Talking about the film, producer Shailesh R. Singh said in a statement, “It’s a young, restless love story from the 90s. People in 1990s were innocent and vulnerable. They didn’t have the advantage of technology the way youngsters have now. There was a deep desire to fight for your cause and claim your right. Sunny, Nushrat and Vijay fit in quite naturally. Sunny and Nushrat play students coming from different ideologies and backgrounds, but a couple destined to be together. They play childhood lovers who have grown up together. Both Sunny and Nushrat bring innocent and palpable energy, naturally into the story.”

Hurdang is scheduled to hit the shooting floor on 1st July 2019. It will be directed by Nikhil Nagesh Bhatt, who describes his film as a hard-hitting drama that will surely hit the right chord with the audience.

The film is expected to buzz into theatres in the first half of 2020.
