Veteran acting legend Naseeruddin Shah and rising star Kalki Koechlin (MARGARITA WITH A STRAW) are the charismatic stars of director Anu Menon’s drama WAITING, playing two strangers who meet in a hospital, where their respective partners lie in a coma. Their meeting sees them start to re-examine what they want to do with their lives as they deal with their grief and sadness.
