Shah Rukh Khan’s production Darlings, starring Alia Bhatt set to go on floors
The Shah Rukh Khan production upcoming project Darlings, starring Alia Bhatt, is set to go on floors soon. On Monday it was revealed that the makers plan to release the film later this year. An official announcement on the project will be made soon. Darlings is pitched as a quirky story about a mother-daughter duo. While Alia plays the daughter, actress Shefali Shah is cast as the mother. Other actors on board are Vijay Varma and Roshan Mathew.
“The film is set in Mumbai against the backdrop of a middle-class family and traces the lives of two women, as they find courage and love in exceptional circumstances. In fact, the movie is gearing up for a release this year itself. The pre-production work is going on full swing, and the team is all ready to take it on floors very soon in Mumbai,” a source reveals.
“An official announcement is expected this week and, according to the source, Darlings will go on the floors as early as the first quarter of 2021,” says the source.
Darlings marks the directorial debut of Jasmeet K Reen, who has worked as an Associate Director and Chief Assistant director on multiple films and previously written films like Force 2, Fanney Khan and Pati Patni Aur Woh. This is the second time Alia and Shah Rukh have collaborated. They worked together in Gauri Shinde’s 2016 film Dear Zindagi, though as co-stars.
Besides Darlings, Shah Rukh is also backing Love Hostel featuring Bobby Deol, Vikrant Massey, and Sanya Malhotra. The film is all set to go on floors. He also produces Bob Biswas starring Abhishek Bachchan. The project is in the post-production stage and gearing up for a Summer 2021 opening.
Shah Rukh Khan is also currently busy shooting for his next starrer, Pathan. The film will mark his return to screen for the first time since his 2018 release Zero.
