The director revealed the release date of the film in a statement, claiming that the film captures the intricacies and inconsistencies of the modern world. “Bheed is a story that sheds light on the social disparity that the country faced in the toughest of times.

Kumar expressed his excitement about collaborating with Sinha on Bheed, a film that will shed light on the difficult circumstances the nation is now experiencing. The producer of the film said, “Bheed is a film that will share a deep and insightful perspective into some of the tough times that our country has been through in recent years and Anubhav‘s vision as a director is second to none.”
The film is co-produced by Sinha and T-Series, which is run by Bhushan Kumar. The film also features Virendra Saxena, Aditya Shrivastav, Kritika Kamra, and Karan Pandit.
The other short from the anthology is a socio-political drama that spans two generations with the pandemic as the backdrop, which was helmed by Mishra and starred Taapsee Pannu along with Parambrata Chatterjee.
