Director Anurag Kashyap Discusses Tollywood and the Tamil film, Paradesi

, 15 Mar 2013

We caught up with Anurag Kashyap at the special screening of Paradesi and here’s what he told us about the film:

“Paradesi is set in a time much before Indian Independence in a village down South where British agents used to pick up hoards of villagers to work on tea estates. This film is based on one once such village where its people are taken to work on a tea estate. It’s a love story about a boy who goes to earn some money so that he can marry the woman he loves in the village. It’s also about the tea estates in those times. It’s based on a book called Red Tea.”
