Anurag Kashyap started his career as a writer with a bang with Ram Gopal Varma"s Satya. Since then even after turning director he is more acclaimed for his crazy writing work than direction what with films like No Smoking, Dev D and of course the well acclaimed Black Friday. His written dialogues for films like Nayak – The Real Hero and Yuva were well applauded. But now, Kashyap has decided to bid writing goodbye and concentrate on direction.
Kashyap's present writing assignments on hand include – Goldie Behl"s next after Drona titled Shor, Rensil D"Silva"s Jehaad starring Saif Ali Khan, Kareena Kapoor and Vivek Oberoi and film by Homi Adajania (Being Cyrus) which is a Saif Ali Khan production. And finally there is UTV"s Gurudutt which may see Aamir Khan playing the title role of the acclaimed actor-filmmaker. But once he is done with these he will not write anything unless for close buddy Vikramaditya Motwane if he turns director. Motwane was Kashyap"s co-writer in films like Dhan Dhana Dhan Goal and Dev D.
Well, it is definitely going to be a major loss for Kashyap"s writing fans as his each single film has succeeded in achieving cult status of its own.
