Rubya Chaudhry also shared her excitement. “So excited to share our labour of love Bench with you all,” she wrote.



It is a dialogue-centric film that explores the struggles faced by the characters played by Rubya and Usman. “Bench is about a young couple who are at a crossroad of their relationship where leaving each other is just as difficult as staying together. They meet again at their favorite spot to resolve their conflict, once and for all.”

Bench will release digitally on YouTube on November 25.
