Bollywood director Anurag Kashyap is not worried about getting an ‘A’ (adult) certificate for his film Gangs of Wasseypur, and says the film is not at all for children.

“The film has not gone to the censor board as yet. It is ‘A’ (adult) film and it will be an ‘A’ film only. But, of course, we want it to go without any cuts,” he said at the music launch for the film here Tuesday.

Directed and produced by Kashyap, the film stars Manoj Bajpai, Nawazuddin Siddiqi, Richa Chadda and Huma Qureshi in pivotal roles. The movie was recently screened at the Cannes International Film Festival.

Kashyap had accompanied his team to the festival and said that the best compliment he got was that his film would be liked by all.

“We got a lot of compliments but the best one was that everyone in the world will understand the film and everyone will like to watch it,” he said.

Even though the content of the film is for adults, Kashyap is not insecure about losing audience. “All films are not for kids. This film is not at all for children. Adult audiences will come to watch it for sure,” he added.

The music of the film has been composed by Sneha Khanwalker.

“We only had one thing in mind that the music should be like the film. People like the songs, so we have done the right thing. After a longtime ‘desi’ songs have come and that’s why people are liking it,” he said.
