Super stoked about the news, Nushrat said, “I am extremely excited to be a part of Chhori. This genre excites me and the fact that the story is anchored in practices of our society, makes it relatable and impactful. I have wanted to work with Vishal Furia and I am so glad we’ve finally collaborated on Chhori, which is so close to his heart. Abundantia Entertainment and Vikram Malhotra have always backed high-quality, progressive stories and are known to make films with strong female voices – and as an actor, I couldn’t ask for more. Our collaboration with an international creator like Crypt TV and its CEO Jack Davis, whose expertise in this genre is unparalleled, makes this even more thrilling. I have enjoyed some of their content thoroughly and in my very first meeting with Jack we connected instantly on how we envisaged this genre and film. I am looking forward to beginning my experience with each one of them.”

Producer Vikram Malhotra of the Abundantia Entertainment said, “ I am confident that our collaboration on this film will allow us to create some irresistibly scary content under our latest vertical ‘Psych’. I am also delighted to collaborate with the immensely talented Nushrat. I have seen her grow as an artist and her dedication to her craft is amazing.”

While, Jack Davis, Co-Founder and CEO – Crypt TV, added, “Abundantia and Crypt share a passion for using genre as a way to tell culture-changing stories and I found the perfect mix of that and meaningful social issues in Lapachhapi. Working with an exceptional filmmaker like Vishal Furia is a privilege and key to telling such an important story in the horror genre. And to have Nushrat Bharucha playing the lead in the film is a true thrill.” Well, this one will surely get the audience hooked to their screens.
