It wasn’t inherited by my father. What will they get crying like this?”

While the project is under scripting stage, the makers have bought the rights. They plan to start the pre-production soon. The movie will go on floors this year itself.

“Having portrayed several unconventional, challenging and bold characters, we were looking for a story idea for Swara that would match the performance potential of her previous films. Krishna Sen’s real life story is the perfect choice to portray a mysterious real-life character as well as bring a strangely true story to life on the big screen,” Ishan said.
