Film producer Ekta Kapoor, who is currently winning hearts with her choices of films that she is helming is working on a new one. Kapoor's previously presented films like Lipstick Under My Burkha, Veere Di Wedding amongst others that won hearts of many. Now Kapoor has joined hands with one of the most relevant voices in Indian cinema, Guneet Monga who even went to the Oscars. The two will come together for a film titled Pagglait. Interestingly, the two ladies have roped in Sanya Malhotra to play the lead in the movie.
Directed by Umesh Bist, the film is a light-hearted entertainer with its heart in the right place. Ekta Kapoor who will be helming the project in a statement said, "Guneet is one of the most relevant voices in Indian cinema today. When I heard the very concept of the film, I knew we had to do this together."
While talking about the interesting project, Guneet shared, "Jab ladki log ko akal aati hai na toh log unhe ‘pagglait’ kehte hai". She further added, "We are glad to bring a concept as quirky as ‘Pagglait’ on screen with Sanya Malhotra leading the film and a powerhouse like Balaji Telefilms backing this one. Our film is a story of a young girl as she discovers her purpose and identity amidst looming questions about love and belonging in the neo modern small-town India."
The first schedule of ‘Pagglait’ kicked off in Lucknow. A picture of Sanya Malhotra who was last seen in Badhaai Ho!, holding the clapboard of the movie has been shared on Twitter. Here check it out:
