'Gulaal' is very close to my heart: Anurag Kashyap
Maverick director Anurag Kashyap says his latest release Gulaal is a film most close to his heart because it deals with a subject that he felt angry for.
In his latest film, Kashyap delves into the world of student politics, love and greed in a feudal setting, which he says is the manifestation of his own anger.
"Gulaal is the result of my own deep-felt anger at the system. It was written at a time when I was very angry. It has been very close to my heart and is one of the most powerful films that I have made," the director best known for cult movies like Black Friday and Dev. D is quoted as saying by a news agency.
Kashyap says he has focused on many socio-political issues in ‘Gulaal’ and the film is not just about student politics.
"The film takes on the failure of system, how things don't work. Student politics is only a starting point in my film. It also has a love story," says Kashyap.
Kashyap's dream project, which was earlier being produced by Jhamu Sugandh, was stuck for over six years along with Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na and Johnny Gaddaar , two other movies of Sugandh. The film is finally being released on March 13 by Zee Motion Pictures.
‘Gulaal’ is about an erstwhile royal family in Rajasthan who wants to return to the days of royalty. It stars Kay Kay Menon , Raj Singh Chaudhary, Ayesha Mohan, Deepak Dobriyal and Mahi Gill .
