Anurag Kashyap had said that the script of Gangs of Wasseypur was so extensive that it’s not even known how long the story became. The script he wrote accounted for three parts of the film.
The length of the film stretched to over seven hours. The film’s producer was Vikramaditya Motwane, who decided to split it into two parts. Anurag mentioned that there were some dialogues in the film that weren’t in the script.
Anurag Kashyap Thought the Film Would Be in Three Parts Anurag Kashyap mentioned in Cyrus Broacha’s caption – the story of my film just kept going. It felt like the film would go into three parts. However, Vikram came in and worked on its length, resulting in it being made into two parts. What I had written the story for had a runtime of over seven hours.
Actors Spoke Dialogues That Were Different from the Script Anurag Kashyap said that in Gangs of Wasseypur, there were several dialogues that were improvised. They weren’t in the script. One of the film’s famous dialogues, ‘Tumse Na Ho Adarsh’ (You don’t have principles), was also not in the script. Tigmanshu Dhulia delivered this line on the spot.
Tigmanshu Dhulia played a role in the film, despite being primarily a film producer. He improvised his performance in this film.
Anurag Kashyap Gave Actors Freedom Anurag Kashyap said, “Tigmanshu Dhasiya said that we have gone mad, we are laughing hysterically. I gave my actors complete freedom, like do whatever you want with the dialogues. I didn’t tell them what not to do; I just didn’t tell them what to do. I think the script is merely a password.”
