Filmmaker Anurag Kashyap has revealed that he is set to fulfil one of things on his bucket list—teach filmmaking. Anurag, who loves helping young people follow their passion, said that he will soon start mentoring young filmmakers in Kerala.
Anurag opened up about his future plans in a podcast with host Shubra Aiyappa on Flip the Script with Shubra. He said that he is going to teach in Kottayam in Kerala. The director also revealed an anecdote about his driver’s son, whom he helped pursue his creative ambitions.
“My driver came to me and said, ‘Mere bete ka kuch karo (Help my son out)’. My driver’s son is highly educated. He went to BITS. I called him over, asked, ‘Kya karna hai (What do you want to do)’? His interest was creative, so I started giving him graphic novels. I told my driver to leave his son to me. Now he’s so into graphic novels. He’s so into it, and he’s going in a different direction’: he said. The filmmaker added that he had access to these opportunities had wanted to share with people.
On the workfront, Anurag last directed Kennedy starring Sunny Leone and Rahul Bhat. The film premiered on ZEE5 in August. The filmmaker, known for his works like Gangs of Wasseypur, Dev D, Black Friday, That Girl in Yellow Boots, and Dobaara, recently opened up about his health scares and how he fell into a state of depression after streaming giant Netflix opted out of his adaptation of Maximum City. He revealed that he had two heart attacks during that time.
