2015 is a year Anurag Kashyap would like to forget as a director. Bombay Velvet, a period film on the Mumbai underworld, flopped. While NH 10, which was co-produced by Phantom Films, a company co-founded by him, was a hit, other productions, Shaandaar, Hunterr and Masaan, didn't do well though the latter won acclaim in the film festival circuit. Phantom's Udta Punjab and Ghoomketu are due to release in 2016.
Fast Fact: Kashyap's work inspired British director Danny Boyle in his film Slumdog Millionaire.
