Anurag Basu’s upcoming movie has Abhishek Bachchan and Rajkummar Rao in the lead, the first look of which was recently shared.
It is a multi starrer project, a dark comedy anthology which centres on unvoidable jeopardies of life and has four different stories in a quintessential metro according to reports.
The movie is yet untitled and like his 2007 film, Life In A…Metro, this film too will have have intersecting stories at its core.
The film will be produced by Bhushan Kumar of T-Series. “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.
Apart from Abhishek Bachchan and Rajkummar Rao, Fatima Sana Shaikh, Aditya Roy Kapur, Sanya Malhotra and Pankaj Tripathi have also been signed for this project.
Anurag Basu has already shot major sequences with Abhishek in Mumbai and Kolkata last year, a statement release stated.
Basu was shooting with Rao and Shaikh in Bhopal recently. Details about the actors’ roles are still under wraps. More names are set to be part of the ensemble cast.
Kumar said he is looking forward to his first collaboration with the director.
“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 producer said.
Besides Kumar, Basu, Tani Somarita Basu and Krishan Kumar are also attached as co-producers. The film is set for a box office clash with Kareena Kapoor Khan and Akshay Kumar-starrer Good News.
The film is slated to release on September 6th.
