- Anurag Kashyap's Manmarziyan will begin in February
- He is currently awaiting the release of Mukkabaaz
- Abhishek Bachchan is not a part of Manmarziyan, Mr Kashyap clarified
He said, "There are a lot of rumours about it. Some 5,000 actors name have cropped up. We will make official announcement after January 13."
Talking about his wishes involving the cast, the winner of France's Ordre des Arts et des Lettres, Anurag Kashyap told IANS: "There are many things that goes through our mind and heart but often things don't happen as per our wish. I also thought that Bombay Velvet (featuring Karan Johar, Anushka Sharma and Ranbir Kapoor) will be successful," he added.
Mukkabaaz releasing on January 12 comes with the tagline 'Bahut Hua Samman', Mr Kashyap said, "People in our country are offended very easily. It is a behavioural flaw in our country."
He further added: "I think we can't grow because of it. A father always decides what his kid will be or what he will do when he grows up. And out of respect, the kid has to do it, without a question, killing his/her own dreams... That's what the tagline is about."
Mukkabaaz presented by Phantom Films and Colour Yellow Films, stars Vineet Kumar Singh, Zoya Hussain, Ravi Kishan and Jimmy Shergill. Anurag Kashyap is known for super hit films like Black Friday, Dev. D and Gulaal.
