Anurag Kashyap, Salman Khan’s connection!


By Hindustan Times

It seems filmmaker Anurag Kashyap and actor Salman Khan have a hidden connection, which might be intentional from Anurag Kashyap’s side at least. In Gangs of Wasseypur (GOW) 2, Kashyap has given an extensive reference to Khan. The look of the character of Definite, played by Zeishan nQuadri, who is also the script writer of the film, will captivate Khan’s Tere Naam hairstyle. His look is completely inspired by the Bollywood star. In fact, the character even mouths Sallu’s famous dialogue from Maine Pyaar Kiya.

Earlier too, there has been speculation and questions in the media regarding Kashyap and Khan’s equation. The director-producer has announced the release date of his film, That Girl in Yellow Boots on September 2 last year. Incidentally, Khan’s Bodyguard was slated to hit screens the same day. The film was a big hit at the box office on an extended holiday weekend, while Kashyap’s unsettling That Girl In Yellow Boots did just about average business.

However, even this time, Kashyap has followed the same track. He will be releasing GOW2 on August 8, a week prior to Khan’s Ek Tha Tiger, which will releasee on August 15.
