Zeishan to direct ‘Gangs of Wasseypur 3’?
New Delhi: Actor-scriptwriter Zeishan Quadri says director Anurag Kashyap wants him to helm the third movie in the “Gangs of Wasseypur” series.
Quadri, besides penning the story of the first two parts of the violent saga, had also played the role of ‘Definite’ in the second part of the series.
After watching “Meeruthiya Gangsters”, Zeishan’s directorial debut, Anurag was apparently impressed.
“He was overwhelmed and turned to me saying, ‘If you have a story, you must write and direct Gangs of Wasseypur 3. I want you to be the torch-bearer of Gangs of Wasseypur and take this ahead because I know that you can give full justice to it. After ‘Meeruthiya Gangsters’, you’ve won over my confidence,” Zeishan quotes Anurag as telling him.
The story of “Gangs of Wasseypur 3″ will be based on real life incidents similar to previous two parts.
According to Zeishan, right now he is concentrating on “Meeruthiya Gangsters” and after the film releases on September 18, he plans to start writing the story of GoW 3 immediately.
The film will release next year and therefore it will go on the floors this year, says Zeishan, adding the locations and the cast will be lined up very soon.
“Meeruthiya Gangsters” is about six friends from Meerut and their adventures and misadventures in the world of crime. Zeishan has also written the script and co-produced it along with Prashant Tiwari, Prateek Tiwari, Shoeb Ahmed and Priyankka Bassi.
The music of the film was launched recently. Team India player Suresh Raina and Pakistani singer Rahat Fateh Ali Khan are among those who have lent their voice in the film.
