It was a bizarrely unique experience shooting it during the pandemic, and with all kinds of restrictions. We hope the audience will appreciate this new effort!”
Talking about this anthology Tannishtha Chatterjee shares, “In such unprecedented times, new beginnings are the only hope for many across the world. It’s inspiring to join creative forces with 4 incredibly talented directors and collaborate with Amazon Prime Video, the writers Devika Bhagat and Ishita Moitra, producer Rangita Nandy and the actors to bring alive one such story out of many many stories of these really special times. Shot under lockdown rules it was both exciting and challenging to bring alive the story. I hope the viewers relate and connect with it the way we connected and felt while making it.”
