Kashyap's Gulaal to release after 5-yr delay

Mumbai: After a three-year-long wait, Anurag Kashyap's Black Friday finally hit theatres in February 2007, and now after a five year delay Kashyap's film on campus politics - Gulaal - will see the light of day, thanks to Zee Limelight.

And singing for the film are Anurag's old friends from Indian Ocean, who are happy that their friend's film is finally releasing!

Indian Ocean band member, Rahul Ram says, "I guess everyone's films gets stuck sometime, but Anurag has had a particularly bad run with films like Paanch and Black Friday not releasing. He was depressed."

Anurag's first release Black Friday had some chart topping tracks composed and sung by Indian Ocean, but for Gulaal, the band will only be lending their voices to a single track to music set by Piyush Mishra.

Indian Ocean band member, Asheem Chakravarty says, "It's a very theatre kind of music. The lyrics just follow one after the other."

Anurag Kashyap adds, "Gulaal is more Bob Dylan meets John Lennon kind of music."

But even now that his earlier films are finally being pulled out of the can, Anurag says he likes the 'jinxed' tag.

"I like tags. I like the tag 'enfant terrible'. As long as you don't call me normal I'm fine with anything," he jokes.

Once Gulaal hits theatres on March 13, everyone will be looking forward to the release of Anurag's debut film Paanch - which has yet to see the light of the day.
