The film, backed by Suuraj Sinngh and Shraddha Agrawal under the banner Blive Productions and Take 23 Studios Production, is currently in pre-production.

Revathy, who has helmed films like the National Award winning Mitr, My Friend and 2004 drama Phir Milenge, said Kajol is the perfect choice to play the part of Sujata.

“Sujata’s journey in The Last Hurrah is extremely close to my heart. It’s not only relatable but also inspiring. When Suuraj, Shraddha and I were discussing this film, Kajol was the first person who came to our mind. Her soft yet energetic eyes and her beautiful smile will make you believe that anything is possible and that is exactly how Sujata is. I am very excited for this collaboration and to be working with Kajol for this heartening story,” the 55-year-old filmmaker said in a statement.

Kajol, who made her digital debut with the Netflix film Tribhanga earlier this year, said she instantly connected with her character the moment she heard the story of The Last Hurrah.
