Anurag Kashyap, including Nawazuddin Siddiqui, reached the whole cast of the film Cannes Festival. Not only this, the crowds were arranged for the visitors who came to see the film. Many foreigners also wore a punch while supporting the film.
Gangs of Wasseypur is considered a milestone in the career of Anurag Kashyap and Nawazuddin Siddiqui only. Rather, the film was successful in making tremendous recognition at the international level. On May 22, 2012, Gangs of Wasseypur was premiered at the 65th Cannes Film Festival. During that time, the film was seen as an effort to reduce the scope of art house cinema and mainstream commercial cinema.
Although Kashyap had clearly said that he wanted to make this film the mainstream typical Indian film because before that he had made dark and experimental films like Gulle and No Smoking. But the way the film was taken in the International Film Festivals, it was quite astonishing.
The special thing is that the entire cast of the film, including Anurag Kashyap, Nawazuddin Siddiqui, reached the ground at that time. Not only this, the crowds were arranged for the visitors who came to see the film. Many foreigners also wore a punch while supporting the film.
To see the Gangs of Wasseypur, the whole hall of Cannes was filled. This hall has seating facilities for 800 people. The special thing is that Anurag showed the two parts of the film together at the Cannes Film Festival. That is, the people who reached Cannes had seen the film 5 hours and 20 minutes long in a bar.
The audience in Cannes was so impressed with the film that after the film was over, the whole hall was buzzing with applause. Anurag himself did not expect that his film would get such a big response in the world’s most prestigious film festival.
The celebrated Hollywood Reporter compared Anurag Kashyap to Hollywood’s popular director Quentin Tarantino. Five, after the shocks from films like Black Friday, Gulal and No Smoking, Gangs of Wasseypur did some work for Anurag’s rebirth. Today even though the Cannes Film Festival focuses more on the glamorous avatar of stars but it was Anurag who had done the work of bringing Hindi cinema on the international scene.
