'Gangs Of Wasseypur II' Dhanbad Premiere Plans Runs In Cop Trouble
By MovieTalkies.com, 08 August 2012
Filmmaker Anurag Kashyap, who had planned to premiere his latest film Gangs Of Wasseypur II in Dhanbad, a small town in North India where the story is set, is a very disappointed man lately.
It seems that Kashyap's plans to conduct the premiere of the sequel to his gangland saga in Dhanbad has been shot down by the local police authorities. Confirming the news, Kashyap said, "Yes, the film was all set to be premeired and released in Dhanbad, Wassseypur this time, but due to some sensitive issues ,the police has not yet permitted for 'Wasseypur II' to be released in Dhanbad. This has in a way set me off because it was my dream to have a premiere of Part 2 in Wasseypur."
Incidentally, Kashyap was initially unable to screen the first part of the movie in Dhanbad either as locals were reportedly offended by some of the dialogues in the film, which showed the region in a negative light. However, he had been told that the Dhanbad locals had liked the movie and were looking forward to the sequel.
Gangs Of Wasseypur II, which releases today, revolves around the story of Faisal Khan, who is compelled to step up to the task of taking charge of the Dhanbad underworld after his father Sardar Khan (Manoj Bajpayee) is assassinated.
