Mumbai: Writer Apurva Asrani is set to make his feature directorial debut with a story dealing with mental health issues.

The untitled project will focus on the journey of a "forgotten genius who is slowly losing his mind", Apurva revealed on Facebook.

"Pleased to announce my solo directorial debut, co-produced by and starring my 'Satya' and 'Aligarh' star, Manoj Bajpayee.

"My script traces the emotional journey of a forgotten genius who is slowly losing his mind. Since awareness & support for mental health issues is sharply lacking in India, we chose the 'Mental Health Awareness Month' to make this announcement," Apurva wrote.

The writer-editor's last project was Amazon Prime series 'Made in Heaven'. He worked as a series editor on the show created by Zoya Akhtar and Reema Kagti.
