Stay tned for more as we will be 'coming out' with an announcement to make this month even more special," Zareen wrote on social media, confirming the news.

Directed by Harish Vyas, "Hum Bhi Akele Tum Bhi Akele" is pitched as a mainstream Bollywood film with Zareen and Anshuman essaying gay protagonists.

"Hum Bhi Akele Tum Bhi Akele" won Best Film award in New York at the HBO South Asian Film Festival in December last year, where its world premiere was also held.
