One is on the run from a murder suspect and, as the plot progresses, twists await to be unfolded.

So working in good projects with great scripts gives me a high. The coincidence that ‘Tandav’ and ‘1962: The War In The Hills’ and now ‘Raat Baaki Hai’ — it is almost like I have a project releasing every month. Luckily I have a feature film named “Satyamev Jayate 2″ coming up too. It is a great feeling for me as an actor,” he said.
Featuring Rahul Dev, Paoli Dam and Dipannita Sharma along with Annup, and directed by Avinash Das, “Raat Baaki Hai” releases on Zee5 on April 16.
