On the other hand, Vignesh Shivan added :
“As a filmmaker, being able to tell your story to a diverse audience, alongside three respected directors who believe in your story as much as you do, is an incredible opportunity. This film explores the dark, often agonizing side of human relationships, tabling thoughts many have but are afraid to vocalize.”
It is not the first time that Netflix is creating an anthology film. Earlier, Bollywood directors, Karan Johar, Anurag Kashyap, Zoya Akhtar, and Dibakar Banerjee had come together to make the films, Lust Stories (2018) and Ghost Stories (2020).
