynamic characters that Satya has, Anurag drew his inspiration from ace directors like Martin Scorsese’s ‘Goodfellas’ and ‘Godfather’.
In an industry like Bollywood it is difficult to make a mark and thus giving all the credit of success to director Ram Gopal Verma, Anurag says, “Ramu Is A Very Open Director”. He found the director’s support essential for this film to work.
As we know that Anurag is a believer of realistic cinema, he added that, “Audience is intelligent and they want to see a change in cinema”. The director has definitely proved this after giving us successful offbeat films like Dev D and Gangs Of Wasseypur.
