Earlier on Sunday, the Highway actor had revealed the name of her production house, Eternal Sunshine Productions, and the logo as well. Darlings will mark the directorial debut of Jasmeet K Reen.
“Life is tough Darlings, but so are you… both! Unleashing our Darlings onto the world… Caution is advisable,” his post read. He also revealed that the film will be a “dark comedy”.
According to a press release, the film is a unique story of a quirky mother-daughter duo navigating through crazy circumstances as they try to find their place in the world. The film is set in Mumbai against the backdrop of a conservative lower-middle-class neighbourhood and traces the lives of these two women as they find courage and love in exceptional circumstances.
Gaurav Verma, producer and COO, Red Chillies Entertainment, said in a press release that the company’s endeavour has always been to collaborate with fresh talent and that vision aligned with Darlings.
“Jasmeet is a talented writer-director and Darlings is her very entertaining take on life. We have a fabulous cast in Shefali, Vijay, and Roshan, and a wonderful partner in Alia as actor-producer. It’s a great story and we are eager to bring it to the viewers,” he said.
Bhatt said in the statement that the film has a “powerful story with a lot of humour and doses of dark comedy”.
Written by Parveez Sheikh and Reen, the film is slated to go on floors from this month.
