Sudhir Mishra will be directing one of the anthologies in the Anubhav Sinha-backed as-yet-untitled film based on COVID-19. But before that film goes on the floors, the two have joined hands for another feature film, which Mishra will direct and Sinha will produce under his banner of Benaras Mediaworks. 

As per the makers, the film, which is as yet untitled, will be a relationship drama shot on a lavish scale and will be an Indo-US co-production. 

A statement from the makers read, “It’s important for the world cinema communities to converge at this point. And Sinha along with Mishra is just attempting that. It’s the kind of script that needs an international look and feel. They need a global gaze on the story. The pre-production will begin after Diwali. The film has been locked over multiple meetings throughout the week. Polish, Korean, Japanese and Swedish talents are being reached out to by the production house. This will be their second venture together and will go on floors next year.” 

On getting Mishra on board, Sinha said in a statement, "As a producer, my hunt is always to find fresh ideas that push the envelope. Sudhir Bhai brings to each piece of cinema his distinct voice that makes the film so unique. I am extremely keen to start the project and we soon get into pre-production."

Calling Sinha one of the coolest producers Bollywood has, Mishra said, “I thought being his friend, I should exploit some of that opportunity I have at my disposal (laughs). We have a good story at hand. We are able to see that this is a novel idea and if told right, the film will get cinephiles from across the globe discussing it. I can’t wait to start the film."
