Anurag Kashyap Praises Beygairat Brigade

November 3, 2011

Critically acclaimed Indian film director and screenwriter Anurag Kashyap, who is known for films like Black Friday, No Smoking, Dev D and That Girl in Yellow Boots, praises the Lahore-based political rock band Beygairat Brigade.

The band members confessed to TOI that they are ‘hardcore’ RD Burman fans and Anurag Kashyap admirers. In an interview with the TOI, the band admired Kashyap by saying “Please tell him if he ever makes Dev D again, we’ll mortgage everything to come and be a part of his film in any way.

Hearing such remarks by the Beygairat Brigade, Kashyap’s fans tweeted to him about the band and asked him to give these young guys a listen. Kashyap requested his twitter followers to send him the link to the newly viral political song. On hearing the track, Kashyap tweeted,

Beghariyat Brigade’s video is awesome.. the guys are awesome..

Not just that, he then shared the track with all his followers, which are a little over 27,000 in number. He also personally tweeted to Ali Aftab, the vocalist for Beygairat Brigade, asking if he can hear more of them.

As I see it, this hints a potential deal. Beygairat Brigade could be next hitting Bollywood.
