Alia Bhatt is excited about her upcoming film Darlings. It is touted as a black comedy-drama film and will release on Netflix. The trailer of the much-awaited film was dropped on Youtube and received much love and appreciation. It marks the first film of Alia Bhatt as a producer under her own production house Eternal Sunshine Productions and it is also co-produced by Shah Rukh Khan’s Red Chillies Entertainment.
At the young age of 28, she announced her production company on February 28th, 2021. Since then it took her more than a year to release her first film as a producer. Alia revealed why she chose to produce the film and became a part of it. She also expressed her reaction when she heard the narration.
Alia said, “When I met Jasmeet Reen, the director, in 2019, I had a packed schedule. But I have a habit of taking a narration because you never know where a good script can come from. The narration started and it was pretty normal and suddenly it shifted gears. I was right at the edge of the seat and it is rare that I get surprised with a script but it happened with Darlings. Very naturally I got a thought that I would like to be a producer on this as well. Gaurav Verma, COO of Red Chillies was extremely supportive and he said it was a fantastic idea.”
Darlings is written and directed by Jasmeet Reen and co-produced by Gauri Khan, Alia Bhatt, and Gaurav Verma under the banners of Red Chillies Entertainment and Eternal Sunshine Productions. It is scheduled to release on streaming giant Netflix on 5th August.
On the work front, Alia is gearing up for the highly anticipated fantasy film Brahmastra along with her husband Ranbir Kapoor. The soon mom-to-be has completed her Hollywood shoot Heart of Stone with Gal Gadot. Making her debut as a producer she is also debuting in Hollywood movies.
