Sudhir Mishra says he is inspired by filmmaker Anurag Kashyap, who has assisted the director in the past.

"With the kind of subjects that are explored in films today there are times when some young filmmakers inspire me.
Yesterday Anurag Kashyap assisted me but today he is my inspiration," Mishra told reporters here at an event.
This year, Kashyap's big budget film 'Bombay Velvet' tanked at the box-office. Mishra, however, liked the film and feels it's ok to see failure at times.
"I liked 'Bombay Velvet'... When you like a director you even like his flaws. Everybody doesn't succeed all the time.
It's not possible. It's the job of audience and critics to dismiss things people. My job is not to dismiss anyone."
"He is trying to do better but he failed ...but I like his films. I liked 'Gangs of Wasseypur'," Mishra said.
