Filmmaker Shree Narayan Singh has finally kicked off his third directorial three years after his Shahid Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor starrer social drama Batti Gul Meter has learned that Singh is next directing a heart-warming family drama series, titled Homecoming.

Homecoming is said to be a soul-stirring tale of a family which reunites around Diwali time.

Shree Narayan Singh has been trying to put together many projects since 2018 but they all were either shelved or postponed indefinitely. He was supposed to direct a Netflix film starring Sonakshi Sinha this year, however, that has now been delayed due to Sinha's date issues. He was also working on the remake of Amitabh Bachchan and Dilip Kumar's 1982 action-crime drama Shakti but there's been no update on that front either. Meanwhile, the director has also announced a new film for Vinod Bhanushali's banner and we heard it's the biopic of Sher Singh Rana — a Rajput who brought back the remains of one of India's greatest rulers Prithviraj Chauhan from Afghanistan. The film is currently in the scripting stage and will go on floors sometime next year.
