“I wouldn’t name the platforms, but we had offers to turn it into a series. But if it didn’t work in theaters, how do we know it will work on OTT? Pritam is excited about the idea and wants us to get started on it. However, I am in a strange space [regarding it]. When you do something with so much love and it doesn’t work, you don’t want to try it again. The thought of starting Jagga over is enough to give me the creeps, ”Anurag was quoted as saying by Mid-day, adding that he has been dodging the offer for the past two years.

His film Ludo has been selected to be screened at the Melbourne Indian Film Festival (IFFM), keeping in mind the pandemic, from August 15 to August 30, all films will also be screened virtually. It has Abhishek Bachchan, Aditya Roy Kapur, Rajkummar Rao, Sanya Malhotra, Pearle Maaney, Pankaj Tripathi, Fatima Sana Shaikh, among others. The movie premiered on Netflix on November 12 of last year.

Anurag is currently working on his second OTT outing after LUDO. Previously, when asked about exploring the web space, he said, “Well yes, if only the story requires that format. I don’t see any reason to convert a story to a web series just because I want to explore a long story format. Each story creates an impact when told within a certain duration. Sometimes that can be as small as 10 minutes, sometimes we feel like it takes the duration of 5 hours that we cannot count in 2 hours. Once I find a story, worth telling in the format of a web series, I will happily explore. “
