Taapsee Pannu to lead Sudhir Mishra’s next anthology produced by Bhushan Kumar & Anubhav Sinha

Taapsee Pannu who worked with Sinha on the hard-hitting Thappad in 2020 and Mulk in 2018, returns to his banner Benaras Mediaworks with this film.

Anubhav Sinha recently announced that he has enlisted the help of renowned directors Sudhir Mishra and Hansal Mehta for a one-of-a-kind anthology film set against the backdrop of the pandemic. Sudhir Mishra’s short, which will star Taapsee Pannu, is one of the first stories to be locked under the project.

Bhushan Kumar’s T-Series and Sinha’s production business Benaras Mediaworks will produce the film. Following the recent announcement of Sudhir Mishra’s Afwaah, this is Sinha and Mishra’s second professional collaboration.

Taapsee Pannu who worked with Sinha on the hard-hitting Thappad in 2020 and Mulk in 2018, returns to his banner Benaras Mediaworks with this film. Reuniting with Sinha Taapsee says, “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.”

Anubhav Sinha adds, “The narrative is a layered one talking about human relationships against the pandemic serving as a backdrop. I am so glad to be reuniting with Taapsee for this one!” Praising Taapsee Pannu further, he adds, “She is perceptive and brings her own to every character she plays. She is the kind of actor who infuses her roles with a lived-in experience, making the story even more relatable. With Sudhir’s vision and Taapsee’s prowess, we have an assured film at hand. This film also brings me together with my long-time collaborator and co-producer Bhushan Kumar, who has always believed in my vision.”

Sudhir Mishra says, “This is a film about the idea of being young , about how one generation passes the baton to the next. Personally, this is one of those stories for me which leave an indelible mark on you and I couldn’t have asked for a better team to bring it to life with. Taapsee is easily one of the finest artists of today’s times. She has carved for herself a niche that comprises some path breaking films. Her spirit is what will elevate the film. With her, Anubhav and Bhushan Kumar, I have found collaborators who have the same ethos as me. It’s in such teams that one’s best work comes to the fore.”

Gulshan Kumar’s Tseries & Anubhav Sinha’s Benaras Mediaworks present the upcoming anthology, produced by Bhushan Kumar, Krishnan Kumar and Anubhav Sinha.
