The film has Ayushmann play a 'blind' piano artist. His passion for playing piano takes him on a scary roller coaster of events. The film ends up leaving us awestruck as we the cinema halls and that's what must have happened with the audience in the neighbouring country as well!
Ayushmann who played the funny, chocolate boy all these years, stunned everyone with this character. He had to convince the makers to see him as a person who can do a thriller genre and thanks to the makers, he was roped in for this master piece after a screen test. "I have established myself as a slice-of-life actor for the past six years and I wanted to break that mould and do a thriller," he said in an interview. Well, he has managed to do what he had promised and the team is all set to celebrate the next milestone soon!
