Anurag Kashyap has developed quite a taste for acting. After playing a director in Zoya Akhtar"s Luck By Chance he"s back in Sudhir Mishra"s Tera Kya Hoga Johnny. And Sudhir is so impressed by Anurag"s acting abilities that he has already signed the Dev D director for a pivotal role in Mishra"s next project later this year.
And Anurag isn"t the only filmmaker playing a part in Mishra"s film.
“Tera Kya Hoga Johnny stars four directors, Anurag Kashyap, Aditya Bhattacharya, Ashok Pandit and of course me. I am not seen on screen though, “informs Mishra.
Sudhir is not too pleased with his own acting skills. “I saw what I was capable of in Traffic Signal. Madhur Bhandarkar insisted on having me play the Don. I didn"t like my performance at all. In Tera Kya Hoga Johnny only my back appears appears on screen."
Anurag Kashyap however has a full-fledged role.
Informs Sudhir, “Audiences will get to see Anurag as a full actor, close-ups and all. Anurag has a great screen presence. In fact I"ve signed him for my next film as well."
