After his acclaimed turn as Vinayakrao in the horror film Tumbbad (2018), actor-producer Sohum Shah has now signed on for director Reema Kagti’s next film, which is yet to be titled.

Shah shared the news on Instagram, posting a picture of himself with Kagti. The most interesting part of the photo was him holding the script of the movie like a prized possession. He captioned the image, 'And... a new journey starts today! With my new boss Reema Kagti. We’re working on something exciting! Can’t wait to share this one with you all.' 

Not many may know that Shah entered cinema with Ashu Trikha’s Baabarr (2009), in which he played the title role. Unfortunately, the film went unnoticed at the box office and the actor only got recognized with his next film, Anand Gandhi's Ship Of Theseus (2013), which he also produced.

His latest venture, before signing on for Kagti's project, was the web-series Bard Of Blood, produced by Shah Rukh Khan’s Red Chillies Entertainment.

The film will be Kagti’s fourth as a director after Honeymoon Travels Pvt Ltd (2007), Talaash (2012) and Gold (2018). She was one of the writers on Zoya Akhtar’s Gully Boy (2019), which not only earned critical and box office success in India but was also chosen to be India’s official entry for the Academy Awards. 

Last year, Kagti wrote and co-directed the web-series Made In Heaven in collaboration with Zoya Akhtar.
