Anurag Kashyap loves flop films

MUMBAI: Filmmaker Anurag Kashyap, known for his offbeat movies, says he is perhaps the only person in movie business who loves flops.

"I love so many flop movies. I am probably the only person in the film industry who doesn’t like the mainstream box office hits," the 39-year-old said here at the first-ever Jameson Cult Film Club party hosted by him.

He is credited with making critically acclaimed movies "Gulaal", "Black Friday", "Shaitaan" and "Udaan".

A good film is not dependent on a big star cast, believes Kashyap, who added, "No, I don’t think you need big stars to make a good film, but yes, sometimes you need big stars to make box office blockbusters."

His last directorial venture was "That Girl in Yellow Boots" and he had cast his wife Kalki Koechlin in the lead role.

Kashyap is currently directing "Gangs Of Wasseypur" that has Manoj Bajpayee. He is also producing Rani Mukerji starrer "Aiyaa".
