Alia Bhatt, Vijay Varma start filming for Darlings
The film also stars Shefali Shah and Roshan Mathew
Alia Bhatt's debut production Darlings has gone on floors. Set in Mumbai, the film unfolds in a conservative lower-middle-class neighbourhood, tracing the lives of two women who live there. Besides Alia, the film also stars Shefali Shah, Vijay Varma and Roshan Mathew.
Darlings is directed by Jasmeet K Reen and written by her and Parveez Sheikh. The film is co-produced by Shah Rukh Khan’s Red Chillies Entertainment with Alia’s Eternal Sunshine Productions.
"Day one of DARLINGS! my first film as a producer but I will always be an actor first and forever (in this case a very nervous actor)," wrote Alia, reflecting on her state of mind before each shoot.
Co-star Vijay Verma shared he's excited to be back on set. Posting a picture with the film's clapper board, Vijay wrote, "So happy and excited to be back on a set again! Anddddd for a film that I have been sooo stoked about for the longest time. #Darlings in production now. Wish me luck coz I'll need it to match the roaring talents of my fellow artists on this one."
