The film promises an uninhibited take on modern relationships. Director Shirsha Guha Thakurta said in a statement, “When I first heard this story, I was instantly attracted to its universe- honest, funny and so today. The actors have been a dream to work with. Their generosity is something I will always cherish. My producers (Applause and Ellipsis) have been extremely supportive and stood by me like a rock. Yes, I’m nervous, but this journey so far has been truly special.”
Producers Tanuj Garg, Atul Kasbekar and Swati Iyer, partners at Ellipsis Entertainment state, “The subject of love remains intriguing and debated. We were keen to tackle relationship fatigue by coming up with something that is dynamic, nuanced, relatable, uplifting and humorous, all in the same breath. This is probably the story of your life or definitely one that you’ve seen one or more of your friends go through.”
