Jaadugar, Netflix's forthcoming sports dramedy film, will launch on the service on July 15, 2022, according to the company. Jaadugar is a story about a small-time magician named Meenu who has no athletic ability and must prove himself in a prestigious inter-colonial football competition to marry the love of his life. Only two things stand in his way: the girl doesn't love him back, and his team hasn't won a game in years! In this uplifting sports comedy, friendships are tested and hearts mend as love meets magic.

Jitendra Kumar, Javed Jaafery, and Arushi Sharma star in the film, which is directed by Sameer Saxena and produced by Posham PA Pictures. 

Director and producer Sameer Saxena said of the film that Jaadugar is their attempt to provide a completely different take on sports and romance. They have tried to build a story that's high on entertainment and appeals to a wide audience by including magic as a significant element in the film. The makers hope that with Netflix as their partner, the passion with which they filmed the film transcends to screens around the world.

Amit Golani and Saurabh Khanna of Posham Pa Pictures said they are tremendously enthusiastic about their debut film, Jaadugar, a lighthearted narrative set in a tiny town. Sameer Saxena, Biswapati Sarkar, and Jitendra Kumar are all fans of the story. The three collaborated on a film for the first time, despite having a long list of successful projects to their name. The film's association with a global platform like Netflix has broadened its scope, and Posham Pa is ecstatic to see its premiere work on the service.

According to Biswapati Sarkar, writer and producer, Jaadugar is a one-of-a-kind blend of love, magic, and football. It's a family-friendly film that one should watch with their friends and family. Unlike sports films that glorify exceptional sportsmen, Jaadugar honours ordinary people who participate in sports for the love of the game rather than for glory or fame. They are thrilled to be working with Netflix on this remarkable film, and they can't wait for audiences all across the world to see the "magic" of Jaadugar.
