Alia Bhatt and Bollywood director Karan Johar have a close relationship and the former never misses an opportunity to promote the latter. Karan couldn’t help but acknowledge the entire crew as Alia prepares to make her production debut with Darlings, a movie in which she also plays as the lead. He used social media to share the movie’s poster and to give credit to the performers, filmmakers, and producers.
He began his note by saying, “A debut director so assured that she sucks you into the vortex of #Darlings like a bonafide veteran! To balance humour ( dark and conversational ) with a sensitive subject is a massive challenge in itself but the team of this nuanced noir and exceptionally solid film take it on and emerge victor victorious! So fun! So hard hitting and so engaging! All at once! @aliaabhatt @shefalishahofficial @itsvijayvarma @roshan.matthew are FANTASTIC!!! This is the best ensemble of actors I have seen in a long time! BRAVO! Take a bow Jasmeet @jasmeet_k_reen what a debut!!!! Can’t wait to see more of your work!”
Alia is co-producing the film with Shah Rukh Khan and Gauri Khan’s Red Chillies Entertainment. Giving a shoutout to the proudecers, he continued, “Congratulations My baby girl @aliaabhatt what a brave decision to begin your producer journey with.. may the sunshine on your content decisions eternally! @gaurikhan @iamsrk @redchilliesent @_gauravverma take a BOW !! What a PROUD film to green light !!! May the force always be with you! So finally My darlings don’t miss #darlings on the 5th of August only on @netflix_in …..it’s a 5 star film!”
This month, the trailer for the movie was released. It features Alia in a never-before-seen role, along with Shefali Shah, Vijay Varma, and Roshan Mathew. On August 5th, Darlings will be available on Netflix.
