Filmmaker Anurag Kashyap took to his Twitter handle to celebrate 22 years of the iconic movie, Satya, and joked about growing old. He also hinted at trying different types of cinema saying that there is much more to it.
Remembering Satya, which he co-wrote with Saurabh Shukla, Anurag tweeted, "Satya ko 22 saal ho gae, Wasseypur ko 8 saal ho gae. Kul mila kar 30 saal ho gae. Hum buddhe ho chuke hain, ab aage badhte hain, kuch aur karte hain. Cinema abhi aur bhi hai. (Satya has completed 22 years, Wasseypur completed 8 years. In total, 30 years have gone by. I have turned old. I shall now move on, do something else. There is much more to cinema)."
“सत्या” को बाईस साल हो गए “वासेपुर” को आठ साल हो गए । कुल मिला के तीस साल हो गए । हम बुड्ढे हो चुके है ,अब आगे बढ़ते हैं , कुछ और करते हैं। सिनेमा अभी और भी है।— Anurag Kashyap (@anuragkashyap72) July 3, 2020
