Interestingly, Sampada Hulivana, who plays the heroine will appear as a ghost in the film, revealed Anissh, and mentions that the film is also a horror-comedy. “The director has brought in all those commercial bits that require to elevate a hero. The film also explores brother-sister sentiment. Another highlight is that I date a ghost in the film,” he says.
Anissh and the team are now getting ready with the film’s teaser, which will be unveiled soon. “Owing to COVID lockdowns, which have more or less become like our summer and mid-term holidays, we as a team decided that it is best to talk about this project once we complete shooting, and it has worked. This will be the strategy that I would want to follow for the rest of my films as well,” he says.
