Basu is known for films such as Life... In a Metro, Barfi and Jagga Jasoos. His new film, also said to be in the vein of Life... In a Metro, features intersecting stories. “It is my pleasure to be working with 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,” Basu said in a statement.
