Alia Bhatt-Roshan Mathew starrer Darlings begins!
‘Darlings’ is an upcoming Hindi film starring Alia Bhatt, Shefali Shah, Malayalam actor Roshan Mathew and ‘Gully Boy’ fame Vijay Varma in the lead roles. Debutant Jasmeet K Reen is directing the film. Red Chillies Entertainment headed by Gauri Khan and Shah Rukh Khan are presenting the film in association with Alia Bhatt’s newly launched Eternal Sunshine Productions. The team has already started the works. Last day, they shared photos of the script reading session in social medias.
Earlier this week, when the film’s production began, Alia Bhatt tweeted,
Day one of Darlings! my first film as a producer but I will always be an actor first and forever (in this case a very nervous actor). I don’t know what it is.. a night before I start a new film I get this nervous tingling energy all over my body.
I dream all night about messing up my lines.. become jumpy.. reach sets 15 mins before time fearing I’ll be late. I guess this feeling will never go away.. and it shouldn’t -because being nervous and feeling unsure means you really really care.
‘Darlings’, a dark comedy, is set in a lower middle-class neighbourhood in Mumbai. It is a quirky mother-daughter story revolving around the two who discover love and courage in exceptional circumstances. Alia Bhatt and Shefali play the lead roles. Roshan Mathew, who made his Bollywood debut last this year with Anurag Kashyap’s ‘Choked’, is essaying a prominent role.
