Published: 15th September 2017

Filmmaker Anurag Kashyap missed the Asian premiere of his new film Mukkabaaz as it is going to be the opening film at the 19th Jio MAMI Mumbai Film Festival. But he says it's a choice he made and he is proud of it.

"Well, it is a moment of pride for me. I was very happy because my films have never played at MAMI," Anurag said at a press meet here on Thursday.

"To premiere at MAMI, I had to let go the Asian premiere at Busan (an international film festival in South Korea, one of the most significant in Asia). It's a choice I made."

Anurag was present here with MAMI Festival Director Anupama Chopra, Chairperson Kiran Rao, Creative Director Smriti Kiran among others.

Mukkabaaz will narrate the story of a boxer from Uttar Pradesh who falls in love with a Brahmin girl.
