His new film Ludo, an anthology drama, on OTT platform a few months back and will make its television premiere soon. Anurag Basu Reveals How His Upcoming Film Ludo Got Its Title.

“A lot of filmmakers have explored bigger and bolder subjects on the big screen as well. My film Ludo dealt with many bold subjects and was initially planned for the big screen,” he added. Basu, who made films such as Barfi! (2012), Life In A Metro (2007) and Gangster (2006), is confident now that theatres have reopened after lockdown, the audience will pour in like the good old days.

“Cinema is a community watching experience. I am certain that audiences will come back to theatres when they will be back in action completely. We just need one film that will create enough buzz for the audience to rush back to theatres. This has already started in the South, with the release of the Vijay-starrer Master, and soon will be seen in Bollywood too. One big release and things will change,” he said.

The filmmaker came back to direction with Ludo after a break of three years but he doesn’t sense a gap.”As a filmmaker, I didn’t miss filmmaking and directing for the big screen. Thankfully, the TV reality show Super Dancer and the film Ludo happened at the same time. I had finished shooting for Ludo when we were shooting for Super Dancer. So, I never felt I was away from the big-screen,” he said.

So, what does he prefer? Directing films or judging shows on television? Cooking!” he replied on a lighter note, and went on to add: “I absolutely love cooking. That’s what my family and my wife say! They believe I am a great and then a great filmmaker. I love cooking almost every day for my family.” Ludo will have its television premiere on Sony Max on February 28.
