Jha, who has previously featured the works of Bulleh Shah in his LGBTQiA+ film, Hum Bhi Akele, Tum Bhi Akele, says of the upcoming action thriller, Lakadbaggha: “It was a conscious effort to include the works of these masters in the stories we weave. It is our responsibility as artists to do so. Tagore is a hero for me, and Purano is my favorite [verse]. We asked Shruti Pathak to sing it. This is her first song in Bengali.

Victor Mukherjee’s directorial venture also stars Ridhi Dogra, as well as Soman. Jha plays the protagonist.
