Anurag Basu Wants To Direct A Bengali Film Someday

Director Anurag Basu, who got appreciation and criticism in equal parts for the Chaplinesque love story Barfi!, admits to having a special connection with Bengal and claimed that he would direct a Bengali film someday.


In a recent interview, he revealed that his maternal grandmother's last wish was that he should make a Bengali film and he wishes to honour her wish by doing so. He further added that he even thinks in Bengali and that all the songs of Barfi! were first made in Bengali and then translated in Hindi.


Basu's next project is a biopic on the life of Kishore Kumar and Ranbir Kapoor is supposed to play the role of Kumar in the film.
