Revathy to direct Kajol in drama feature The Last Hurrah
The film is currently in pre-production and is expected to go on floors soon
Actor-filmmaker Revathy will direct Kajol in an upcoming feature titled The Last Hurrah.
Written by Sammeer Arora, the feature is inspired by a true story that chronicles the life of an exemplary mother, Sujata, who battled the most challenging situations one can ever face with a smile. The Last Hurrah is backed by Suuraj Sinngh and Shraddha Agrawal under the banner Blive Productions and Take 23 Studios Production.
Speaking about why she thinks Kajol is the perfect choice to play Sujatha, Revathy said in a statement, "Sujata's journey in The Last Hurrah is extremely close to my heart. It's not only relatable but also inspiring. When Suuraj, Shraddha and I were discussing this film, Kajol was the first person who came to our mind."
"Her soft yet energetic eyes and her beautiful smile will make you believe that anything is possible and that is exactly how Sujata is. I am very excited for this collaboration and to be working with Kajol for this heartening story," she added.
Kajol said that she instantly connected with the character of Sujatha. "I think it's a beautiful journey and it deserves to be shared with everyone. And to have Revathy direct me for this story gives me more strength to play Sujata and showcase her strengths," she said.
Revathy has previously helmed films like the National Award-winning Mitr, My Friend, Phir Milenge, Makal (a segment in the Malayalam anthology Kerala Cafe), and Parcel (a segment in the Hindi anthology Mumbai Cutting).
The Last Hurrah is currently in pre-production and is expected to go on floors soon.
