Anurag Kashyap's films lack typical Bollywood song sequences and the writer-director says he loves music but does not understand their sudden appearance between scenes.
"I love music and I will never let go of it. I love songs, but the thing is that I can't let actors suddenly breaking into a song. So, I have figured out my own way to use music in the films we are working on," the 39-year-old said at a press conference.
Kashyap, known for his off-beat cinema like Black Friday, Gulaal, Dev D and Udaan, asserted that he never intended to make cult films but couldn't help that he did.
"I have unintentionally made cult films. I intended to make box-office hits. Cult films are made unintentionally, they become cult films because of the people. The director does not make a cult film," said the filmmaker who is working on Gangs of Wasseypur.
He stayed away from stars initially, but now he has teamed up with Rani Mukerji for his co-production Aiyaa and he is also co-producing Sonakshi Sinha and Ranveer Singh starrer Lootera.
While his thriller Ugly sees him working with Rahul Bhatt, Ronit Roy and Tejaswini Kolahpuri.
