Mumbai, June 20: 'Gangs of Wasseypur' writer Zeishan Quadri had put a condition before director Anurag Kashyap that he would part with his story only if he gets to play a key role in the film that deals with the coal mafia.
Anurag agreed on one condition: Quadri had to appear for auditions. Eventually, he got through the auditions and bagged the role of 'Definit', a wily and street smart goon who imitates Salman Khan.
Quadri's journey from the country's coal capital of Dhanbad is no less interesting than a film script. His ''Hero banna hai'' aim took him to Mumbai in 2009 but after several auditions he got no break. Meanwhile, he began watching world cinema and got attracted to films like 'Men of Honor', 'City of God', 'No Man's Land' and 'No Country for Old Men'.
