Anurag was the previously co-founder of Phantom Films. The company closed in 2018 after sexual harassment allegations surfaced against one of its main partners, filmmaker Vikas Bahl.
‘Choked,’ stars Saiyami Kher in the lead role. Kher went into detail about her character in the film by saying, “Sarita is a middle-class woman. She is the sole breadwinner. She is overworked and frustrated yet tenacious and always scheming to build that dream. At one level Sarita is that every-woman. Nihit Bhave, our writer, has beautifully woven the complexities of this middle-class family. Working on Choked has been a life-changing experience for me.”
The movie premieres on Netflix on 5th June.
