New Delhi: Bollywood filmmaker Karan Johar dropped the teaser of Ajeeb Daastaans on Friday. It’s an anthology of four films, created by four filmmakers including Shashank Khaitan, Raj Mehta, Neeraj Ghaywan and Kayoze Irani for Netflix. Karan unveiled the teaser of Ajeeb Daastaans on his Twitter handle. He captioned it, “It’s here… A collaborative effort, yet uniquely individual. Presenting #AjeebDaastaans with 4 exceptionally talented #DirectorsOfDharma, coming together to weave 4 individual stories that are stranger than reality itself (sic).” He further added, “I can’t wait to see how each one paints their canvas with their own shade of cinema and storytelling! Some stories take you places, but these 4 will take you somewhere you never thought you’d be. #AjeebDaastaans premieres 16 April, only on Netflix.” The teaser has glimpses of the four stories which are a concoction of love, lust, thrill and shock. The film will premiere on Netflix on April 16.
Ajeeb Daastaans has an ensemble cast including Abhishek Banerjee, Aditi Rao Hydari, Armaan Ralhan, Fatima Sana Shaikh, Inayat Verma, Jaideep Ahlawat, Konkona Sen Sharma, Manav Kaul, Nushrratt Bharuccha, Shefali Shah and Tota Roy Chowdhury in the lead roles.
Netflix described the premise as “Ajeeb Daastaans will showcase four diverse stories exploring human flaws and emotions like jealousy, entitlement, prejudices and toxicity, which are often entangled at the heart of a relationship. The films raise questions that will leave you with a dilemma between what’s right and what’s wrong as the lines get blurred.”
Ajeeb Daastaans is written by Neeraj Ghaywan, Shashank Khaitan, Sumit Saxena and Uzma Khan.
