Box Office India in questo articolo pubblicato il 4 maggio 2012 ha raccolto alcune dichiarazioni del regista Anurag Kashyap in relazione a Gangs of Wasseypur, il film in due parti che verrà proiettato a Cannes. Com'è nata l'idea di GOW? 'I went to watch Kalki’s (Koechlin) play at Prithvi and was sitting at the café. A guy spotted me sitting alone and started narrating his story. His name was Zeeshan Quadri. I knew immediately that I would make this film. In Wasseypur, people actually live their lives as if they were in a Hindi film'. Alcune considerazioni sono davvero esilaranti: '(parlando del cast) I am also introducing Tigmanshu Dhulia in the film and have given him a lot of screen space, unlike what he did to me in his film Shagird'. E ancora: 'My film has 25 item songs in it. Every character is an item. In fact, the entire film is an item'.
