Anubhav Sinha is known to shed light on socially relevant subjects through his cinema. Bheed, his next film post Article 15 and Thappad, promises to be a powerful commentary on modern society and is based on the backdrop of the 2020 India lockdown which interestingly also marks the third year of the first nationwide lockdown. The movie is scheduled to release on March 24, 2023, and is jointly produced by Bhushan Kumar and Anubhav Sinha with a power-packed cast starring Rajkummar Rao, Pankaj Kapur, Bhumi Pednekar, Dia Mirza, and Ashutosh Rana.
"Bheed is a film that reflects the complexities and contradictions of our times. Bheed is a story that sheds light on the social disparity that the country faced in the toughest of times. It was imperative for me to bring this story to life and share it with the audience," said director Anubhav.
