Anurag Kashyap is a one-of-a-kind filmmaker. In fact, he is someone who has always walked against the tide, got slammed by it, pushed, shoved around and yet managed to emerge victorious on the other side of it all. Looking at cinema from a different angle at a time when Bollywood couldn't go beyond a goody-two-shoes hero falling for a pristine heroine, he dared to show his protagonist dark and real. Resultant? His first film Paanch has still not released. But Kashyap managed to find a way to paint the 70 mm with his brand of cinema which is now world renowned. Kashyap has one other flair as well. Whatever little acting he had done, the director has left us in awe of his acting skills. Even in films where we missed spotting him, he did a good job. So on his birthday today, we decided to talk about his cameos. Anurag Kashyap, Alankrita Srivastava, Amyra Dastur Share Afghan Filmmaker Sahraa Karimi’s Plea For Help As Taliban Takeover The Country


Anurag Kashyap had shared a tweet on his Instagram page which has him playing the role of a cop in Gang. It was a cameo and he is unrecognisable in it. He claimed that he used to do such gigs for Rs 500. He shot for the film in 1994 but the film released in 2000. Paka: Anurag Kashyap Produced Malayalam Film to Premiere at the 46th Toronto Film Festival

Happy New Year

Who doesn't remember this repulsive cameo by the director? Farah Khan takes crass to an altogether different level.

Anurag Kashyap also appeared in Soundtrack. Perhaps thanks to all these cameos, Anurag Kashyap now gets author-backed roles in movies.
