After having directed the massively popular ‘Gangs of Wasseypur’, director Anurag Kashyap, and actor Zeishan Quadri, are all set to return with the third installment for the widely acclaimed film. At the recently held music launch for Quadri’s directorial debut, ‘Meeruthiya Gangsters’, the first time director was quoted saying that, “Now Anurag is after me to write ‘…Wasseypur 3’ and told me to direct it. So I’ve given it a thought and have started writing the script for ‘…Wasseypur 3’.”
Speaking about his mentor, Anurag Kashyap, Quadri added, “It’s great when your mentor appreciates your work. I am what I am today because of Anurag sir’s guidance and encouragement. And will start work on Gangs of Wasseypur 3, soon.”
Kashyap too was all praises for the first time director, and complimented Quadri’s zeal, and passion. “He’s eager to learn and keeps reinventing and discovering ideas. In spite of not having any cinematic education, Zeishan has lots of courage. He has an incredible drive, which is four times mine”, said Kashyap.
Interestingly, not only had the talented Zeishan played the diabolical role of ‘Definite’, he had also scripted the two previous installments of Wasseypur, while Anurag Kashyap had spun his directorial magic, to create a masterpiece.
The film is set in the states of Bihar and Jharkhand, and follows the twisted lives of the blood-thirsty goons who rule over the Wasseypur area. It takes a deep look into the politically fueled gang wars in an area that is torn by religious strife.
The script for the new Wasseypur installment is already in the works, and the film is all set for a 2016 release.
