Anushka Sharma may not feature in a movie this year but she remains active as a producer.

Her production company Clean Slate Productions will introduce lyricist-screenwriter Anvita Dutt Guptan as a director in a film called Bulbul.

A supernatural thriller set in Kolkata, Bulbul is a period film that Anushka is producing for Netflix.


A source tells Subhash K Jha that Bulbul will star the talented pair, Avinash Tiwary and Tripti Dimri.

They were introduced in Sajid Ali’s experimental Laila Majnu, a revisionist take on the classic in 2018.

So far, Netflix has not had much luck with Hindi stand-alone feature films, like the Karan Johar's productions, Driver and Ghost Stories.

Perhaps Bulbul will turn the tide.
