The film is being produced by actor Anushka Sharma and her brother Karnesh Ssharma’s banner Clean Slate Filmz, who have also produced Paatal Lok on Amazon Prime Video.
The streaming platform released the first look of the actors and a clip on the making of the film. The film revolves around a daughter’s efforts to earn a place in her mother’s heart.
Talking about the film, Dutt said, “Mother-daughter relationships are sacred and often complicated. Qala is a beautiful, heart-breaking story about a daughter who craves her mother’s love. I am ecstatic to have such incredible actors on-board and cannot wait for the world to discover the film with Tripti, Babil and Swastika.”
Dimri took to social media to announce the wrap of the film’s first schedule.
Babil Khan announced his debut on social media as well.
Qala will mark the second collaboration of Netflix, Clean Slate Filmz, Dutt and Dimri, who last worked on the 2020 film horror-drama film Bulbbul.
“With Bulbbul, we found imaginative creative partners in Clean Slate Filmz to bring to life the stunning vision of Anvitaa Dutt. We are thrilled to reunite with them for Qala, and once again tell an intricate tale of a woman that we hope will resonate with many. We are also excited that the incredibly talented Tripti Dimri will be back on Netflix, this time with the promising Babil I Khan, the newest addition to the growing Netflix family,” said Srishti Behl Arya, director, international original Film, Netflix India.
