We know that Alia Bhatt is collaborating with filmmaker Vasan Bala for a movie titled Jigra. Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions and Bhatt’s Eternal Sunshine Productions are producing the film, and it is set to be released on September 27, 2024. Newcomer Vedang Raina, who recently made his Bollywood debut in The Archies, will also star alongside Bhatt. Here’s what Raina feels to be a part of the film.

Was Vedang Raina nervous during the shoot of Jigra?

In the talk with Lifestyle Asia, Vedang reminisced about his collaboration with the acclaimed actress Alia Bhatt in Jigra. Recalling his first day of shooting, he confessed to experiencing a hint of nervousness. Vedang said, “It was a scene with Alia, and I wouldn’t say I was nervous because I had done my homework but just the fact that it was with her, I felt some kind of nervousness.”

He emphasized the importance of Jigra in shaping his career trajectory. Vedang told the news outlet, “I am not dismissing The Archies by saying that it was a warm-up, but it felt like a warm-up to what I did in Jigra and I put myself through a kind of personal journey. I am excited for it.”

What is special about Jigra?

Alia Bhatt's production company, Eternal Sunshine Productions, is looking forward to releasing its second film, Jigra, following the success of Darlings on Netflix in 2022. Bhatt recently made her Hollywood debut with the streaming giant's Heart of Stone. Looking back at her career, from her breakthrough role in Dharma Productions' Student of the Year in 2012 to now producing a film with them, Bhatt feels a sense of completion.


Last year, while sharing the title announcement of Jigra, Alia wrote on Instagram, “Every day is a different day exciting, challenging (and a little scary) not just as an actor but also as a producer as we bring this film to life, and I CANNOT wait to share more as we move forward. JIGRA - in cinemas on 27th September 2024.”
