I can’t make a film if I can’t make it my own: Anurag Kashyap

New Delhi, Aug 3 (FN Agency) As soon as the trailer of Ektaa R Kapoor’s & Anurag Kashyap’s new-age thriller ‘Dobaaraa’ was released, it introduced a unique story that the audience has never seen before. From its concept of time travel to having Anurag Kashyap trying his hand for the first time in this genre, the film guarantees a lot of factors for the audience to watch out for. ‘Dobaaraa’ as a mystery thriller is eventually a very special film in Kashyap’s career, as the film will be the first remake of his directorial journey. Having given some brilliant stories to the audience, Anurag has always worked on original scripts in his career, and coming up with such an intriguing remake script, it would be exciting to see how Anurag will add his expertise to this unique mystery thriller. “I never wanted to remake any film in my life. Taapsee has reached out to me and asked me to find her a director for this script. Without reading the script I tried finding a director but when I read the script I could not stop myself making it my own. Then I decided to direct it myself,” Anurag said in a statement.

“I can’t make a film if I can’t make it my own. Essence of storyline is obviously taken from that film but the narration is completely from the point of view of our audiences whom we will be talking to through the screen,” he added. Anurag has given some of the most promising thriller movies like Gangs of Wasseypur, Ugly, Raman Raghav 2.0, and more, which speaks a lot about his choice as a filmmaker to explore different kinds of thrillers on the screen. Other than this, ‘Dobaaraa’ will also be Anurag’s first attempt to get into the ‘time travel’ genre. While the director has worked on some really amazing thriller stories in his career, it is one of its kind time travel thriller that the director will bring up for the audience. Starring Taapsee Pannu, the film is directed by Anurag Kashyap and produced by Shobha Kapoor & Ektaa R Kapoor’s Cult Movies, a new wing under Balaji Telefilms and Sunir Kheterpal & Gaurav Bose (Athena). It will release on August 19.
