Turns out that Anurag had sent the award winning Hollywood director - maker of films like Casino, Goodfellas, The Aviator and the recent Hugo - some of his films to view. And Scorsese was impressed by them.
Here's an excerpt from Scorsese's letter: "I've been shooting my film for the past three months, but found the time to watch the pictures over the weekend. I thoroughly enjoyed Dev D and Gangs Of Wasseypur and found them exciting and inspiring! Maybe one day we'll be able to meet."
Now, how great is that?
