Director Anurag Kashyap is likely to shift base to France for some time in the future

The latest buzz has it that Anurag Kashyap will be moving out of the country for some time. A source says, "Anurag has been working non-stop on 'Bombay Velvet' since the past few months and he is now contemplating fly down to Paris and living there for a while.

Of course, he will be working there and so he’ll continue to be a part of Bollywood. But he will spend more time out of the country as he wishes to move base to France and try and operate from there. This will happen sometime next year after the release of his ambitious project, 'Bombay Velvet'."

Apart from this film, Kashyap is apparently also keen to see 'Ugly' release in India after it was screened at Cannes last year. "'Ugly' has been stuck for a long time now, and he is keen to see it release in theatres as soon as possible. It is a project that he holds close to his heart and he’s said to be looking forward to its release on September 19, though it’s a tentative date at this stage,” says the source.

When contacted, Anurag said, “The only thing true is my moving out but it’s not going to happen in the immediate future. I have a lot to finish here. And I only have stories that I want to turn into films in India. So even if I move, it will be a temporary and partial move.”
