INDIA: Anurag Basu is set to present Ludo on the occasion of Diwali this year. The film traces four different journeys as their paths meet at a cross section. Recalling the incident, Anurag Basu, director of Netflix’s Ludo, said, “To shoot for one of the scenes in the film, we went to Kolkata. The connection that Abhishek Bachchan has with this city is surprisingly unique – they call him ‘Nathi’ as his mother, the legendary Jaya Bachchan is Bengali and the fan following he has here is massive. We reached to shoot and when we stepped out, there was a huge crowd that had gathered, screaming out his name. I was stunned. We tried to shoot for three whole days and everytime we stepped out, we encountered the same thing. Eventually, I gave up — Abhishek’s fan following triumphed and we had to pack up and leave the city because shooting there was impossible.”

Ludo is a story which shows you that you don’t meet people by accident, they are meant to cross your paths for a reason. Following the journey of four different lives who meet at a crossroads, Ludo is much more than just a mere coincidence.
