Mumbai, July 17 (IANS) Filmmaker Anurag Kashyap, who was co-producing late director Mani Kaul’s unfinished projects, is determined to complete them.
Kaul, who was believer of “new and bold cinema”, passed away July 6 in Delhi following prolonged illness. He was 66.
“One is ‘She Under Her Spell’, the other is ‘Deewar Mein Khirki Rehti To’. He also wanted to work on another book ‘Rossilline’. I was producing the films with NFDC (National Film Development Corporation of India) and other three four producers abroad, Kashyap, who is known for co-producing internationally accalimed “Udaan”, told IANS.
“I want to do those films, but I have to sit with everyone to decide how to go about it. But ‘Rossilline’ would be surly made.”
Remembering his days with Kaul, Kashyap said: “I can’t believe that he is no more. He was just an incredible teacher and a great friend and someone who never looked down upon anyone.”
Kashyap, known for directing movies like “Black Friday” and “Dev D”, confirmed the theatrical release date of his much talked about film “That Girl in Yellow Boots”, in which his wife actress Kalki Koechlin plays the protagonist.
“‘That Girl In Yellow Boots’ is releasing on 2nd September,” he said.
The thriller traces Ruth’s (Kalki) search for her father, a man she hardly knew but cannot forget.
Kashyap’s other two films, “Gangs of Wasseypur” and “Michael”, are in the post-production stage and he said that they would release this year.
