The Gangs of Wasseypur has released and also won tremendous acclaim from critics and aficionados of cinema. Anurag Kashyap clarified that the budget of the first part was Rs 9.2 crores and the film collected Rs 10.4 crores in the first three days.
It is reported that Viacom18 and Anurag Kashyap decided to have a different strategy vis-a-vis the release of the two parts in India and Overseas.
While the first part has just opened in India, it hasn’t released in Overseas yet. That’s because the film will be released in phases in the international arena — not just in theatres patronized by the diaspora, but also those who’d love to watch an Indian film. It means, the film will have a mainstream release overseas, starting with Middle East on 28 June, followed by France on 25 July.
As for the release of its second part in India, well, Viacom18 and Anurag Kashyap are expected to take a call in the next few days but in all likelihood, Gangs Of Wasseypur 2 will hit the screens in October.
