‘Gangs Of Wasseypur’: Anurag defends the movie’s budget
Riding high on the success of Gangs of Wasseypur, maverick filmmaker Anurag Kashyap remarked that audience doesn’t understand films. Kashyap recently remarked that India is suffering because the audience here do not endorse the good cinema.
“People say that we do not make enough good movies. But, I want to ask, who endorses such cinema when they do get made? Audience do not understand the pains we filmmakers take to bring a good story to screen but it is very easy to complain,” he said in an earlier interview.
Interestingly, Anurag had also come in the line of fire when it was reported that the budget of the film was Rs 45 crores. He cleared the air on Twitter: “To Clear all misconceptions about the budget of Gangs of Wasseypur.The cost of the 2 parts together is 18.40 crore which makes one film at 9.20 crore.” He further tweeted: “45 crore as reported in the media is false.”
Set in authentic back drop of Wasseypur, a small town near Dhanbad is a tale of revenge that runs deep within families. It is in universal in theme, is a tale of revenge, crime, family and love. In fact the format of Gangs of Wasseypur is so universal that it cuts across all kinds of audience like an epic Mahabharat or Ramayan would.
