Netflix has announced the release date of its next anthology project, Ajeeb Daastaans, with another intriguing teaser.
Introduced by Karan Johar, the anthology comprises shorts helmed by Kayoze Irani, Neeraj Ghaywan, Shashank Khaitan and Raj Mehta, which deal with the complexities and faultlines in human relationships.
The series will be released on Netflix on 16 April.
Johar introduced the teaser on social media, by announcing it as a "collaborative effort, yet uniquely individual".
It’s here... A collaborative effort, yet uniquely individual. Presenting #AjeebDaastaans with 4 exceptionally talented #DirectorsOfDharma, coming together to weave 4 individual stories that are stranger than reality itself. pic.twitter.com/GMIaJc0QPp— Karan Johar (@karanjohar) March 19, 2021
The teaser is an intriguing montage that captures the various relationships that will define each story. The film features a stellar cast, which includes Konkona Sensharma, Manav Kaul, Jaideep Ahlawat, Tota Roy Chowdhury, Nushratt Bharuccha, Abhishek Bannerjee, Shefali Shah, and Fatima Sana Shaikh. The teaser doesn't reveal much — Bharucchha is seen in a very deglamorized role as mother to little Inayat, Shefali Shah's histrionic character and Aditi Rao Hydari and Sensharma's friendship have also been revealed.
A statement from Netflix said the anthology would showcase four diverse stories exploring human flaws and emotions like jealousy, entitlement, prejudices, and toxicity, which are often entangled at the heart of a relationship. "The film raises questions that will leave you with a dilemma between what's right and what's wrong as the lines get blurred," the statement read.
The anthology has been produced by Dharmatic Entertainment, the digital wing of Dharma Productions.
