Recent accomplishments by Alia Bhatt seem to indicate that she is aware of what commercial moviegoers like to watch. Her debut production, Darlings, has drawn a lot of interest. The film also stars Roshan Mathew, who was brought in to play a crucial part, in addition to the elite cast that includes Bhatt, Shefali Shah, and Vijay Varma.

During an interaction with Mid Day, Bhatt commented on her choice to choose the actor, saying that when director Jasmeet K Reen was casting for the film, she had given her Roshan's audition and stated she was choosing him. The actor thought his audition was impressive, and one of her favourite parts of the movie is a sequence with him that takes place in the living room. It was a challenging scenario for a single actor to perform. Roshan gave a video call audition for the role and was excellent. He has the same level of vigour as the other actors. As the Choked actor spent time in Mumbai with friends, he speaks Hindi well.

According to Bhatt, since the crew needed to be in sync to properly do the act, it was essential to enlist an actor who could match their energy. She said that Darlings is an eventful movie, so the actors had to work well together, and the most crucial factor was that.

Darlings examines the lives of a quirky mother-daughter pair who, despite navigating through extraordinary situations, find strength and love as they seek to find their way in the world. It is set against the backdrop of a conservative lower-middle-class neighbourhood in Mumbai.

The film is produced by Gauri Khan, Alia Bhatt, and Gaurav Verma under the umbrellas of Red Chillies Entertainment and Eternal Sunshine Productions. It is co-written and directed by Jasmeet K. Reen in her feature film debut, from a script by Parveez Sheikh. The Netflix release date is set for August 5, 2022.
