Anurag Kashyap on all things zany about 'Aiyyaa'
Anurag Kashyap's upcoming film could well resemble a melting pot of ideas and emotions. After all, the project has a Marathi director, Bengali actress and a South Indian actor and Anurag is originally from Uttar Pradesh
The director-producer talks about his wakda team and a few other things about his film...
Your upcoming film seems to be quite an amalgamation of all things wakda!
The most wakda among the team was definitely my director Sachin Kundalkar. The others (Rani Mukerji and Prithviraj) were already on board. The addition of Amit Trivedi and Amitabh Bhattacharya made this amalgamation all the more interesting!
Can you speak in Marathi?
No, I don’t as I never felt the need to learn the language. But I can understand Marathi.
Do you like Maharashtrian food?
We were shooting in Pune and so we did try some Maharashtrian fare. One thing that I know for sure is they make their food really spicy!
In your film Rani says, ‘Mujhe gore nahi kale ladke pasand hai.’ What do you have to say about the furore the line has managed to create?
Huwa tha aisa kuch drama… People do and say many things. But I don’t take them seriously.
We heard your film Lootera with Sonakshi Sinha and Ranveer Singh has been preponed.
Really? I have no clue! You should get Vikas Bahl (co-producer) to respond on this.
