Filmmaker Anurag Kashyap says he might have not made movies like Dev D and Gangs Of Wasseypur if it hadn't been for Mahesh Bhatt.

Kashyap, 40, had given up on becoming part of Bollywood and decided to quit, but Bhatt gave him money for his expenses and encouraged him to continue his work. "It was director Mahesh Bhatt who dragged me back in the film industry when I had given up on everything and left. Even after coming back, I worked for six months and tried to quit," said Kashyap whose film, Friday, got him recognition as a director.

"Despite all this, when I was leaving, Mahesh Bhatt stopped me from going. I didn't have money and he gave me Rs. 10,000 for my expenses. I had a lot of self-respect and ego, but no money. All this was before the success of the film Satya," added the filmmaker who co-scripted Satya.

Kashyap will be seen sharing much more about his experiences in the film industry on a television show, Ye Hai Meri Kahaani.

The show will be aired May 12.
