Vicky Kaushal had to go to jail while filming Gangs of Wasseypur, reveals Anurag Kashyap

Filmmaker Anurag Kashyap recently joined The Kapil Sharma Show along with actors Manoj Bajpayee, Piyush Mishra and Pankaj Tripathi to celebrate the 10th anniversary of ‘Gangs of Wasseypur’. The gangster drama was released in two parts in 2012 and earned Anurag recognition as one of the country’s leading directors. He introduced the audience to many actors, who became stars.

Not only did it introduce many actors, but the film also showed the way to a future star behind the scenes. Vicky Kaushal was an assistant director on the film and Anurag narrated an anecdote of how Vicky had come to jail. When Piyush Mishra joked that he is shocked every time Anurag’s film crew members escape arrest, host Kapil Sharma asked what he meant by that.

Anurag explained in Hindi: “During Wasseypur, Vicky Kaushal went to jail once… We were filming without permission, and once we were filming illegal sand mining that the mafia was doing. And Vicky is caught. But ‘Haramkhor’ director Shlok Sharma outdid Vicky. She went to jail twice.

Shlok was working as a second unit director in Wasseypur, and Anurag had revealed in an interview with PTI in 2017: “In Wasseypur, he went to jail twice. He wanted to take so many shots of the tracks that he put cameras on the bridge. After that, he went to jail for it and if he had had a camera there, he would have shot there too.”

Vicky Kaushal played the lead role in ‘Masaan’, directed by Neeraj Ghaywan. She also acted in ‘Raman Raghav 2.0’, ‘Manmarziyaan’, both directed by Anurag. She will be seen in a cameo in the filmmaker’s latest film, Almost Love with DJ Mohabbat.
