Trailer of Madhuri Dixit's Maja Ma released
The film also features Gajraj Rao, Ritwik Bhowmik, Barkha Singh, Srishti Shrivastava, among others
The trailer of Madhuri Dixit’s upcoming film Maja Ma, was released by Amazon Prime Video on Thursday. The film is set to premiere on October 6.
Directed by Anand Tiwari, the film also features Gajraj Rao, Ritwik Bhowmik, Barkha Singh, Srishti Shrivastava, among others. It is produced by Leo Media Collective and Amritpal Singh Bindra and written by Sumit Batheja.
The trailer shows Madhuri playing the role of Pallavi, a strong woman who serves as the backbone for her family of four. As a series of events unfold, a life that she has built with so much love starts to fall apart, putting her son’s upcoming engagement in jeopardy. The conflict tests existing relationships for resilience, understanding and beliefs.
“It is a role with complex nuances that I have never played before. Pallavi Patel carries enormous responsibility around – as a mother, as a wife and as a contributing member of society with such ease and grace, that it becomes easy to overlook her strength, conviction, and resilience. She goes through a multitude of emotions that could have strong repercussions on her life and the lives of people she loves,” said Madhuri.
“You will see me play a middle-class man, a father to young adults and husband to a loving wife, in Maja Ma,” said Gajraj Rao, while Ritwik Bhowmik, who plays the son, said, “I play a mamma’s boy. And how can I not, when the mamma is the gorgeous and doting, Madhuri Dixit herself. Tejas is a sincere yet aspirational young man. He is still finding himself, traversing his ambitions and his intrinsic value system.”
“I am so excited to be playing Esha. My character has great balance – despite having been brought up by orthodox NRI parents, she has modern American traits while still having Indian sensibilities. She is her own woman, confident and free spirited,” said Barkha Singh.
