Film critic and trade analyst Taran Adarsh, announced the information on Twitter. The film marks first collaboration between Anubhav Sinha and Rajkummar Rao, while it will be former’s reunion with Bhushan Kumar after critically acclaimed ‘Thappad’.

While sharing his thoughts on the forthcoming film, the director in a press statement said that “Bheed is one of those titles that the whole team jumps at the moment you propose it. To me, casting was crucial. Raj is a very intriguing actor. He is one of the very few actors who can be so successfully transparent in a story. There always was a keen desire to work with him and I am looking forward to it. I am honoured to have a solid collaborator like Bhushan on my side who is such a strong pillar and a sturdy sounding board.”

“I am thrilled to be working with Anubhav Sinha. It’s a matter of great honour and privilege to great honour and privilege to collaborate with a filmmaker who has such a distinct voice. Reuniting with Bhushan Kumar feels like coming back on home turf after the success of Ludo last year. I have always found myself gravitating towards stories that trigger conversation. Even as an entertainer, I want my work to get people thinking. This is an important subject and the character needs me to stretch myself as an artist, beyond my comfort zone. I can’t wait to start shooting and lose myself in this universe,” said Rao.
