Making the announcement on social media, Apurva wrote: “Pleased to announce my solo directorial debut, co-produced by and starring my Satya and Aligarh star, Manoj Bajpayee. “Our script traces the emotional journey of a forgotten genius who is slowly losing his mind. Since awareness and support for mental health issues is sharply lacking in India, we chose the ‘Mental Health Awareness Month’ to make the announcement.”
