Sakshi Tanwar, Divya Dutta and Saiyami Kher will be headlining the forthcoming film.
After directing short films, Tahira Kashyap is all set to helm her full feature film. Titled Sharmaji Ki Beti, for the movie, the writer-turned-filmmaker has roped in three talented ladies to headline the movie. The film features Sakshi Tanwar, Divya Dutta and Saiyami Kher in the lead roles. Tahira announced the film on her social media pages with a heartfelt message showcasing her excitement for the project.
Tahira started by writing, "Feeling so numb! Can’t believe it’s finally happening. I feel only gratitude."
She further stated, "Eternally grateful to all those people who are bringing my dream, the story so close to my heart to life. It’s too good to be true but I guess ‘winter always turns to spring’. This film has seen me through various states and stages of life but all that I have learned from my practice, my mother and my partner is to never give up. I was supported by like-minded people who were there through and through with me on this journey."
While Applause Entertainment and Ellipsis Entertainment are co-producing Sharmaji Ki Beti. Talking about the plot of the film, it's a 'warm and real peeks into the lives of urban women with the common surname of Sharma'.
The film 'promises to strike a chord with people from all walks of life, is a story of mothers, daughters, partners, friends and ultimately womanhood'.
The makers also said that the film is the perfect antidote to the default male gaze that has been dominating popular cinema for a long time.
Tahira has earlier directed two short films titled Toffee and Pinni. She was also a part of the Netflix anthology Feels Like Ishq in which she helmed one short Quaranteen Crush.
She has also authored books such as I Promise... and The 12 Commandments Of Being A Woman.
