Filmmaker Anurag Kashyap, who is all excited to attend the 65th Cannes film festival (CFF), has said that Cannes is the Mecca for every filmmaker. Despite being a commercial film, his next movie Gangs of Wasseypur has been selected for screening at the CFF. He is all thrilled about it.
Talking to PTI, Anurag Kashyap said, "Cannes is the Mecca for every filmmaker. People usually think if a film goes to Cannes its an art film, but we have made a commercial film. It has taken lot of years for me to reach here. This year, so many films from here have gone to Cannes. For me a film being selected for the Cannes festival is a tremendous thing."
The Bollywood filmmaker is now busy promoting the movie Gangs of Wasseypur in India. Anurag added, "It is important for me to know where and what my target audience is and what they like to see as everyone used to tell me don't make this film or that. Today, I realised I was not wrong.”
However, Gangs of Wasseypur is a revenge drama, which is set in a small town in Jharkand. The movie stars Manoj Bajpayee, Tigmanshu Dhulia, Huma Qureshi, Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Reema Sen and others. Anurag Kashyap further said, "For the first time I have made a commercial film...It is a massy film. It is my most expensive film till date.”
