Sanya Malhotra’s new film, Pagglait, has gone on floors in Lucknow. Directed by Umesh Bist, the light-hearted entertainer is produced by Balaji Telefilms and Sikhya Entertainment.
“Lakdi log ko akal aati hai na toh log unhe ‘pagglait’ kehte hai (When a girl becomes smart she is called mad) is a statement that can aptly define the movie,” producer Guneet Monga, who heads Sikhya, said. “Our film is a story of a young girl as she discovers her purpose and identity amidst looming questions about love and belonging in the neo-modern small-town India.”
Co-producer Ekta Kapoor added, “Guneet is one of the most relevant voices in Indian cinema today. When I heard the very concept of the film, I knew we had to do this together.”
Umesh Bisht is known for directing the film O Teri (2014) and co-writing Hero (2015). Sanya made her Bollywood debut in Dangal. Her recent works include Pataakha, Badhaai Ho and Photograph.
