    When it rains, it pours. And Anurag Kashyap is all set to reign over the prestigious Cannes film festival this May. His latest film as director, Gangs of Wasseypur, an epic tale of generational feud set against the backdrop of northern India’s coal-stained badlands, has been selected for the Directors’ Fortnight strand of the festival. The film stars Manoj Bajpayee and the new Irrfan, Nawazuddin Siddiqui. Anurag will also be thrilled that Peddlers, a film that’s a searing look at the new Mumbai of today, has been chosen for Cannes Critics Week. It is produced by Anurag’s company and is directed by Vasan Bala, who assisted him on Gulaal and Dev.D and was associate director on Michael Winterbottom’s Trishna. Up and comers Gulshan Deviah (Hate Story), Kriti Malhotra (Dhobi Ghat) and director-turned-actor Nishikant Kamat (404) star. Click here to read more
