Filmmaker Anurag Kashyap’s Kennedy is scheduled for a midnight screening at the ongoing Cannes Film Festival 2023. Lead star Sunny Leone took to her social media account to share that the tickets for the screening of the film sold out ‘within minutes’.
Taking to her Instagram account, Sunny Leone posted a picture with Anurag Kashyap. “Our Film #Kennedy official tickets! Sold out in minutes…so proud!” she captioned the post.
Directed by Anurag Kashyap, Kennedy stars Rahul Bhat and Sunny Leone in the lead roles. Sunny arrived at the French Riviera earlier this week and posted several pictures from the Cannes Film Festival 2023.
In her first look, Sunny Leone looked gorgeous in a one-shoulder gown by Maria Kohkia. With subtle makeup and embellished heels, the actor looked radiant as ever.
In a recent interview, Anurag Kashyap revealed how Kennedy was written keeping a certain actor in mind. Talking to Film Companion, the filmmaker said, “I actually had a specific actor in mind when I wrote this film. Which is why the film is called Kennedy. Because that actor’s nickname is Kennedy. The film was called the Kennedy Project. It is Chiyaan Vikram. Chiyaan Vikram’s real name is Kennedy. I reached out to him. He never responded.”
Reacting to Anurag Kashyap’s statement, Chiyaan Vikram took to his Twitter account to reveal that he had indeed contacted the filmmaker. “Dear @anuragkashyap72 , Just revisiting our conversation from over a year ago for the sake of our friends and well wishers on social media,” the actor wrote in his tweet.
“When I heard from another actor that you had tried to reach me for this film & that you felt I hadn’t responded to you, I called you myself immediately and explained that I hadn’t gotten any mail or msg from you as the mail id that you had contacted me on was no longer active and my number had changed almost 2 years before that. As I said during that phone call, I’m very excited for your film Kennedy and even more so because it has my name. I wish you great times ahead. Lots of love Chiyaan Vikram aka Kennedy,” Vikram wrote on Twitter.
Anurag Kashyap responded by the same with a tweet and wrote, “Absolutely right Boss sir. For the information of people, when he found from another actor that I was trying to reach to him he called me directly and we realised that he had a different WhatsApp number. He gave me his correct information to reach out and even showed interest in reading the script but by then we were all locked and a month away from shooting.”
Anurag Kashyap further added, “He also graciously blessed us to use the name “Kennedy” for the film. What I stated in the interview was the story behind, how the film got to be called Kennedy. There is no need for any overreaction. And definitely I think neither Chiyaan sir or I am retiring without working together. FYI we go back to pre Sethu days.”
