And they all are thankful to Anurag Kashyap!

  • Nawazuddin Siddiqui- There is nothing much to write about the acting prowess of the man who at one point of his life also worked as a security guard to make his ends meet. Nawazuddin's career was truly shaped by Anurag Kashyap after he owned the role of Faisal Khan in Gangs of Wasseypur. Not many are aware of the fact that he was one of the 'Patna ke Presley' in the song ‘Emotional Atyachar’ from DevD. The talent was spotted much before when he was selected by Anurag for a short but powerful role in 'Black Friday'.

  • Gulshan Devaiah was much appreciated by critics for his performance in 'Hunterrrr' which showed him as a man suffering from satyriasis. But the man who actually brought him under the Bollywood spotlight was none other than Kashyap when he signed him for a powerful role in his English flick 'That Girl in Yellow Boots'. Gulshan has only been climbing the ladder of success since then.

  • Kalki Koechlin was once married to Anurag Kashyap, but the talent spotting took place before the marriage when Anurag signed her for the lead role in 'DevD'. With films like 'Yeh Jawani Hai Diwani' and 'Margarita with a Straw' she has only made an impression of a powerful actress of the industry.

  • Kay Kay Menon was the lead actor in Anurag Kashyap's 'Paanch' and that sums up everything. Anurag's debut film 'Paanch', is considered by many as the director's most accomplished work till date. Sad the film still remains unreleased. The performance of Kay Kay in 'Black Friday' made reviewers say that there could not have been a better actor to enact Rakesh Maria. Their third outing together in 'Gulaal' only left people asking for more of this combo.

  • Abhimanyu Singh was always on the fringes of Bollywood after having started with 'Aks' in 2001 but it was 'Gulaal' that changed the equation in his favour. His character of Ransa in 'Gulaal' left a lasting impression on cine-goers despite getting bumped off mid way in the film. Though Anurag and Abhimanyu are still to work together after 'Gulaal', Abhimanyu owes a big thanks to the maverick director.

  • The friendship of Anurag Kashyap and Tigmanshu Dhulia goes long back. The two had come to Mumbai around the same time and struggled together. It took a sheer genius like Anurag to see beyond Tigmanshu, the director. Anurag assigned him the most important character of his 'Gangs of Wasseypur' and what a performance it turned out to be. It was Anurag's gift to the film industry which is always and perpetually low on acting talents.

  • Aditya Srivastava- Among this lot it's been only Aditya Srivastava who despite having given a towering performance in 'Black Friday' was largely ignored by the industry. He came back again with an equally marvellous performance in 'Gulaal' but again no one took notice of him. Like Abhimanyu he too was on the fringes with small roles in films like 'Bandit Queen' and 'Dil Se' but he was noticed only post 'Black Friday'. Aditya made up for the lost opportunity and money with Sony TV's 'CID'.

  • 'DevD' hit theatres in 2009 and Mahie Gill made her entry in the industry in the year 2003 - the very statement sums up Mahie Gill's career in Bollywood. It took an Anurag Kashyap to get that acting streak out of Mahie Gill. Anurag gave her a second chance in 'Gulaal' and she did not disappoint. Mahie's Bollywood career is currently in doldrums, guess she will have to wait for another offer from Anurag.

  • Vineet Singh- The actor in Vineet Singh too was spotted by Kashyap. Despite being a novice with an experience of having worked in just one film, Kashyap showed his full faith in the actor from UP. The faith was repeated again in 'Bombay Talkies' when Anurag ensured that the Murabba was delivered and tasted by the superstar at the hands of Vineet Singh. Vineet's superlative performance in 'Ugly' sealed the fact that Anurag has awarded the industry another great performer.

  • The Indian Ocean band was always considered to be one of the best bands of the country but this image was confined only to the northern belt of the country as the band was Delhi based. But once they composed the songs for 'Black Friday' they became a household name and from the northern belt their reach extended to pan India.

  • Karan Johar- Anurag Kashyap's upcoming film 'Bombay Velvet' is scheduled to hit theatres this Friday and judging by reports, Karan Johar is a revelation in the film. Will Karan be the next person in queue to thank Anurag Kashyap? Amen.
