Echoing the decision of a fellow filmmaker, acclaimed director Sudhir Mishra also took to his social media account to question what exactly is Bollywood. The director is reported saying that he only believes in Indian Cinema and nothing else. It remains to be seen if Anubhav Sinha’s resignation would mean that the director will make films or if he would change his mind.
Meanwhile, Anubhav’s next film is a multi-starrer titled ‘Abhi Toh Party Shuru Hui Hai’. The film was slated to release in October 2020 before the coronavirus pandemic hit the country.
