Often considered the go-to man or the 'Godfather' by many aspiring filmmakers, Anurag Kashyap is a man who is an unalloyed movie lover. All he ever believes in is to watch movies, make them and let others around him do the same. His style of film-making is often defined by the unexpected twists and surprises his stories have. After having completed over 23 years in Mumbai, Brand Anurag Kashyap is now expected to make films that are not just edgy but also driven by good content, casting and visuals.
You may love him, you may hate him, but can you ignore him? Probably not. It is interesting to note that he even finds an audience in people who claim to dislike his kind of cinema.
Kashyap is credited with making unknown personalities, like Richa Chadda, Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Huma Qureshi, Bejoy Nambiar and Amit Trivedi, overnight stars. And that is not the only reason why we love him.
On his birthday, we thought it might be worth taking a look at some of the other reasons:
He is a fabulous actor.
If you didn't think so already after all his cameos, you should totally watch Akira!
He has a great sense of humor.
Don't think so? Watch him answer the rapid fire questions on Koffee With Karan!
We wish the poster boy of indie cinema a very Happy Birthday!
