Anushka Sharma has not been on the big screen for a while now, and she won’t be seen in any film in 2020 either. Instead, the actress continues to be active as a producer.

Her production company Clean Slate Productions will now introduce lyricist-screenwriter Anvita Dutt Guptan as a director of a film titled Bulbul. Said to be a supernatural thriller set in Kolkata, Bulbul is a costly period film that Anushka is producing for Netflix.

 

A source that wishes to remain unnamed says Bulbul will star the talented Avinash Tiwary and Tripti Dimri. The pair was introduced in Sajid Ali’s experimental Laila Majnu, a revisionist take on the love legend in 2018. Both the actors impressed the discerning audience. Luckily for them, Anushka happened to be one of those who saw their talent.

So far, Netflix has not had  much luck with stand-alone feature films in Hindi, like the Karan Johar produced Drive and Ghost Stories. Perhaps Bulbul will turn the tide.
