Anurag Basu, who wowed the audiences with his anthology, Life In A Metro, is making another slice-of-life multi-starrer, which will have intersecting stories about unavoidable jeopardies of life.
The film stars Abhishek Bachchan, Rajkummar Rao, Fatima Sana Shaikh, Aditya Roy Kapur, Sanya Malhotra and Pankaj Tripathi in the lead roles. Basu recently wrapped up Fatima and Rajkummar’s portions in Bhopal and now, he has got busy with the film’s Mumbai schedule with Sanya Malhotra and Aditya Roy Kapur.
Their story is a light-hearted take on love and will be shot in a 10-day schedule across various locations in Mumbai. Aditya will be seen sporting a new hairstyle for the film. Sanya, Aditya and Anurag attended several workshops before the shoot began.
Bhushan Kumar is producing the movie and talking about the collab, Anurag said,, “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 seem 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!”
Producer Bhushan Kumar stated, “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.”
Produced by Bhushan Kumar, Anurag Basu, Tani Somarita Basu and Krishan Kumar, the yet-untitled film releases on September 6, 2019.
