Filmmaker Anurag Kashyap says when Gangs Of Wasseypur released on this day seven years ago, his life got “ruined”. June 22, 2012 was when the first instalment of the two-part Gangs of Wasseypur released. It is a cult film that revolves around a gangster who clashes with a ruthless, coal-mining kingpin.

“Seven years back is exactly when my life got ruined. Since then all everyone wants me to do is the same thing over and over again. Whereas I have only been unsuccessfully trying to get away from that expectation. Anyways hope that Saadhe Saati is over by the end of 2019,” Kashyap tweeted on Saturday.
