Alia Bhatt has finally given us a glimpse into her world of Darlings. The actor took to social media to share the first teaser of her upcoming film, which also stars Vijay Varma, Roshan Mathew, and Shefali Shah.
Alia and Shefali are portrayed as a mysterious duo in the one minute and 40 second teaser. Both the women are seen sitting inside a police station, trying to prove themselves innocent. Alia narrates the famous Scorpio-frog tale in the background hinting at deception in the story.
Darlings, directed by Jasmeet K Reen, is a dark comedy. It is set to stream on Netflix soon. The film is Alia’s maiden production venture and her debut on OTT. As the actress carries on with her eerie story about how a person will never leave his/ her basic essence like the ‘bichhoo‘ who couldn’t resist stinging the frog, we see confusion arising in the background and secrets taking over the screen.
At one point, we see Alia shedding her simple avatar and getting ready in a bright red one-shouldered dress with a high ponytail and matching red lips – giving a glimpse of her shady world.
Vishal Bhardwaj composed the music for Darlings, and Gulzar wrote the lyrics. The film will be released on August 5.
In addition to Brahmastra, which will be released in September and stars Ranbir Kapoor, Alia has other highly anticipated films in the works. Along with Gal Gadot, she is currently filming her Hollywood debut, “Heart of Stone.” Along with Priyanka Chopra Jonas and Katrina Kaif, Alia also has Jee Le Zara in her filmography. Farhan Akhtar is the director of the movie.
