Anurag Kashyap has always been known to power great content both as a director and a producer. The filmmaker is now presenting the Assamese film, Aamis, directed by Bhaskar Hazarika. He took to his Instagram account to share the news. Take a look:

A dark love story, Aamis has been written and directed by filmmaker Bhaskar Hazarika who according to Anurag is "fearless and is telling a story that is unique." Bhaskar's first film Kothanodi received the National Award in 2016. The film stars debutants Lima Das and Arghadeep Barua, supported by Neetali Das, Sagar Saurabh and Manash K Das, and is produced by Poonam Deol and Shyam Bora in association with Wishberry Films.

The film also premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York earlier this year, where it was nominated in five categories, including Best Film. Aamis also received two awards at the recently concluded Singapore South Asian International Film Festival - Best Director for Bhaskar Hazarika and Best Actress for Lima Das.

Expressing his views, writer-director Bhaskar Hazarika says, "Having Anurag Kashyap to present the film is a dream come true for all of us in the team. Anurag is known for his unique and original vision, and his support for Aamis will definitely go a long way in putting the film in the public eye.

Aamis will be releasing in Assam and selected cities of India on November 22 this year.
