Director Anurag Kashyap has landed in trouble quite often while shooting for his gangland epic Gangs Of Wasseypur, but this incident takes the cake for sure! It seems that Kashyap, who was shooting a sequence for Gangs Of Wasseypur II near a mosque in suburban Goregaon, was arrested by the police for a short time after suspicious locals reported his activities to the police.
Sources claim that as Kashyap wanted to capture the actual mood of the area, he did not take prior police permission for the shooting and instructed his team to shoot the area with hidden cameras to capture the ambience of the region. However, some locals saw these furitive movements and suspecting something fishy, informed the police, who promptly landed on the scene and hauled away Kashyap and his cameraman. Confirming the news, Kashyap said that after clearing the situation with the cops and completing the necessary paperwork, Kashyap and his cameraman were allowed to go and shoot the film.
Gangs Of Wasseypur II deals with the story of Faisal Khan (Nawazuddin Siddiqui), who rises to power to control the Dhanbad mafia after his father Sardar Khan (Manoj Bajpayee) is assassinated by rivals.
