Anurag Kashyap drops the idea of boycotting National Awards ceremony

The Gangs Of Wasseypur director was angry as two of his team members were not invited for the presentation ceremony of the prestigious awards. But now, thankfully, the issue has been resolved

Anurag Kashyap is heaving a sigh of relief. The intelligent filmmaker was unhappy that despite winning the National Film Award for the critically acclaimed movie Gangs Of Wasseypur in the best sound recording category, only one member from the team of three technicians was invited for the presentation ceremony. Kashyap was all set to boycott the prestigious event if all three were not invited. But now the issue has been resolved and Kashyap has decided to participate in the awards ceremony.

Sound engineers Alok De, Sinoy Joseph and Shreejesh Nair were pronounced as the winners of the Best Audiography for Gangs of Wasseypur earlier in March. But only Alok De received an invitation to the 60th National Film Awards presentation ceremony, leaving the other two frustrated.

The ministry in its defense had maintained that only part one of the movie was selected for the honour, therefore, only Alok De, who worked on it, would be receiving the award. The GOW team then approached the Information and Broadcasting Ministry, and the Ministry has now declared that it is considering both the parts of the movie and the other two sound engineers have been invited to the awards function too.

We are glad to hear this…all’s well that ends well!
