Kajal Aggarwal to headline Uma
The film marks the directorial debut of ad filmmaker Tathagata Singha
Kajal Aggarwal, who was most recently seen in Mumbai Saga, is set to star in yet another Hindi film, Uma. Billed as a slice-of-life family film, Uma follows the drama that ensues when the titular character, a stranger, joins the multifaced members of the family over the course of a wedding.
Speaking of the film, Kajal said, "I look forward to commencing the shoot as soon as the situation around us gets better. I’m always keen to give a green signal to scripts that are fun, entertaining yet challenging for me as an actor. I’m excited to share Uma with all of you!"
The film, which marks the directorial debut of ad filmmaker Tathagata Singha, is being bankrolled by Avikesh Ghosh of AVMA Media in association with Mantraraj Paliwal of Miraj Group. The makers of the family drama are planning to shoot the film in the second half of this year, adhering to all the Covid-19 protocols.
Meanwhile, Kajal has multiple films in the pipeline such as Acharya, Hey Sinamika, Ghosty, Indian 2, and an untitled film with Nagarjuna, in different stages of production.
