When the first part of Gangs of Wasseypur was released on June 22, 2012, little did anyone know that the cult film about a gangster who clashes with a ruthless, coal-mining kingpin, will become a massive hit of Bollywood. After seven years of its release, filmmaker Anurag Kashyap has shocked everyone by saying that when "Gangs Of Wasseypur" was released, his life got "ruined".
"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," Kashyap tweeted on Saturday.
"Gangs Of Wasseypur", based on a real life story, was loved by the masses for its rawness. It had managed to collect Rs 10 crore in the opening weekend.
The gang war drama based in Wasseypur in Dhanbad district, Jharkhand, featured Manoj Bajpayee, Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Piyush Mishra and Richa Chadha.
Kashyap has helmed films like "Black Friday", "Dev D", "Gulaal", "Ugly", "Raman Raghav", "Mukkabaaz" and "Manmarziyaan".
He is currently working on a new film with Roshan Mathew and Saiyami Kher.
