The producer throws a…err…hen party for close friends to celebrate his upcoming production. But it was not ladies only!
Anurag Kashyap, although a dark and brooding filmmaker, can’t resist throwing impromptu parties! The maverick director, who has thrown an assortment of bashes closer to his film releases – including an iftaar party just before Gangs of Wasseypur released besides several other booze-soaked jamborees – is turning to the humble chicken this time.
In a bid to promote his upcoming production Love Shuv Tey Chicken Khurana, Anurag and wife Kalki Koechlin are hosting a chicken party. In attendance will be the producer-director’s favourite cast members from GoW, including Manoj Bajpayee and Nawazuddin Siddiqui, besides actors from his new film, Kunal Kapoor and Huma Qureshi, and the cast of his forthcoming film Bombay Velvet – Ranbir Kapoor and Anushka Sharma. And on the menu will be the infamous Chicken Khurana.
That’s all great, but we wonder if there will be any proper Punjabi cooking happening at the do. We do know that wifey Kalki is more of an actor than a cook! So the party goers may be a tad bit disappointed to find out that the Chicken Khurana that Mr K has promised them is actually ordered from the neighbourhood dhaba or takeaway, rather than being the authentic, finger-licking good home cooked fare, as has been claimed… Wink wink!
