Director Anurag Kashyap on the various perceptions about him; insists Gangs Of Wasseypur is his best cinematic work to date
Do you consciously try to make intellectual films that stand apart from mainstream cinema?
Intellectual is a relative term. I don’t think it’s intelligent to watch Gangs Of Wasseypur (GOW). You just need to be clear-minded and have the ability to absorb (the story and various characters). The movies I make come naturally to me, because that’s what I know best. There should be different films in the industry. Why should there be a herd mentality?
You have become something of a brand yourself ?
I guess so. Anything that helps me make my film is fine. But no one comes to me
