Choked marks the fourth collaboration of Netflix and Anurag Kashyap. The filmmaker had earlier helmed a segment each in anthology movies Lust Stories and Ghost Stories, apart from directing multiple episodes of web series Sacred Games.
Choked’s story revolves around Sarita (Saiyami Kher) who is a banker struggling to run the household on her own as she lets her husband Sushant (Roshan Mathew) follow his lifelong dream of becoming a musician.
Talking about the movie, Anurag Kashyap told Mid-Day, “The film is close to my heart. It is about relationships, and the precarious balance between truth, power and money. It is the story of a strong-willed, middle-class housewife who finds cash flowing out of her kitchen sink every night, and how this changes her life.”
Choked will start streaming on Netflix from June 5.
