Last year, Anurag Kashyap’s Kennedy received a 7 minute long standing ovation at the Cannes Film Festival.

Anurag Kashyap’s Kennedy, starring Sunny Leone and Rahul Bhat in the lead, has been creating a lot of buzz. Last year, the film received a 7-minute-long standing ovation at the Cannes Film Festival. Later, it was also screened at the Sydney Film Festival when it received a standing ovation from the audience. However, despite all the praise at the global level, the film has not been released in India yet.

In a recent interview with News18 Showsha, actor Abhilash Thapliyal, who also plays a key role in Kennedy, also talked about the film’s pending release in India. “There is just one person who can answer this, it is Anurag (Kashyap) sir. I am sure Kennedy will be out soon for the world, for the audiences to see. It is an amazing film. We took it to Cannes last year. It was a very proud moment for all of us. Having Anurag Kashyap as a director in your IMDb list is a big thing for any actor. I am lucky to have him as a director. I don’t know when will Kennedy be out but I hope it comes out soon and people get to see the Anurag Kashyap magic one more time,” he said.

Thapliyal, known for his hit series, Aspirants (2021), further talked about all the praises Kennedy received at Cannes 2023 and added, “I think every validation means a lot for me. As I always say, we actors work for either gaali or taali. Whenever you get a taali, it feels great. Primarily, when you go to Cannes, people there are filmmakers or critics, they understand the craft. When they watch and appreciate it, it always feels great. I go and ready every review of my film or web show.”

Written and directed by Anurag Kashyap, Kennedy has been produced by Zee Studios and Ranjan Singh Kabir & Ahuja of Good Bad Films. The film follows a sleep-deprived police officer on a quest for redemption amidst diverse situations.

Last year, Kennedy was also screened in India at the Jio MAMI Mumbai Film Festival.
