Anurag Kashyap gets threatening calls
Mumbai: Anurag Kashyap and his entire film unit of ‘Gangs of Waseypur’ might be over the moon with the reception the film got during the promos at Cannes International film festival. The film revolves around coal mafia of Dhanbad. However their joy is short lived as Anurag started getting threatening calls from unknown numbers. Many suspect that this was the handiwork of people who believe that coal mafia of Dhanbad will take the limelight away from the Mumbai mafia.
However source close to the film maker says “They mean no harm. They seem to be local goons who might be related to the underworld. Their only grouse is over Anurag throwing light on the mafia in Dhanbad,” Director Anurag didn’t deny this development, but stated that he doesn’t want to comment on the issue. “Maybe a few people are anxious that with his new film, the spotlight might shift away from the Mumbai underworld,” the source claims.
They were especially unhappy, it seems, about the film coming from the same man who wrote Satya (1998), a landmark movie on the Mumbai underworld.The film features an ensemble cast including Jaideep Ahlawat, Manoj Bajpai, Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Richa Chadda in the lead roles.
