Yoodlee Films’ announced a new project today titled ‘Agra’ with director Kanu Behl whose first film ‘Titli’ wowed the audience. Before its release, the film travelled to more than twenty major festivals worldwide including 2104 edition of Cannes Film Festival and won several awards in various categories . 

‘Agra’ boasts of an ensemble cast headlined by Rahul Roy who makes a comeback with this film. It also features Priyanka Bose, Mohit Agarwal and Ruhani Sharma, Vibha Chibber, Sonal Jha and Aanchal Goswami in pivotal roles. 

The film delves into sexual dynamics that operate within a close dysfunctional family unit. In a country where there are topics that are rarely explored with any amount of sensitivity, Kanu Behl's vision is a refreshing take on sexual politics with family members and the merging consequences in their interpersonal relationships.

On the film, Kanu Behl said, "Agra is a story of a cosmos of a family – throbbing and pulsating, hunting and escaping the very dynamic energies that people in the family inhabit. Its an exploration of space in an increasingly crowded world, and the quest for a sexual odyssey of an individual here. Having a production house like Yoodlee Films to come onboard and back this project gives me confidence in their commitment to creating meaningful cinema – cinema which is at once relevant and unique in content."

Meanwhile, Siddharth Anand Kumar, Producer Yoodlee Films said, "Agra continues the commitment of Yoodlee Films to create quality cinema, championing a good script above all else, fearless in its choice of subjects, and to be counted amongst the best in the world. The fact that we have a talent like Kanu Behl is in charge of bringing this riveting story to screen makes this an exciting proposition to look out for all cine-goers. "

'Agra' is set to be shot in and around the city of Agra and will go on floors this month. The film is expected to hit theatres by next year.
