Celebrated filmmaker Anurag Kashyap has recently announced that he will produce Bhojpuri films. His first film here will be Mukkebaz. This is the first time that a mainstream filmmaker of his stature will be venturing in Bhojwood. This has created euphoria of sorts in Bhojwood.
Kashyap says that it is sad that Bhojpuri films have no place in national awards, adding people complain that the Bhojpuri films do not have any standard.
“I do not claim that the scenario will change but I am very happy to be making my first Bhojpuri film,’’ he says.
