Anurag Kashyap is presently enjoying his time in lockdown after finishing work on his latest film Choked: Paisa Bolta Hai. The filmmaker recently recalled the time he met Shah Rukh Khan due to an abrupt reason. Speaking to Mid Day Anurag Kashyap revealed that Shah Rukh Khan used to be his senior back when both of them used to go to Hansraj College in New Delhi. Kashyap revealed that at some point when he was in Mumbai he got really hungry and randomly went to Shah Rukh Khan's iconic home Mannat.
The Gangs of Wasseypur director said, "I was hungry and I walked into his house, using our college connection. I remember him feeding me. He only knew how to make an omelette."
"He is my senior from university, he has been there like a big brother helping me. Shah Rukh is super successful. When he loves you, he approaches things like, in my struggling years, (he used to tell me), 'If you do what I tell you to do, your problems will disappear'. But I didn't want him to make my life, I love him to death, " he added.
Previously Anurag Kashyap has also revealed that there was once a time when he collaborated with Shah Rukh Khan. He said, "Shah Rukh Khan wanted to do No Smoking, he was very upset when I went away from him. I also went to him with Allwyn Kalicharan. I wanted to do that with him and a big superstar from Hollywood. Everything was almost done but then again (it didn't happen)."
Anurag Kashyap is also set to appear alongside Nawazuddin Siddiqui in the digital film Ghoomketu..
