Zareen Khan and Anshuman Jha’s upcoming film, Hum Bhi Akele Tum Bhi Akele is being readied for a digital release. The film tells the story of a gay man and a lesbian girl on a road trip from Delhi to McLeodganj.

“It was slated for a March release but then the lockdown was announced,” Zareen shared. “We were hoping the lockdown would get over by May, but it did not. I don't think it's sensible to wait more for the theatres to open up and then release it. There's uncertainty of when that's going to happen. So the makers have decided to release it on OTT platforms as many other films.”

For the film, Zareen won the Best Actress Award at the Rajasthan International Film Festival. The romantic drama also won the Best Film Audience Choice Award at South Asian International Film Festival in New York.

On playing a homosexual character in the film, Zareen said, “Despite having fought for our Independence and having the freedom, and section 377 being approved, there are still families in which you can't walk up and confess your sexual orientation. So freedom is still not completely there in certain sections of society and in some families, although the government has approved it.”

Hum Bhi Akele Tum Bhi Akele is helmed by Angrezi Mein Kehte Hai director Harish Vyas. The film was shot around Delhi, Noida and McLeodganj.
