Anurag Basu 1

Director Anurag Basu talks about how the name of the film ‘Ludo’ came about….

With a unique name and a comparison to the board game – Ludo, Anurag Basu left many viewers curious about the etymology of his upcoming Netflix film, Ludo. As the trailer dropped on 19th October 2020, and showcased the four different journeys that the stunning ensemble cast will be going on in the film, one question remained etched in the minds of the audience – why Ludo?

Talking about how he came up with this commonly heard yet unique name, director Anurag Basu said, “Before we started making Ludo, I had close to four-five scripts ready and I had to make the difficult choice of which to go ahead with. Tani and Pritam da pushed me towards this script and that’s how it came together. Regarding the name, throughout my last film, Jagga Jasoos, we all used to play Ludo on the set; actually not just on set, but even while travelling on long drives, the game of Ludo never ended. And just like this is a story of four different journeys coming together, the name Ludo fell in place.”

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. The film stars Abhishek A. Bachchan, Aditya Roy Kapur, Rajkummar Rao, Sanya Malhotra, Fatima Sana Shaikh, Rohit Saraf, Pearle Maaney, Pankaj Tripathi, Asha Negi, Shalini Vats and Inayat Verma.

Ludo releases on Netflix on 12th November 2020
