Film and television studio Lionsgate has made a quiet but impactful entry into India. Living up to the pedigree of compelling content, Lionsgate over the past year has intended to cater to both contemporary Indian audiences as well as its global audience on the STARZ streaming service, Lionsgate Play. Since last year, the studio has released a distinct slate of films, ranging from an urban slice-of-life comedy like Hiccups & Hookups to the intense young adult drama Jugaadistan or the bromantic hangover of four boys in Feels Like Home. Lionsgate in India selects stories that resonate with a diverse global audience.

Neetu Kapoor, Sunny Kaushal, and Shraddha Srinath step it up a notch in Lionsgate India Studios' debut feature film. The lovely and understandable bond between a mother and her son will be depicted in this nameless coming-of-age story. The film explores the importance of families, communication, and memories as well as their function in making us grow up, using humour as its central conceit. The Milind Dhaimade-directed movie will be a masterpiece that will leave viewers clamouring for more family dramas.

As part of its worldwide expansion strategy, Lionsgate continues to be bullish on investments in India, according to Rohit Jain, MD of South Asia and Networks-Emerging Markets Asia. He said that India's Lionsgate Studios is excited to announce the release of its first Hindi movie. Each part has been flawlessly cast with Milind at the forefront to convey this lovely tale that viewers will like. Expect significant announcements from the Lionsgate India Studios desk soon, as they are moving quickly and have 8–10 large projects in the works within a year.

For director Milind Dhaimade, it's really important who is collaborating with whom in developing the film, as a film is formed even before it gets on the floor. The components needed to assemble the movie have all already been chosen. The filmmaker believes the film's vision from Lionsgate India Studios, in addition to a fantastic cast, will be incredibly novel in this regard. No matter where one lives, the mother-son bond will be relatable, and their casting will make the film more accessible to Indian audiences.


Neetu Kapoor stated that she fell in love with the story when she read it. It explores a different side that gives the rom-com genre a distinctive tone by going beyond the typical mother-son scenario. The actor is thrilled to be a part of the inaugural Lionsgate Studios production in a film that he hopes will move people and stay in their hearts.

While Sunny Kaushal said that the instant he read the script, he knew it was a special film that he just wanted to be a part of. It is a tribute to all mothers, their goals, and their selfless deeds. Working on this unique project with Neetu, Lionsgate India Studios, and Milind is something he's truly looking forward to.


Shraddha Srinath praised the storyline as sweet, warm, and beautiful. While reading it, she seems to have been grinning broadly. Because they are all too busy viewing and producing dark, thrilling, and mind-bending entertainment, there aren't enough movies that focus on moments, relationships, and the simplicity of life. Even before she met Milind, she had thoroughly enjoyed seeing Tu Hai Mera Sunday, one of his earlier works. The actor is overjoyed that Lionsgate India Studios recognises the film for what it is: a masterpiece. She can't wait to bring the character to life on screen and work some magic. Shraddha is very grateful she got to work on this project.
