With more and more filmmakers turning to the digital platform to express more of their versatile creativity, news has it Vikas Bahl will be the most recent name to be added to the long list of filmmakers already having gone down this platform. Set to collaborate with filmmaker Rahul Sengupta, Bahl’s next project will be a crime-comedy film titled ‘Sunflower’ all set for a ZEE5 release.

“This is my first project as a digital creator and it is fantastic to start off with ZEE5 on ‘Sunflower’, a project which has been exciting from the moment we conceptualized it, to the point we finalized the script. Joining me is director Rahul Sengupta; a veteran ad film maker with 5 Cannes Lions to his name; who will be helming the direction. We think ‘Sunflower’ is quirky, fun and thrilling, all at the same time,” Box Office Worldwide reports the filmmaker stating.

He went on to add, “The characters of the housing society will be the real stars of the series. Their dismissive style will give a definite impression that we are all being conned and at the same time their quirkiness and reality will make this series more relatable, even though the backdrop is set around a murder that has occurred in their housing society. The casting will be both, the most challenging as well as the most exciting part, and we are hoping to start shooting very soon, as it is slated to release in April 2021 on ZEE5.”
