He may be getting death threats for unmasking the real face of coal mafia in his native town Wasseypur in Anurag Kashyap’s Gangs of Wasseypur (GOW), but the film’s debutant writer-actor Zeishan Quadri is unperturbed.
“I received a call on June 10. The person told me that I’ve brought shame upon Wasseypur by unmasking everything about its gangs, black money, corruption and politics and telling everyone about it through the film,” said Quadri, a Mumbai resident now.
“He even said that I might receive an extortion call soon and I’ll never return (alive) from Wasseypur if I ever visit my hometown. But I’m not afraid of anyone but God. I am not even taking it seriously,” said the 28-year-old, who roamed freely about Connaught Place and came over to HT House on Friday for this interview.
Asked if he has sought police protection, he said, “No. as I said, I’m not afraid.”
