Alia Bhatt pulls off the curtain from her debut film as a producer. Darlings marks the first film of the actor turned producer Alia Bhatt under her production house ‘Eternal Sunshine’. 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 disclose her first film release as a producer. It is clear that she chose the OTT platform to take the initial step of being a producer as the movie is slated to be released on Netflix.
Alia Bhatt on Darlings:
Talking about Darlings, co-produced by Eternal Sunshine, Alia Bhatt said, “Darlings holds a very special place in my heart, it’s my first film as a producer that too with Red Chillies. We are very proud and happy how the film has shaped up and we hope it will entertain and engage audiences world over.”
Jasmeet K Reen, director of the forthcoming film stated, “I couldn’t have asked for a better feature film debut—working with a pool of versatile and talented actors has been an absolute pleasure. I am delighted that Red Chillies and Eternal Sunshine are taking the film across the globe with Netflix.”
Alia Bhatt recently left for her Hollywood project Heart Of Stone with Gal Gadot and announced her Bollywood project in association with her favourite star Shahrukh Khan’s Red Chillies Entertainment. Last year she shared a reel on Instagram mentioning wrap of Darlings. She wrote: “Darlings, it’s a wrap!! We have done our best to make a film that we are hoping you will love! See you at the movies.”
Darlings is a joint venture of Red Chillies Entertainment, owned by Shahrukh Khan, and Alia Bhatt’s production Eternal Sunshine. Gaurav Verma, who is producer and COO of Red Chillies Entertainment, said, “A script nurtured inhouse, and later produced with the incredible Alia, and supported by a stellar cast in Shefali Shah, Vijay Varma and Roshan Mathew, helmed by Jasmeet, who has lot of promise, Darlings is very special to all of us. Gulzar Saab and Vishal Ji have given soul to the film with the songs. We couldn’t have asked for more. I cannot wait for the audience to finally see the film.”
