The film starring Abhishek Bachchan, Rajkummar Rao, Fatima Sana Shaikh, Aditya Roy Kapur, Sanya Malhotra & Pankaj Tripathi is said to be about unavoidable jeopardies of life. Anurag has already shot major sequences with Abhishek in Mumbai and Kolkata last year. The director recently was busy shooting with Rajkummar and Fatima in Bhopal.
Speaking on the film, director Anurag Basu says, “It’s my pleasure to be working with Mr. Bhushan Kumar for my next that is a dark comic anthology. It’s our first collaboration but doesn’t seems like one. I am extremely happy to have found this talented new generation cast , though I will trust my old friend Pritam for music as always!”
The film has four different stories set in a quintessential Indian metro. It is a slice of life film with stories intersecting with each other with drama and emotion.
Producer Bhushan Kumar adds, “Anurag is a master storyteller and brings magic to celluloid in his films. I am happy we are working together. The characters, the story is so compelling yet the treatment is so amusing. We have tried to bring on board a terrific cast who perfectly fit the roles that are written. The way the script and shooting is in process, Anurag and I are already planning on doing another project. I am keen on doing more films with Anurag and his team.”
The signed actors will soon start for their respective portions while Bhushan Kumar and Anurag Basu are yet to sign few more actors to join the ensemble. The character and roles of the actors are still under wraps, but what is heard of is that every actor has a chance to explore something they haven’t tried before.
Produced by Bhushan Kumar, Anurag Basu, Tani Somarita Basu and Krishan Kumar, the film releases on 6th September 2019.
