Anurag Kashyap started his career as a writer with a bang with Ramgopal Varma's SATYA. Since then even after turning director he is more acclaimed for his crazy writing work than direction what with films like NO SMOKING, DEV.D and of course the well acclaimed BLACK FRIDAY. He has also written dialogues for the films like NAYAK - THE REAL HERO and YUVA which were well applauded.
But now, Kashyap has decided to bid writing goodbye and concentrate only on direction.
Kashyap's present writing assignments on hand include - Goldie Behl's next, after DRONA, titled SHOR, Rensil D'Silva's JEHAAD starring Saif Ali Khan, Kareena Kapoor and Vivek Oberoi and film by Homi Adajania (of BEING CYRUS fame) which is a Saif Ali Khan production. And finally there is UTV's GURUDUTT which may see Aamir Khan playing the title role of the acclaimed actor-filmmaker. But once he is done with these he will not write anything unless for close buddy Vikramaditya Motwane if he turns director. Motwane was Kashyap's co-writer in films like DHAN DHANA DHAN GOAL and DEV.D.
Well, it is definitely going to be a major loss for Kashyap's writing fans as his each single film has succeeded in achieving cult status of its own.
