Actor-director-producer Anurag Basu‘s next film starring Abhishek Bachchan, Rajkummar Rao, Aditya Roy Kapur, Pankaj Tripathi, Fatima Sana Shaikh, and Sanya Malhotra has now been titled Ludo. Presented by Gulshan Kumar’s T-Series in association with Anurag Basu Productions, the film is being bankrolled by Bhushan Kumar, Anurag Basu, Divya Khosla Kumar, Taani Somarita Basu and Krishan Kumar.
Last evening, a title poster comprising the characters of four different stories was released. Each story has been fit inside the letters L, U, D, and O while also adopting the colour tone of the tokens in the game. All the characters are found to be resting on their beds.

Set in the backdrop of a quintessential Indian metro, the story of Ludo centres on the unavoidable jeopardies of life and deals with it through four different stories. The director has shot major portions of the film with Bachchan in Mumbai and Kolkata in 2018 and for 15 days the following January with Fatima and Rajkummar Rao in Bhopal. A report in Mid Day said Fatima did not even see the script and accepted the offer once it came her way. “There are some directors whose worlds you simply wish to be part of,” she added.
The technical crew and other cast members are yet to be announced by the makers.
