Let us tell you that the Emmy Awards are a prestigious award ceremony, in which the best work being done in the TV industry is appreciated. In this, getting the nomination means getting international recognition.
Anurag Kashyap directed parts of Sacred Games and Lust Stories. Sacred Games appeared on Netflix in 2018 and now its second season has been released this year. Sacred Games is the story of police officer Sartaj Singh (Saif Ali Khan) and gangster Ganesh Gaitonde (Nawazuddin Siddiqui). A few days ago, Anurag Kashyap’s Gangs of Wasseypur also got a big honor when The Guardian made it to the 100 Best Films. This is the only Indian film to be included in this list. Nawaz congratulated Anurag Kashyap on this achievement.
At the same time, Lust Stories also appeared on Netflix in 2018, which consists of four short stories, directed by Zoya Akhtar, Karan Johar, Dibakar Banerjee and Anurag Kashyap. Vicky Kaushal, Bhumi Pednekar, Kiara Advani and Radhika Apte played the main characters in it. A scene filmed on Kiara Advani was quite disputed.
According to the Emmy Awards website, 44 nominations have been included in 11 categories in 21 countries, including India. The winners will be announced in a black-tie ceremony on November 25 in New York.
