Anurag Kashyap

The director is all set to helm an international project next year.


For a while now, rumour mills have been buzzing overtime about Anurag Kashyap’s hush-hush plans to direct a Hollywood film. Reports confirm that the film in question is a dark crime thriller.


Says a source close to the development, “Anurag will only focus on this film in mid-June, after the release of his period thriller Bombay Velvet. The international project will kick-start in July and is a completely western production which will be shot entirely abroad.”


When contacted, Anurag, not surprisingly, was unwilling to discuss details, “The international project is currently at a preliminary stage. It will not begin till the final print of Bombay Velvet is delivered. That’s when we will start pre-production on it. It is a big project but we cannot reveal what is going on. As and when the time is right, we will speak about it.”


Meanwhile, speculation is rife that his Ranbir Kapoor-Anushka Sharma starrer, Bombay Velvet, which was to release in November, requires 60 days of reshooting. Work on the sound and the background score has started. We are working to find the right sound.”


After this Anurag will work on the final editing, then will start promoting the film and gearing up for a big May release.”
