Anurag Kashyap signs Manoj Bajpai for Gangs of Wasseypur

It's the re-unite season of sorts I guess. Ram Gopal Varma re-united with his long lost friend Vivek Oberoi after a gap of eight years to create Rakth Charitra. And if that's called a big coming together of lost mates, try this. Remember Bollywood's one of the most loved villain Bhikhu Mhatre? Well, the time for Anurag Kashyap to re-unite with his friend Manoj Bajpai is here. The eccentric director who gave birth to Manoj Bajpai's character in RGV's most talked about film Satya is planning to direct his most ambitious project till date, titled Gangs of Wasseypur.

Anurag Kashyap's adaptation, Gangs of Wasseypur, based on the coal mine mafia is all set to roll in a month's time. What's more shocking is the fact that Anurag is trying to create The Godfather on celluloid once again. So after RGV's Sarkar and Prakash Jha's Raajneeti, here is one more in the making which may well shock us with its treatment. That's the trait of Kashyap. He does magic in every film of his.

Manoj Bajpai quotes, "Yes, it is true that I have been recommended for Gangs of Wasseypur by Anurag. It's a pivotal role for me. I haven't read the final script yet but will in a few days from now. I am so thrilled that the same person who wrote Bhikhu Mhatre's role in Satya is not only writing my character in this film but is also directing it. We re-unite after twelve long years. That's quite something."

About the Godfather story in Gangs of Wasseypur, Manoj said, "There are talks that my role in the film is what Marlon Brando's was in The Godfather. As I said before, I haven't read anything yet but am eagerly waiting to read the script."

All said and done, but the question still asked by many from the industry is - When will Ram Gopal Varma re-unite with Manoj Bajpai? And will Sarkar 3 be made?

The answers to the above question remains a mystery.
