Anurag Basu and Vikramaditya Motwane are set to guide a set of budding filmmakers as part of a new initiative.

They will mentor 15 fresh filmmakers, who will get to show a 10-minute short film each as part of Humara Movie Mentor Talent for Filmmaking, which is a section at the Wassup! Andheri festival.

Kashyap, who has made pathbreaking films like "Dev D", "Gulaal" and "Gangs Of Wasseypur", is indeed jealous of the talents who will get a chance through this initiative.

"Unfortunately, when we started off, we didn't have anybody to guide us. We wanted to make films, but we didn't get proper guidance. I used to wait for many hours to meet the directors and I had a real tough time. These kinds of initiatives will help these new breed of talents," Kashyap told reporters here Wednesday.

"I am so jealous that we didn't have this kind of stuff during our times," he added.

Agreeing with Kashyap, Motwane, who got his first big Bollywood break with "Udaan(2010)", said: "We had a bad time. Back then it was not easy to make a mark. I wish we had these kind of initiatives in our times. We will take these talents under our wings."

He said earlier it was very difficult to make a short film, but the situation has changed for good.

"Earlier it was so tough to make short film... to hire cameras was so expensive! But now one can shoot a short film even on a phone and get it edited. Things have changed, and for the better," said Motwane.

Wassup! Andheri is a four-day fest which will celebrate the socio-cultural spirit of the Mumbai. It will serve as a platform for different art forms like filmmaking, painting, photography, theatre, literature, fashion, culinary, music and dance.

It will begin here Feb 28.
