The show has been created by Sudip Sharma
While the teaser surely looks promising, it does not give away much details about the forthcoming series. Created by Sudip Sharma, the writer of critically acclaimed movies such as Anushka-starrer NH10 and Abhishek Chaubey's Udta Punjab, the show is said to be an investigative thriller with critical commentary on modern-day Indian society and politics. The series went into production in February last year.
The series stars Neeraj Kabi, Jaideep Ahlawat, Gul Panag
Reportedly, the new web series stars actors like Gul Panag, Jaideep Ahlawat, Abhishek Banerjee, Neeraj Kabi, and Bengali actor Swastika Mukherjee, among others. For the unversed, Anushka has previously produced movies such as NH10, Phillauri and Pari. She is also producing two upcoming Netflix original titles, viz. Bulbul and Mai. As an actor, Anushka was last seen in Aanand L Rai's Zero in 2018.
'I was on auto-pilot', Anushka on her break from films
Talking about her brief break from movies, Anushka earlier said, "I was on auto pilot, and it got exhausting. There was a period when I was shooting two films simultaneously. I made choices that weren't necessarily healthy." She added, "I needed to try other things, things that didn't fit into the schedule that I had found myself getting accustomed to for a long time."
