Filmmaker Sudhir Mishra, who is known for his distinctive films, is currently busy directing his next film Aur Devdas and says he has roped in Anurag Kashyap in the film.
Sudhir Mishra says, “I am shooting for Aur Devdas; in fact I have almost shot for the film in Lucknow and by Dec 20th the film will be complete. In Delhi, I have the last schedule of the film. My close friend Anurag Kashyap is also acting in my film.”
Directed by Sudhir Mishra ‘Aur Devdas‘ features Rahul Bhatt, Richa Chadha, Aditi Rao Hydari among others.
When asked how different ‘Aur Devdas‘ is going to be from Dev D, he said, “Obviously Dev D was a great film. He is a different filmmaker and I am a different filmmaker. I love his films. There are hardly any directors like Anurag Kashyap in this industry.”
Sudhir also feels this is the best time to be in the industry where there is an absolute balance of masala films and serious films.
He says, “Masala films are being made since ages. Now things are better today as we have Queen, Haider, Paan Singh Tomar, Lootera and we have some good directors. I think it’s a good time in cinema at the same time entertaining products are also being made. So what’s the harm? Nobody wants to watch serious cinema all the time. If popular entertainment is being made well then nothing like it.”
