Dolly Kitty Aur Woh Chamakte Sitare to premiere on September 18
Written and directed by Alankrita Srivastava, the film stars Konkona Sen Sharma and Bhumi Pednekar as two cousins in North India
Alankrita Srivastava’s Dolly Kitty Aur Woh Chamakte Sitare will be released on Netflix on September 18. The film stars Konkona Sen Sharma and Bhumi Pednekar as two cousins ‘who will do whatever it takes to break the invisible shackles that are keeping them from the ideal lives they envision’. Set in Greater Noida, the film is written by Alankrita and produced by Balaji Telefilms. The cast also includes Kubbra Sait, Karan Kundra, Amol Parashar and Vikrant Massey.
Speaking about her character, Konkona shares, “Dolly’s life is one we see so often — a bickering wife who is not satisfied with her husband’s unambitious ways, the mother of two young boys who she barely understands, all while dreaming of a life of luxury that is far beyond her reach. While she believes herself to be quite the rebel, she is blissfully unaware of how deeply conditioned she is in certain ways. It’s her journey of realisation and to freedom that makes the story a fun yet heartwarming ride.”
Bhumi’s Kajal aka Kitty is a quintessential small-town girl who comes to the big city, expecting all her dreams to come true. Life, however, has other plans. “With a head full of dreams and aspirations along with a carefree attitude, Kitty embarks on a new journey with her sister. She discovers herself and evolves as a person, all the while stumbling and tripping along the way, to finally understand what it really takes to make her dreams a reality,” Bhumi says.
This is Alankrita’s third feature as director. She has previously helmed Lipstick Under my Burkha (2017) and the romantic-comedy Turning 30 (2011).
