Alia Bhatt and Shefali Shah starrer Darlings‘ trailer is here and it is more mysterious than one expected. Along with them, the film stars Vijay Varma and Roshan Mathew in pivotal roles. The trailer was unveiled on Monday.
Badru, a strong-minded woman, and her mother decide to take matters into her own hands when it comes to Badru’s husband Hamza. What follows next is a hilarious comedy jo thodi dark hain! From the trailer, it seems like Badru is in an abusive sort of relationship and takes charge in her own hands to seek revenge along with her mother played by Shefali Shah.
Talking about Darlings, debutant director Jasmeet K Reen said, “It’s been an exceptionally fulfilling creative journey from inception to seeing it come alive, along with the team at Red Chillies and Eternal Sunshine. This is my first film and I am fortunate to have worked with such amazing actors and a world-class crew who have given the film more than I could ask for. I hope that Darlings will engage and entertain audiences and I can’t wait to take my film global with Netflix.”
Producer and COO, Red Chillies Entertainment, Gaurav Verma adds, “We have been overwhelmed with the love that the teaser has garnered. It’s been an amazing experience working with some of the best in the industry on Darlings, whether it’s in terms of music, technicians, actors, writers and many more. We are extremely proud of the film we have put together, helmed by Jasmeet and in partnership with Alia Bhatt’s Eternal Sunshine Productions. I am excited to see the response and chatter of global viewers streaming the film on Netflix.”
Alia Bhatt, kicking off her maiden production (Eternal Sunshine) with Darlings, shared, “Darlings is special, the moment I read the script, I wanted to be a part of the film not only as an actor, but to play a larger role in bringing such unique stories to the viewers. I can’t hold back my excitement as we unveil the hard work of some amazing co-actors, partner producers, and Jasmeet. It’s an engaging tale that we all can’t wait to bring you through Netflix.”
