Alia Bhatt’s Eternal Sunshine Productions And SRK’s Red Chillies Entertainment Present Dark Comedy Darlings
Darlings: Alia Bhatt-Vijay Varma Announce Their Dark Comedy
Darlings 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 dark comedy 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. The film comes with its own statutory warning – a reminder that offending women can be very dangerous for your health!
Darlings marks a first for many, the directorial debut of Jasmeet K Reen with a feature film and Alia Bhatt ’s first as she turns producer with Eternal Sunshine Productions . Jasmeet who has written many films earlier, speaks of her directorial debut, “With the brilliant Alia and Shefali portraying the mother-daughter duo, along with exceptionally talented Vijay (Varma) and Roshan (Mathew) we have a dream cast and the perfect ‘partners in crime’ if I can call them that. We couldn’t have asked for anything more and now I can’t wait to get on the floor!”
