Anubhav Sinha and Taapsee Pannu's last collaboration, Thappad was widely accepted and now Sinha is set to produce another film with the actress in the lead. This one is going to be a short film directed by Sudhir Mishra. A while ago, it was announced that Anubhav Sinha's Benaras MediaWorks with Bhushan Kumar's T-series will produce an anthology film with pandemic as the backdrop, this is one of the first stories to be finalised with Taapsee in the lead.

Talking more about the film, Taapsee said,

“The story is unique and never done before, it’s a socio political drama that spans across two generations with the pandemic as the backdrop. I couldn’t be more thrilled to be working with a brilliant filmmaker like Sudhir Sir who is so solid with his craft. And mostly it feels like homecoming working again with Anubhav Sir and Bhushan Sir. Anubhav Sir knows how to channel the best in me. Being surrounded by masterful filmmakers like these is a blessed experience.”

Bhushan Kumar is absolutely excited to collaborate with Taapsee, Sinha and Mishra and here's what he has to say.

Bhushan Kumar shared,

“This film boasts of a dream team. Anubhav, Sudhir, Taapsee are ready to embark upon one of the most stirring stories I have read in recent times. I am so happy to have such prolific filmmakers on board to create this anthology. And we couldn’t have kickstarted on a more positive note. I am so excited to see the team take this story to the finish line. It’s a fine story and these artists are sure to whip it up into a marvelous movie.”

Sudhir Mishra on the other hand said that Taapsee is one of the finest artists today and her presence will definitely elevate the film. This definitely looks like an interesting team and I can't wait to see what they create.
