This has to be one of the most unique collaborations: Filmmakers Aanand L Rai and Anurag Kashyap have come together for a two-film deal under Rai’s banner Colour Yellow Productions. Anurag who has admired Rai’s last film Tanu Weds Manu Returns, will now direct two films for the producer. Interestingly, the first film will move away from Anurag’s  signature off-beat and edgy flavour and instead will be a small-town love story.

Sources reveal that the film will be shot in Bareilly , Varanasi and Lucknow and will go on floors in February next year. Adds the source, “Anurag will be directing a love story set in a small town and has been traveling extensively across Uttar Pradesh,scouting for locations. He finally zeroed in on Bareilly, Varanasi and Lucknow. The film is extremely close to Anurag’s heart since it reconnects him with his roots. The director hails from UP and  is happy to revisit the locations he fondly remembers. The cast is underway and they will start shooting in February next year.”

We look forward to this collaboration!
