HAPPY BIRTHDAY ANURAG KASHYAP: Anurag Kashyap is often referred to as the flagbearer of Indian Noir-cinema. His off-beat movies with a dark and ominous tone have always been adored by fans. Kashyap, who is also honoured as the face of the new wave of Indian cinema, has collaborated with numerous novice actors.
In addition to being a filmmaker, Kashyap has also worked as a producer and screenwriter. He has made a few cameos in films as well. Kashyap made his debut as a director with the movie Paanch, however, it was not given the ‘all clear tag’ by the censor board and it remains unreleased to date.
He got his major break as a co-writer in Ram Gopal Varma’s crime drama Satya. He then went on to make some big hits like Gangs of Wasseypur. Four years after Manmarziyaan, the director made a big-screen comeback in 2022 with Dobaaraa.
As he turns a year older today, let us have a look at his latest and upcoming movies:
