As per reports, Bhushan Kumar has collaborated with Anurag Basu on the director's upcoming romantic anthology of four narratives, to be also released on 6 September. This essentially means the feature will clash with Karan Johar's Good News

Speaking to Times of India, Basu said that it would be a dark comedy. The feature will also be Kumar's first collaboration with Basu.
