“Having a production house like Yoodlee Films to come onboard and back this project gives me confidence in their commitment to create meaningful cinema ? cinema which is at once relevant and unique in content,” Behl said in a statement.

Siddharth Anand Kumar, Producer Yoodlee Films and VP, Films and TV Saregama India, said the new project reiterates the company’s commitment to create quality cinema.

“The fact that we have a talent like Kanu Behl is in charge of bringing this riveting story to screen makes this an exciting proposition to look out for all cine-goers,” he added.
