Anurag Kashyap joins hands with singer Yo Yo Honey Singh for his album Satan!
The Gangs of Wasseypur director was so fascinated by the popular singer’s rebellious persona that he actually went on to produce a film for him
We could not believe our eyes when we saw filmmaker Anurag Kashyap sharing stage with popular singer Yo Yo Honey Singh at the launch party of the latter’s recently released album Satan. Kashyap is known for making intense films and hardly does he attend music concerts and shows which happen in the city quite regularly. So we were taken by surprise when we saw the Dev D director chatting away with Singh. But then, we quickly realised that Anurag actually produced the album (Satan) and he even went on to make a film with Yo Yo Honey Singh to promote the album.
The film is directed by David Zennie who had earlier directed the singer’s popular music video International Villager. And now Kashyap has produced the recent video that got nearly 300,000 hits in just one day.
We all know Kashyap’s penchant for dark cinema. Right from Black Friday to Dev D and from Gulal to Gangs Of Wasseypur, the intelligent filmmaker has explored the dark side of human psyche and life in general. No wonder then that he took a special interest in producing Honey Singh’s recent album which too has dark shades in it.
Looks like Kashyap and Singh have a lot of dark matter to share and the duo want to stimulate some grey cells with their ‘demonic’ creations!
