MUMBAI: Stuck in the cans for almost a decade, Anurag Kashyap‘s debut film Paanch will finally release in January next year.
Made 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 the stands.
However, there was not much headway post that and it seemed that the film was as much as forgotten for good.
Now, the film has been revived and its marketing and promotional plans are already in place. A date has almost been finalised for its release.
Confirms 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."
