Channel V has entered into an association with the cast and crew of Gangs of Wasseypur to deliver a spine chilling episode of ‘Gumrah’ this Sunday.


In the forthcoming episode, director Anurag Kashyap and the stars from his movie Gangs of Wasseypur – Manoj Bajpai and Richa Chadda will render crucial roles. Gangs of Wasseypur is a celluloid depiction of a revenge saga set against the socio-political dynamics in the land of coal and scraps trade mafia of Wasseypur.


Unlike regular tie-ups, wherein movie stars limit their screen time to only special appearances, Gumrah has the lead stars from the movie enact roles and give shape to the entire story. Sardar Khan ( Manoj Bajpai) and his wife (Richa Chadda) are set to play their characters from the movie and that has been skillfully interweaved with the episodic content, with a special voice over by Anurag Kashyap.


Speaking on the show’s association with the movie, Prem Kamath, Executive VP and GM, Channel [v] stated: “We are pleased to be associated with Anurag, Manoj Bajpai and the team for Gumrah. This association lends credibility to both sides unlike any other occasion. In this episode we have tried to synthesize the key narration of the movie and the fundamental objective of Gumrah – that is to simulate a thought amongst the new generation to realize and chose the right path of action.”


Anurag Kashyap, director and screenwriter, Gangs of Wasseypur said: “Gumrah is very closely knitted to the theme and story of Wasseypur. Based on the youth psyche, each story in Gumrah projects crowded emotions that often lead to unconceivable actions. GoW also deals with one such emotion namely revenge, which instigates human mind to take the path of crime.”
