Basu is known for films such as Life... In a Metro, Barfi and Jagga Jasoos. His new film, also said to be in the vein of Life... In a Metro, features intersecting stories. “It is 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 seems like one. I am extremely happy to have found this talented new generation cast, though I will trust my old friend Pritam for music as always,” Basu said in a statement.
The filmmaker hosts the puja annually. Katrina had also attended last year, when she wore white. Others spotted at the 2018 puja include Aditi Rao Hydari, Ragini Khanna, and Siddharth Roy Kapur.
