I’m a James Bond with double chin: Anurag Kashyap
Bollywood writer-director Anurag Kashyap, who debuts on TV as a host for a series of documentaries on popular Hollywood icons, says when he donned a tuxedo to get into the skin of British super spy James Bond, he was set apart from the sleuth by his “double-chin”.
“The documentaries are no less than movies and I dress up like the icon I talk about on the show whether it is James Bond or Indian Jones… when I dressed up in a tux impersonating the super spy, I actually felt like a James Bond with a double chin,” Kashyap told IANS.
Titled “True Stories”, the show will showcase real life inspirations behind movie icons like Al Capone, Frank Morris and Indiana Jones, apart from Bond.
It will premiere Thursday on Fox History & Entertainment channel.
