Bollywood Hungama OTT India Fest Day 2: Jaideep Ahlawat recalls shooting Gangs Of Wasseypur under tight budget: “We had to eat street food to fill our stomachs because we didn’t know if we would get lunch”
During the same, Jaideep Ahlawat revisited the sets of the cult-classic film, Gangs of Wasseypur. When asked to share an anecdote, Jaideep recalled, “During Wasseypur, I am sure there was no budget, no money, or it was not spent. We were staying in a lodge in Varanasi. It has nothing to do with the sets. Varanasi’s street food is very famous. So, everyone had to eat that food to their fill because we did not know if we would get lunch.”
He added, “You see the passion on those sets where everyone goes out of their comfort zone and conquers the challenging phases. There was a train sequence we were shooting in Rewari. We had only one night. In between, there was a train that passed twice. It had horses and stuff. So, everybody, the cast, and production manager, including Anurag Kashyap, used to lift the boxes. Then you see the result.”
