Alia Bhatt’s Darlings co-starring Shefali Shah, Vijay Varma and Roshan Mathew is set only a few days away from its big Netflix release. The actor’s new production house, Eternal Sunshine, is backing the movie. The actor has now opened up about how she chose the name.
Talking to the media during the movie’s trailer launch earlier today, the actor said “There is a film called Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, which is one of my favourite movies. But that is not the reason. The reason is that movies are eternal and I love sunshine. Even if you see me on Instagram, I am always using the sun emoji. I love the sun, I love sunshine and I think the warmth cinema gives us is eternal.”
The actor also revealed that Shah Rukh Khan called her after she decided to produce the film and said that he usually does not produce movies, but would love to co-produce Darlings with her. He said that it would be one for the memories.
The makers released the movie’s trailer today, and it gives us a glimpse into what to expect from the black comedy. The movie features Alia Bhatt playing a wife who hatches a nefarious plan and has her husband captive in their house. The trailer also hints that elements of a thriller and drama will also be seen in Darlings.
Co-written by Jasmeet K Reen and Parveez Sheikh, the movie also marks Reen’s first full-length feature film. The movie is backed by Gauri Khan, Alia, and Gaurav Verma and will be heading straight to Netflix. The movie is set to start streaming on the platform from August 5.
