Anurag Basu


After Jagga Jasoos (2017), acclaimed filmmaker Anurag Basu took a short break from filmmaking and explored reality television by co-judging Super Dancer on Sony Entertainment Television.

He returned to call the shots recently when he started working on a film, which is believed to be a sequel to his 2007 blockbuster, Life In A Metro. Though the film still remains untitled, the producers have announced its official release date.

Starring an ensemble star cast that includes the likes of Abhishek Bachchan, Aditya Roy Kapur, Rajkummar Rao, Fatima Sana Shaikh, Sanya Malhotra and Pankaj Tripathi, the yet-to-be-titled film will make its entry into theatres on 24th January 2020.

The film mounted the floor in Kolkata a couple of months ago. Abhishek Bachchan, who has never worked with Anurag Basu before, was the first one to start shooting for the movie. The second schedule of the movie was shot in Bhopal with Rajkummar Rao and Fatima Sana Shaikh.

The untitled film, which will reportedly tell four different stories intersecting each other, is being bankrolled by Bhushan Kumar, Anurag Basu, Tani Basu and Krishan Kumar.

After completing this film, Anurag Basu will next helm a movie called Imali. When the project was announced, Kangana Ranaut and Rajkummar Rao were confirmed to play the lead couple in it. However, Ranaut quit the film to focus on her next directorial venture.
