Anubhav Sinha's social drama 'Bheed' books November 2022 release slot
Actors Bhumi Pednekar and Rajkummar Rao are all set to headline Anubhav Sinha's next, Bheed. The duo will be sharing screen space once again after their appearance in Badhaai Do which was released earlier this year. As for Sinha's upcoming film, Bheed will see its theatrical release on November 18, 2022. The announcement was made by the film's co-producer T-Series via Twitter on Thursday.
Why does this story matter?
- The upcoming film is co-produced by Sinha under his banner Benaras Media Works and Bhushan Kumar and his T-Series banner.
- It marks the duo's third collaboration after Thappad (2022) starring Taapsee Pannu and Anek (releasing on May 27) led by Ayushmann Khurrana.
- Bheed is touted to be a socio-political thriller, marking the first partnership between Sinha and Rao, so another poignant tale is expected.
