Directed by Ajay Bahl, who is known for movies like BA Pass and Section 375, the film went on floors last month and was shot extensively in Nainital.
Blurr also starring Gulshan Devaiah, is produced by Zee Studios, Echelon Productions and Pannu’s Outsider Films.
Bahl said the setting of Nainital brought to the film the required “beauty and mystery.”
Shooting at real locations like Nainital Lake, Mall Road and other tourist spots can be difficult especially with the overcrowding. We would shoot late at night right into the wee hours of the morning. But it was a completely gratifying experience for all of us. Nainital made for the ideal spot bringing equal parts beauty and mystery to the film,” the director said in a statement.
The psychological thriller, penned by Pawan Sony and Bahl, chronicles the story of a girl “caught up in unavoidable circumstances.”

Earlier, Taapse shared the first look of the psychological thriller on social media. She had said how management comes naturally to her and how she always thought of having her own production house.

“I am thrilled to embark upon this new journey and diversify my love for cinema with my production house ‘Outsiders Films’. Having my business ventures, management comes naturally to me. Hence, I always thought of setting my own production house. The audience and the industry have given me a lot of support and love over the 11 years of my career. With Outsiders Films, I aim to give back to the industry and empower talent who are looking for a breakthrough and come with no background like me. Pranjal and I together look forward to opening doors for new and fresh talents, both in front and behind the camera,” said Taapsee.
