The film was earlier supposed to hit theatres on 13 March. The story of Ludo centres on unavoidable jeopardies of life and has four different stories set in a quintessential Indian metro. Akin to Basu's hit 2007 film, Life In A... Metro, the slice-of-life film will have intersecting stories at its core. The director shot major portions of the film with Bachchan in Mumbai and Kolkata in 2018.

The Manmarziyaan actor also shared a few stills from the set on his Instagram. He also shot with Shaikh and Rao in Bhopal over a 15-day schedule in January. Out of the four short features in the film, Shaikh, will feature as the female lead in one, opposite Rajkummar Rao. She had told Mid Day that she was so excited to hear that Basu was developing the film and had Shaikh in mind, that she did not care about the script when the offer came her way. "There are some directors whose worlds you simply wish to be part of," added the Dangal star.
