The filmmakers also teased the storyline of their much-anticipated project, which is being dubbed as an edge-of-the-seat psychological drama, while announcing the release date via a video. The video begins with Kashyap excitedly saying "last year we did Lust Stories and we had so much fun".

To which, Karan added: "You all saw that and enjoyed, and we decided to go one step further. Something that has changed things for all of us."

Dibakar explains the premise of the project by saying "it is about things that are not really human".

Concluding on how the film has changed everything for him, Karan says, "I don't think I can ever look at big fat weddings the same way again."
