A new producer in B-Town, Alia Bhatt starts shooting for her new film Darlings!
Alia Bhatt has started shooting for Darlings, which also marks her first production venture under her banner Eternal Sunshine Productions. Darlings is an unusual mother-daughter story, that is being co-produced through Shah Rukh Khan’s Red Chillies Entertainment. The film, starring Shefali Shah, is set in Mumbai in opposition to the backdrop of a conservative lower-middle-class neighborhood. Directed by author Jasmeet K Reen, the darkish comedy traces the lives of ladies as they discover braveness and love in extraordinary circumstances.
Alia shared photos from the sets and spoke about how she is nervous to kickstart a new project. She wrote,” Day one of DARLINGS! my first film as a producer but I will always be an actor first & forever (in this case a very nervous actor). I don’t know what it is. A night before I start a new film I get this nervous tingling energy all over my body. I dream all night about messing up my lines, become jumpy and reach the sets 15 mins before time, fearing I’ll be late!”.
She added that she thinks being nervous is also a sign of the fact that you really care. Alia mentioned, “I guess this feeling will never go away.. and it shouldn’t – because being nervous.. and feeling unsure means you really really care,”. Concluding the post, Alia told her fans and well-wishers to send a lot of luck her way as she has to “match up to my co-stars Vijay Varma, Shefali Shah, and Roshan Mathew.”
Mouni Roy, Dia Mirza, Anita Hassanandani, Jacqueline Fernandes, Zoa Morani, and others wished Alia good luck for her new endeavor. Alia’s post received lots of love and comments from her contemporaries and fans. Vijay said he also feels nervous when he starts a new project. However, complimenting Alia, he wrote, “I got the best co-actor/producer so I’m sorted. aap apna dekho darlings.”
