Anurag Kashyap is one of the finest directors in Bollywood. He has created some exceptional movies, one of them being ‘Gangs of Wasseypur’ that was widely appreciated by critics and audience alike. Recently, ‘Gangs of Wasseypur’ has been listed by a UK daily newspaper, ‘The Guardian’, as one of the 100 Best Films of the 21st Century.

Anurag Kashyap’s film ‘Gangs of Wasseypur’ is the only Bollywood film to feature on the list as it occupies the 59th spot, leaving behind ‘Once Upon a Time in Hollywood’, ‘Call Me By Your Name’, ‘Persepolis’, ‘Waltz With Bashir’, ‘Capernaum’ and ‘The Dark Night’ as well that Anurag did not agree with at all. He thought that it should have been way at the top. The list was published yesterday.

The filmmaker took to his Instagram handle to share his thoughts. He wrote, “Guardian’s list of 100 best films of 21st century. Proud to be here but this wouldn’t be my list.”

He added that there are too many of his favourite films that don’t deserve to be below his film. He added, “So many films which are my favourites can’t be below my film.. and ‘The Dark Knight’ deserves to be way up. The number 1 film in the list I totally agree with. That’s my absolute favourite of the 21st century.”

Talking about ‘Gangs of Wasseypur’ he wrote, “P.S. this is also is that film of mine that totally destroyed my filmmaking life by the expectations it sets from me as a filmmaker and has been continuously so, and I have forever been trying to break away from it. Hopefully, someday that will happen.”

South Korea: South Korean pop star and actress Sulli was found dead at her home south of Seoul on Monday, police said.

The 25-year-old was found after her manager went to her home in Seongnam because she didn’t answer phone calls for hours, said Kim Seong-tae, an official from the Seongnam Sujeong Police Department.

Kim said that there were no signs of foul play and that police did not find a suicide note.

“The investigation is ongoing and we won’t make presumptions about the cause of death,” said Kim, adding that security camera footage at Sulli’s home showed no signs of an intrusion.

In a statement sent to reporters, SM Entertainment, Sulli’s agency, said her death was “very hard to believe and sorrowful.”

Sulli’s legal name is Choi Jin-ri. She began her singing career in 2009 as a member of the girl band “f(x)” and also acted in numerous television dramas and movies.

She was known for her feminist voice and outspokenness that was rare among female entertainers in deeply conservative South Korea. She recently appeared in a TV show and spoke out against online backlash she received over her lifestyle.
