Acclaimed director Anurag Kashyap, who was admittedly a ‘chain-smoker’ for 25 years, has finally kicked the butt and the filmmaker took to his Instagram page to post about his achievement.
Sharing a picture of a plate of toast, sausages and eggs, Kashyap wrote, “40 days since I quit smoking… have started to eat like a pig and to counter that I swam a 100 lengths in 93 minutes in a 30 metre pool… And when I smoked, I ate less, was much fatter, and could swim equivalent of a km in 40 minute and only sometime push it to more than that. Now it’s easier to swim 90 mts every day. I can feel my breath, I don’t choke, I don’t cough all the time, I don’t wake up with a heavy head and its only forty days. But yes sometime the temptation to pick it back up does surface especially when everyone around us is smoking. Me, the chain-smoker for 25 years , the one who made No Smoking…is forced to admit that life is so much better without picking a cigarette.”
Anurag’s upcoming directorial venture is Manmarziyaan, which stars Abhishek Bachchan, Taapsee Pannu and Vicky Kaushal.
