After having made her mark as an actor in ‘Dangal’, Sanya Malhotra is simply raring to go. Post the success of ‘Dangal’, there has been no looking back for Sanya Malhotra, whose latest release was ‘Kathal’. For the unversed, the satirical comedy ‘Kathal’ has been directed by Yashowardhan Mishra and co-produced by Guneet Monga Kapoor’s Sikhya Entertainment and Ekta Kapoor’s Balaji Telefilms.

Speaking about the runaway success of the film, Sanya Malhotra said, "I’ve been overwhelmed with the love and response to ‘Kathal’. Every day on social media I’m tagged for such bizarre stories happening around us. This is such a fitting social commentary and it’s fascinating to see our fiction being reflected so relevantly in times now. It’s so absurd, and every time someone says, ‘This should have been a movie’, now it is! Kathal is on Netflix. Made by some really special people."

On the other hand, director Yashowardhan Mishra said, "Kathal’ is a colourful bouquet of the bizarre that we see all around us nowadays. We wanted to make a sharp Social Satire which gently nudges the audiences towards critical thinking about the world we live in. It’s been really rewarding seeing the response and love for this quirky film of ours, and it’s been an honour being able to tell this peculiar story based on true-ish events alongside Sikhya Entertainment, Balaji Telefilms and a stellar cast including Sanya Malhotra, Anant V Joshi, Rajpal Yadav, Raghubir Yadav, Vijay Raaz and more."

On her part, the film’s producer Guneet Monga Kapoor said, "When Yashowardhan Mishra and Ashok Mishra approached us with the idea of ‘Kathal’, Achin and I instantly knew this was a project Sikhya Entertainment could voice and lead. We made ‘Kathal’ with the hope of speaking about the absurdity of our reality, and with the headlines, we're seeing now, it’s all the more validating that sometimes reality is stranger than fiction."

Besides Sanya Malhotra, the film ‘Kathal’ also stars Anant V Joshi, Vijay Raaz, Rajpal Yadav, Raghubir Yadav, Brijendra Kala, and Neha Saraf, in prominent roles. The film is presently being streamed on Netflix.
