If we know one thing about Jaya Ahsan, it's that she is not one to sit idle. The workaholic actor has been quietly cooking up a feature film in the pandemic. On Sunday night she posted five behind the scenes photos of her new film, but remained tight-lipped about the story, letting on merely that "it's complicated."

Helmed by Hasina: A Daughter's Tale director Piplu R Khan and produced by Jaya's C Te Cinema and Abu Shahed Emon's Box Office Multimedia, the film still doesn't have a working title, confirmed the actor. Piplu and Nusrat Mati wrote the screenplay. This is the second feature film of the director and the second producing venture for the Debi actor. 

It started out as a short film, but the story snowballed into a feature. The project was conceived six weeks ago and the shooting was completed in a fortnight.

"The 15 days of shooting was madness," Jaya said. "I learned how you can shoot a film with such a small team. It was a beautiful experience working with some extraordinarily industrious individuals."
