After much speculation, BizAsiaLive.com has learnt that there is indeed set to be a collaboration between Aanand L Rai and Anurag Kashyap. The latter will be directing films for the former’s Colour Yellow Productions.
According to DNA, Rai confirmed, “He (Kashyap) is one of my favourite directors. I always wanted to collaborate and do something. Now that we have got an opportunity, we are doing it.”
The ‘Raman Raghav 2.0’ helmer will reportedly direct two films for Rai’s production house, one of which would be a small town love story set in Uttar Pradesh, as BizAsiaLive.com recently reported. To a query on this, Rai said, “It will be better if Anurag tells more about it.”
Rai was at a special party to celebrate many accolades and he continued to say, “Definitely it takes a lot of courage and these are the times where we should tell all these new stories. It’s an opening for us as filmmakers and even audience.It’s a growing industry in terms of stories, thinking, so we need these gutsy directors to come up and give us a new beginning.”
The director continued to comment,”The reason is that we directors are a little darpok (scared) to tell stories so even the audience are not used to it. The more stories we tell, move forward with guts, the audience will get habitual and movies will work.”
