The Story Behind The Title Of Anurag Basu’s Film ‘Ludo’; Know The Release Date
Mumbai: Bollywood filmmaker Anurag Basu, who is known for the quirky titles of his films, recently shared the story behind naming his upcoming film as ‘Ludo’.
Anurag told IANS, “Throughout my last film ‘Jagga Jasoos’, we would play ludo on the set. Actually, not just on the set but even during long drives, the game of ludo never ended. This film is a story of four different journeys coming together, so the name ‘Ludo’ fell in place.”
The filmmaker went on to say that he had four to five scripts in hand, and it was quite difficult for him to choose a story from among them.
However, his wife Tani and music composer Pritam helped him in picking the right script.
“Before we started ‘Ludo’, I had four to five scripts ready and I had to make the difficult choice of which one to go ahead with. Tani (his wife) and (composer) Pritam da pushed me towards this script and that’s how it came together,” said the filmmaker.
‘Ludo’ stars Abhishek Bachchan, Aditya Roy Kapur, Rajkummar Rao, Sanya Malhotra, Fatima Sana Shaikh, Rohit Saraf, Pearle Maaney, Pankaj Tripathi, Asha Negi, Shalini Vats and Inayat Verma. It is scheduled to release on November 12 on Netflix.
