IMPORTANT TICKETING INFORMATION BELOW
Anurag Kashyap is regarded as an auteur for his projection of modern post-independence India in his works, using guerrilla-filmmaking techniques such as hidden cameras in real locations, employing improvised dialogue with his actors, and frequently shooting on low-budget. Though some of his works have courted controversy in his own country, his bold directing style has found him favour with audiences and contemporaries, including British director Danny Boyle who cited Anurag's Black Friday and Satya as inspirations for his Academy Award-winning Slumdog Millionaire in 2008. Straddling commercial and independent success, Anurag Kashyap continues to redefine the image of Bollywood cinema today. Discover the influences and inspiration behind his works, from writing, producing and acting, and how he continues to challenge and reinvent his directing style.
Anurag Kashyap is an Indian film director, screenwriter, producer and actor. Despite his directorial debut, Paanch (2000), never getting released due to censorship issues, he continued to make films such as Black Friday (2007), which won the Grand Jury Prize at the 3rd Annual Indian Film Festival in Los Angeles, as well as Gangs of Wasseypur (2012) and Ugly (2014), both of which premiered at the Cannes Director’s Fortnight. As a producer, Kashyap’s slate includes Udaan (2010), Peddlers (2012) and The Lunchbox (2013), all of which competed at Cannes. In 2013, he was honoured by the French government with the Chevalier dans l’ordre des Arts et Lettres. Most recently, he was awarded with the Yash Bharti award by the Government of Uttar Pradesh for his contribution in the field of cinema.
