Anurag Kashyap, Madhu Mantena, Vikas Bahl and Vikramaditya Motwane started a production company called Phantom Films in 2011. The company gave us some of the most spectacular and solid pieces of work and entertained the audiences to no extent. However, Kashyap announced on his Twitter timeline today morning that the company is shutting its shop as all good things come to an end. Have a look at what he wrote:-
Phantom was a dream, a glorious one and all dreams come to an end . We did our best and we succeeded and we failed. But i know for sure we will come out of this stronger, wiser and will continue to pursue our dreams our own individual ways. We wish each other the best.

Talking about the same, Motwane stated, “Vikas, Madhu, Anurag and I have decided to dissolve our partnership in Phantom and go our separate ways. It’s been the craziest, greatest journey and the most wonderful partnership of my life. My three partners have been my family through thick and thin and I can’t thank them enough for their love and support for the past seven years. I wish them nothing but the best on their individual journeys from here on and hope our paths will cross again in better times.”
Madhu Mantena too spoke about his experience of working with the company and stated, “We had a glorious run for seven years and I guess sometimes even marriages end. I personally believe that phantom is the best thing that happened to me in my producing career. I want to thank Anurag, Vikram and Vikas for being great partners, mentors and for holding my hand patiently through my dark times. Hope to continue to be friends and may be even collaborate on individual films in the future. I know we wish each other the best.”
Even though all the four filmmakers will now be working individually, we hope they continue to make the kind of films they have been making together!
