Cannes, May 23 (PTI) Indian filmmaker Anurag Kashyap's "Gangs of Wasseypur" is certainly making the right noises at the 65th Cannes Film Festival where the world premiere of the film received a full house.

Crowd linned up the streets to lend their support for Bollywood film, being screened at Director's Fortnight section, an independently-curated, non-competitive event that runs concurrently with the festival.

Actresses Huma Quereshi, Richa Chadda and Reema Sen, and music director Sneha Khanwalkar joined Kashyap and the male leads Manoj Bajpayee and Nawazuddin Siddiqui on the red carpet.

"Gangs Of Wasseypur", based on the coal mafia of Dhanbad in the east Indian state of Bihar, has been divided into two parts. The first part is set to hit the Indian theatres on June 22.

Vasan Bala directed "Peddlers", another film from Kashyap's production house, was also premiered at Cannes Tuesday evening. The film is competing at the International Critics Week.
