MUMBAI: Stuck in the cans for almost a decade, Anurag
Kashyap's debut film Paanch will finally release
in January next year.
in the year 2000, the film was stuck with Censors for
long due to excessive violence, crude language, drug
abuse and sexual undertones. There was a long battle
fought and ultimately in 2002, it seemed that the film
would release, what with its music album also hitting
there was not much headway post that and it seemed that
the film was as much as forgotten for good.
the film has been revived and its marketing and promotional
plans are already in place. A date has almost been finalised
for its release.
Tutu Sharma, the film's producer, "Despite a delay,
I am not worried since Paanch is a timeless film
and not really bound to any particular era. Besides
this, I am not revealing anything for all my focus is
now on my latest vehicle Tera Kya Hoga Johnny."
