Tahira Kashyap is graduating from shorts to features. The director's first film, a yet-untitled slice-of-life drama will begin filming next year. The film will be co-produced by T-Series and Ellipsis Entertainment.

Ellipsis Entertainment's first two production were helmed by first-time filmmaker and they were keen to continue the trend with their next production.

Kashyap's short Toffee (2017) was about the friendship between two young girls, Tanya and Ritu in 1990s Jalandhar, Punjab. The semi-autobiographical short premiered last year at the Half Ticket: The Hand Of Friendship section at the 19th Mumbai Film Festival. She shared that she had been working on her script for a long time and was still waiting for the cast to fall into place.

Her proud husband, actor Ayushmann Khurrana, wrote, "From writing books, plays, directing theatre productions to making a feature film now. So proud of u".

The multi-talented Kashyap has written and directed for theatre in Chandigarh and Delhi, been a teacher of mass communications and journalism in Mumbai, and also headed the programming at a radio station in Punjab. She has also written three books titled, I Promise, Souled Out and Cracking the Code.
