Director Anurag Kashyap has always been an eccentric man and his selection of movies has been far from conventional.
From a movie about supernatural events that makes a man quit smoking, to the alcohol and narcotics fueled rage of a broken heart, to the inside view of one of the biggest gang-wars in the history of our nation, Anurag Kashyap movies are on a tangent of their own.
Kashyap, who has always been a comic books fan, had previously expressed his interest in making a movie on ‘Doga’, an Indian superhero appearing in Raj Comics.
Whether or not that happens, is unclear at this moment, but what is clear that Anurag Kashyap is taking his love for comic books into the world of cinema by taking up Pran’s comic ‘Chacha Chaudhary’.
Chacha Chaudhary is an aged Indian man who is known to outwit villains with this intelligence. His brain is said to be faster than a computer, and he is accompanied by Sabu who is an alien from Jupiter. Sabu is a bald man who is 15 feet tall and has extraordinary strength.
Knowing Anurag Kashyap, this cheerful and lovable old man is unlikely to remain the same. Anurag Kashyap movies are traditionally dark and thus we can expect the same from this endeavor.
As of now, Raghuvir Yadav is expected to play the role Chacha Chadhary, seeing that he has already done so on the television series. The Great Khali has been roped in to play Sabu. Anurag Kashyap has further talked about trying to rope in Kay Kay Menon as the antagonist in the movie as he previously mentioned here. Actor Kay Kay Menon who has previously worked with Kashyap in ‘Gulaal’ and ‘Black Friday’ seems like an excellent choice for the negative role. The movie is expected to go on the floor around December.
