As the content in the Indian films are evolving from regressive to progressive, filmmakers are rooting for the same to resonate commercial viability. Anurag Kashyap's next untitled directorial had been grabbing headlines for quite some time now.

The film encompassing four stories includes the cast of Saif Ali Khan, Abhishek Bachchan, Rajkummar Rao, Fatima Sana Shaikh and Aditya Roy Kapur.

The film has already gone on floors with Abhishek Bachchan shooting for his part. As per the sources, Abhishek Bachchan's story is unusual from other characters stories. Revealing about the same, a source said to a leading daily, "Abhishek doesn't have a heroine opposite him in the film. In fact, his is the only segment in the anthology that doesn't have a romantic angle. He has shot some portions in Kolkata and will resume work now that he's back from his holiday to Goa with wife Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and daughter Aaradhya."

"He plays a local goon. Hence, he has this look throughout the film. The plot revolves around his backstory, which is quite emotional," the source added further.

The shoot of the film has commenced first with Abhishek Bachchan's story while others will follow after the dates of the rest of the cast is fixed.

About the same, the source said, "Starting with Abhishek was easier because he didn't have a co-star. As for Saif, Rajkummar and Aditya, they have committed their dates to other projects. So, whenever they have time off, Anurag plans to shoot their portions."
