It is directed by Arvind Caulagi and produced by National Award-winning director turned producer Sudhanshu Saria.

Opening up about the film’s world premiere, Sudhanshu said, “We are proud of the tender and emotional gaze with which Arvind has told this story, and we can’t wait for audiences to discover a brand new queer voice in Indian cinema. We are just as grateful to Kashish Arts Foundation and Lotus Visual for selecting this script and choosing to produce it with us.”

Film’s director and writer Arvind Caulagi also shared his excitement about the same, saying, “Kashish Film Festival is the perfect venue for the film’s world premiere, and I can’t wait to see how audiences receive it and where the film goes from here. TAPS is a small step in continuing to add to the dignified representation of queer Indian lives, and I hope it opens up important and sensitive conversations that help bring acceptance and sensitivity to LGBTQIA+ issues in our country.”

TAPS will be screening in the Indian Narrative Shorts category.
