Signature Start Up Masterclass is a celebration of the real life success stories and
provides a unique platform to passionate individuals who are looking for the right
inspiration and guidance by giving them an opportunity to hear their icons share the story
of how they managed to successfully convert their passion into paycheck.

During the Masterclass session Anurag shared snippets from his childhood and his
passion. Born in Varanasi, Anurag did his schooling from Gwalior and continued with BSc.
in Zoology from Delhi University. This was followed by many short stints, such as backing
off from his admission into the National Institute of Fashion Technology and the Short
Service Commission of the Army. In this indecisive phase of his life, Anurag
[ ] was exposed to the world of International cinema.
His love for cinema brought him to Mumbai in 1993 with a handful of money. In the
beginning, Kashyap lived in a different friend's house almost every day or sometimes in a
lodging house in Dadar station or in the nooks and crannies of Andheri, on the bad days.

Finally he got a job of writing for the show 'Superhit Muqabla', which followed more
writing deals. Eventually, he was able to produce his own film 'Paanch' in 2000, which
couldn't acquire distributors and is still not released. Recovering from that episode
Anurag finally produced his film 'Black Friday' in 2007, after suffering legal hassles for
two years. After the success of 'Black Friday', the industry started taking notice.

With back to back hits, 'DevD' in 2008 and 'Gulal' in 2009, he joined hands with
Guneet Monga to form Anurag Kashyap Films Pvt. Ltd. or as we now know it as Phantom
Productions. Anurag Kashyap has truly carved a niche for himself in the Indian film
industry and is known to give the Indian audience a deviant experience from regular
Bollywood releases.

The evening witnessed a remarkable turnout at The Humming Tree, who were looking for
inspiration to turn their passion into paycheck. Following the interactive session, the
audience was entertained by a live performance by the band - Lagori.

Signature Start Up Masterclass is headed to Chandigarh on 7th June, 2016 with Ankur
Tewari. Book your tickets on:
