Anurag Basu working on a dark comic anthology, to release on September 6

Anurag Basu is working on a multi-starrer dark comedy anthology that will hit the screens on September 6. Actors like Abhishek Bachchan and Rajkumar Rao will star in the film.

The currently untitled movie centers on unavoidable risks of life and has four different stories set in a quintessential Indian metro. It is a slice of life film with stories intersecting each other amid drama and emotion.

Anurag had shot major sequences with Abhishek in Mumbai and Kolkata in 2018. Presently, the director is shooting with Rajkumar Rao and Fatima Sana Shaikh in Bhopal. This film also features Aditya Roy Kapur, Sanya Malhotra, and Pankaj Tripathi. The film will be produced by Bhushan Kumar, Anurag, Tani Somarita Basu, and Krishan Kumar.

“It’s 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 seem like one,” Anurag said in a statement.

“I am extremely happy to have found this talented new generation cast, though I will trust my old friend Pritam for music as always,” he added.

“Anurag is a master storyteller and brings magic to celluloid in his films. I am happy we are working together. The characters, the story are so compelling yet the treatment is so amusing,” Bhushan Kumar said.

“We have tried to bring on board a terrific cast who perfectly fit the roles that are written. The way the script and shooting are in the process, Anurag and I are already planning on doing another project. I am keen on doing more films with Anurag and his team,” he added.
