Reema Sen, Piyush Mishra, Vineet Kumar Singh, Rajkummar Rao, Jaideep Ahlawat and Zeishan Quadri played supporting roles in the film.

In 2019, The Guardian listed Gangs of Wasseypur at the 59th spot on the list of 100 greatest movies of the 21st century. The film bagged numerous awards at several award functions, including Filmfare Awards, Asia-Pacific Film Festival, National Film Awards and IIFA. Gangs of Wasseypur was screened in its entirety (both parts back to back) at the 2012 Cannes Directors’ Fortnight, becoming the only Hindi-language films to achieve this feat. It was also screened at the Sundance Film Festival in January 2013.

Printed and circulated during the debut of the film in theaters (somewhere in 2012), this Gangs of Wasseypur movie poster was designed for publicity of the film but never ended up being used.
Lead actor Manoj Bajpai is seen in his element in this old Bollywood poster, with a sinister laugh on his face. He is seen holding a gun with an exploded barrel in his hand. A helmet clad biker is seen firing a gun in the distance of this Gangs of Wasseypur movie poster. Billowing smoke from a coal plant is seen in the background.
The poster seemingly draws a parallel between the industrial chimney and the exploded gun barrel, both spewing black fumes, suggesting in hidden connotations the deep rooted nexus of mafia in the coal mining industry.
Typography used in this Gangs of Wasseypur poster is entirely in English except for the word Wasseypur, which appears in Devanagari Hindi at the top. The release date of the film, 22 June is mentioned at the bottom of this Bollywood poster.
The soundtrack album of Gangs of Wasseypur was composed and co-written by Piyush Mishra along with Sneha Khanwalkar.

Songs like “Womaniya” and “Keh Ke Lunga” are remembered and played till today.
