- “He never… he rarely stands up to something, out of love or whatever reasons it is or out of awkwardness. But when he does, it really makes a difference but most often than not, he does not. But I know him really well inside out so I have a very special place for him in my heart,” Anurag Kashyap added.

Anurag Kashyap dubs Dabangg his life’s ‘largest tragedy’:
In an interview, Anurag Kashyap revealed that when he was making Gangs of Wasseypur, he had to use his brother Abhinav Kashyap’s name to get the locations since he had delivered a super hit with his debut directorial Dabangg.
- “In the beginning, it was very difficult because people didn’t understand (my films). I got confused because at one point, I remember somebody told me, ‘What are you doing?’ when they saw Black Friday,” Anurag Kashyap said.
- “They said, ‘It’s a little real, it’s fictional. It’s not a film, it’s hybrid.’ My parents would react like that, ‘Why can’t you make films like everybody else?’”
- His brother, Abhinav Kashyap, made his debut with Salman Khan’s Dabangg in 2010, which became a super hit. Anurag called the success of the cop-drama the “largest tragedy” of his life.
