Darlings Trailer: 'Powerhouses' Alia Bhatt, and Shefali Shah serve revenge cold in Netflix's film; Vijay Varma is deliciously good
Alia Bhatt's maiden venture as a producer is all set to release on Netflix on August 5. Titled Darlings, the film is headlined by the actress along with Shefali Shah, Vijay Varma and Roshan Mathew. Amid much excitement and anticipation, the trailer of Darlings was released on social media today.
The trailer of Darlings traces the lives of Badrunissa Shaikh (Alia), her husband Hamza (Vijay) and her mother (Shefali). Hamza, a ticket collector, goes missing. The mother-daughter duo decide to take things into their control. But, there's more to the tale. As always, Shefali and Alia are deliciously good in this dark comedy. The powerhouses of talent never disappoint. Vijay as Hamza is someone to look out for. Yet another beautiful act from the wonderful actor. We are eager to see Roshan shine too.
Darlings is produced under Red Chillies Entertainment & Eternal Sunshine Productions. Produced by Gauri Khan, Alia Bhatt, and Gaurav Verma, the film is the debut full-length feature for director Jasmeet K Reen.
Talking about Darlings, Jasmeet 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 added, “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 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.”
