Actress Alia Bhatt’s first production film “Darlings” is set to release on Netflix on August 5.
Alia Bhatt will be seen alongside actress Shefali Shah, Vijay Varma and Roshan Mathew in the comedy film set in Mumbai. Alia has produced the film through her banner Eternal Sunshine Productions in association with actor Shah Rukh Khan’s Red Chillies Entertainment.
Netflix shared a poster of the film on Instagram, which marks the directorial debut of writer Jasmeet K Rein. The poster read, “Can a frog and a scorpion be friends? Watch Darlings, August 5, only on Netflix.”
Alia (29) shared the teaser of the film on her Instagram page and wrote, “This is just a glimpse of ‘Darlings’.”
The film explores the lives of a mother-daughter duo as they try to find their place in the city and find courage and love in extraordinary circumstances while fighting all odds.
This will be Alia’s second film of the year after Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Gangubai Kathiawadi’ released in February. ‘Darlings’ has music by Vishal Bhardwaj and lyrics by veteran writer Gulzar.
