Sardar Ka Grandson, the Hindi film starring Neena Gupta, Arjun Kapoor, Rakul Preet Singh, Aditi Rao Hydari, and John Abraham, will release on Netflix on May 18.
The trailer of the family entertainer was released on Wednesday.
Revolving around a grandmother’s last wish, a “dedicated” grandson, a “heartwarming” journey while celebrating the bonds within a large Punjabi family, the story of Sardar Ka Grandson explores their unique relationship and is a tribute to multi-generational family bonds, Netflix said in a statement.
Sardar Ka Grandson showcases the journey of a US-returned grandson (Kapoor) who will go to any length to fulfil the last wish of Sardar (Gupta), the family matriarch.
Directed by debutant director Kaashvie Nair, the film also features Soni Razdan, Kanwaljit Singh, Kumud Mishra and Divya Seth in pivotal roles.
“Sardar Ka Grandson is personal because it is a delectable mix of my grandparents and my attachment to my childhood home. It celebrates the unconditional love between grandparents and grandchildren. I feel like I am one of the luckiest debut directors to have an eclectic mix of actors, a strong crew and unconditional support from the producers Nikkhil, Madhu, Monisha, John and Bhushan Kumar,” Nair said in the statement.
Describing the film as a “joyous ride”, Gupta said: “This is the first time that I’m playing a character like this. A lot of effort was put into honing the way Sardar talked, looked, and reacted to situations. Sardar Ka Grandson is a joyous ride filled with mixed emotions which will make the audience smile, and also leave a tear or two in their eyes.”
Kapoor called the film an “emotional film with a strong message”.
Produced under the banners of T-Series, Enmay Entertainment and JA Entertainment, Sardar Ka Grandson has been written by Anuja Chauhan and Nair, with dialogues by Amitosh Nagpal.
