Darlings is a black comedy that does not shy away from tackling a sensitive and important subject- domestic violence. As Alia Bhatt herself has stated, the film makes sure to blend comedy in a way that does not take away from the seriousness of the subject. Shefali Shah, who essays the role of Alia’s mother in the film, opened up about one of the most memorable and hilarious scenes from the film.
During the launch event of the film’s first song, La Ilaaj, Shefali revealed that one of the most memorable moments she had while working on the film was during a scene featuring herself, Alia and Roshan Mathew. The scene in question involved the trio in a police station, and part of the scene was also shown in the film’s trailer as well. Shefali said that she had found the particular scene hilarious.
La Ilaaj is the first song from the film’s soundtrack. The song’s launch event was held in Delhi on Tuesday. In addition to Shefali, Alia, Roshan, Vijay Varma, Vishal Bhardwaj and director Jasmeet K Reen also attended the event. Vishal had composed the song, which was sung by Arijit Singh and had lyrics penned by Gulzar.
Check out the song below:
Opening up about the song, Vishal had said that he had tried to match the strong, yet delicate emotions of the movie through the film’s songs. Hoping that the song would resonate with viewers, Vishal said he’d tried to compose something fresh and soulful in the form of La Ilaaj.
The upcoming film will mark Alia’s debut production venture, under the banner of her production house Eternal Sunshine Productions. Gauri Khan and Gaurav Verma of Red Chillies Entertainment are also producers on the film.
Darlings will start streaming on Netflix from August 5.
