Produced by Shobha Kapoor and Ekta Kapoor’s Cult Movies (a new wing under Balaji Telefilm) and Sunir Kheterpal and Gaurav Bose of Athena, Dobaaraa is touted as a new-age thriller. It is the official Hindi adaptation of Oriol Paulo’s 2018 Spanish-language film Mirage. The film stars Taapsee Pannu and Pavail Gulati
During the BFI screening of the film, Anurag said: “I like to tell long stories, and I’ve worked on a lot of things, but we also have to deal with a kind of atmosphere where one is very limited in the kind of drama you can do. to do.”
He continued: “Right now we cannot do anything that is in the least political or religious. Those are big no’s. And big no, not because someone said you can’t do that, but because everyone lives in an atmosphere where they don’t know how anyone will react. At the moment we are very vulnerable, we are very easily offended. So for creators in India, it’s a great time to create long stories and new experimental stuff, but at the same time we’re walking a very thin line.”
Anurag started his career in Bollywood as co-writer of Ram Gopal Verma’s crime drama, Satya in 1998. Anurag broke through with Dev D in 2009. After that he made films like Gulaal, That Girl in Yellow Boots, Gangs of Wasseypur, Ugly, Bombay Velvet , Raman Raghav 2.0, Mukkabaaz and many more.
