5 INTERESTING UNKNOWN FACTS:

In his school days, Kashyap had great affections with the films but after schools, he changed his mind and wanted to become a scientist and thus took admission at Hans Raj College, the University of Delhi in a Zoology course and during his college days he again diverted towards films.

After completing graduation in 1993, he joined a street theatre group “Jana Natya Manch”.

He attended International Film Festival of India and saw 55 films in just 10 days and the film which inspired him the most was Vittorio De Sica’s Bicycle Thieves.

After De Sica’s effect, he left home with 5000 rs in the pocket and arrived in Mumbai in 1993 to pursue his dream.

His first job in Mumbai was at Prithvi Theatre, however, his first play was incomplete due to the director’s death.

5 FAMOUS QUOTES:

I do not make movies to send any message, but my treatment makes my viewers think on the subject.

Indian films have this obsession with hygienic clean spaces, even though the country`s not so clean. They`re either shot in the studios or shot in London, in America, in Switzerland - clean places. Everywhere except India.

Through movies, I have met nearly everyone I have wanted to, except Woody Allen.

Cinema is an art form.

The censor boards are mere redundant forces conspiring to keep the `bold` films out of reach of the audience.

5 MOST POPULAR DIALOGUES:

Laxmi samne se darshan dene ko tayaar hai ... aur aap joh hai line mein khade rehna chahte hai

Mera haal na gupta uncl ke jaise ho gaya hai. Gupta uncle ko na cancer ho gaya hai. unho ne kabhi sharab nai pi, cigarette nai pi, phir bhi cancer ho gaya. Isse accha toh pi lete.(Queen)

Sardar Khan naam hai hamara , bata dijiyega sako.( Gangs of Wasseypur)

CONTROVERSIES:

• In 2000, his directorial debut film "Paanch" fell into controversy for a violent portrayal of youths.

In 2007, his another film "Black Friday" became controversial for displaying the sensitive issue of 1993 Bombay Bomb Blasts.

He is often criticized by the media for promoting sex, drugs and abuses through his films.

Kashyap has always been at the anvil of Censor Board and the latest in the series is his 2016 flick "Udta Punjab" in which he was criticized by the board for portraying Punjab in a bad sense.
