If you are a cinemaniac then probably you need no introduction to the most critically acclaimed film maker of India Anurag Kashyap, whose contribution to Indian cinema is way too immense. His films not only travel within India narrating his art of film making but they make their way to the foreign soil as well, as the result of which the Government of France decided to award the ace director with ‘Ordre des Arts et des Lettres’ in the year 2013. Every single film of his breaks some sort of stereotypes that has been taking a stroll in the film industry for a long time.

The top quality story teller who has earned a unique fan base for himself through his films recently has spent some time with another quality film maker from the south film industry. It is the director of super star’s block buster films Kabali and Kaala, PA. Ranjith. Director Anurag Kashyap is very well known for his love for quality cinema and irrespective of his schedule he makes time to watch quality films from all languages.

Recently, both the film makers have met over a dinner date to have a healthy discussion over their filmography. Though, no official press release or reason for their sudden meet up was publicized, it is said that director Ranjith is also a big fan of Anurag Kashyap and since he is set to make is Bollywood debut later this year, taking this opportunity the South Indian film maker had expressed his desire to meet Anurag Kashyap to which Anurag is said to have agreed without any second thoughts. After their date the directors have exchanged some positive opinions about each other on their twitter handle.
Ranjith took to his twitter account and twitted, ‘I have been a big fan of your films. Happy to have spent this evening with you, I am glad that you liked Kaala.’ The director also thanked Anurag Kashyap for opting to have a conversation with him and also thanked him for the great food. In reply to Ranjith’s Tweet the Gangs of Wasseypur director has tweeted it was too late for him to see Kaala but after their conversation now he wants to watch all of his films.
On the work front, director Ranjith is gearing up to set foot on Bollywood this year by a film, said to be inspired by a Bengali novel Aranyer Adhikar penned by Author Mahasweta Devi.
