Meanwhile on work front, Sudhir is busy with his upcoming directorial 'Afwaah' starring Bhumi Pednekar and Nawazuddin Siddiqui. It is produced by Anubhav Sinha.
Talking about the film, Mishra said, "It's a story I have lived with for a long time and I have only worked each day to make it quirky and twisted. Beneath all of the quirkiness lies a crucial message which I want my viewers to take back home with them. Bhumi and Nawaz are both such powerhouse performers and together they bring fresh chemistry. I can't wait to be on set with them."
He also has a yet-to-be-titled short film with Taapsee Pannu. It is a part of Bhushan Kumar and Anubhav Sinha's produced untitled anthology.
Mishra talked about the film and his experience of collaborating with Taapsee. "From the first draft, I knew I wanted Taapsee to do the film. We had such a great time working on the film. Together we have made a film with all our heart and we hope it connects with the world," he said.
The anthology is said to showcase emotional stories of love and compassion with the pandemic as a backdrop.
