Mumbai: Actor Alia Bhatt has started her preparation for Shah Rukh Khan’s next home production film Darlings also starring Shefali Shah.
Billed as a story of a quirky mother-daughter duo, Darlings is set in Mumbai against the backdrop of a conservative lower middle-class neighbourhood. The film traces the lives of two women as they find courage and love in exceptional circumstances.
Taking to her Instagram stories on Thursday (June 17), 28-year-old actor shared a picture of the script. “Prep,” Bhatt captioned the post.
The dark-comedy, which marks Bhatt’s foray into film production, is the directorial debut of writer Jasmeet K Reen. The film also stars Vijay Varma and Roshan Mathew.
Besides Darlings, Bhatt will be seen in Ayan Mukerji’s Brahmastra, Sanjay Leela Bhansali-directed Gangubai Kathiawadi and S S Rajamouli’s RRR.
