Gangs Of Wasseypur Completes 7 Years; Anurag Kashyap Says The Film Ruined His Life
Exactly seven years ago is when Anurag Kashyap introduced us to his masterpiece Gangs of Wasseypur and brought in a new dawn of cinematic brilliance in this country. Critically acclaimed and well received by the audience, it has in years since garnered a cult following.

On the seventh anniversary of the film’s release, the director tweeted about how the film ruined his life. Coming as a surprise, he goes on to explain as to how everyone wants him to repeat the same thing again and again and have those expectations from him as a filmmaker. He hopes that his “Saadhe saati”, which signifies the period of Shani in Indian Astrology, considered to be a phase full of challenges, finishes by the end of 2019.

Anurag Kashyap took to Twitter yesterday and wrote, "Seven years back is exactly when my life got ruined. Since then all everyone wants me to do is the same thing over and over again. Whereas I have only been unsuccessfully trying to get away from that expectation. Anyways hope that Saadhe Saati is over by the end of 2019.”

The movie Gangs of Wasseypur was based on a real life story and managed to collect a whopping 10 cr in the opening weekend itself.  It featured Manoj Bajpayee, Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Piyush Mishra and Richa Chadha. Filmmaker Anurag Kashyap is currently working on a film with Saiyami Kher and Roshan Mathew. His other films include Black Friday, Dev D, Gulaal, Ugly, Raman Raghav, Mukkabaaz and Manmarziyaan.
