Actress Kajol, who was last seen in 2015's Dilwale, is all set to make a comeback on the silver screen. The 43-year old actress will portray the character of a single parent in the upcoming untitled venture. The film is adapted from a Gujarati play, Beta Kaagdo and will be written by Ship of Theseus director Anand Gandhi. The plot of the movie revolves around a mother-son relationship and the drama will be produced by Kajol's husband Ajay Devgn along with Abhinav Shukla. National Award winning filmmaker Pradeep Sarkar, who last helmed Rani Mukerji's 2014 Mardaani, will direct this emotional drama film.
While talking to Mumbai Mirror, director Pradeep Sarkar informed, “I was offered the script around four months ago. It took me a while to understand the Gujarati tone but eventually, I fell in love with this extremely emotional story which boasts of some really strong characters and there’s a chance of people getting really close to them,” he also confessed that he has been interacting with lots of Gujaratis in the recent times to understand the core of the film. The director has already started the prep for the film and will soon start reading sessions with Kajol. He also praised the actress and said, “She’s an awesome actress who picks up a role and owns it. She has her own style, charm and a particular way of talking that enhances the character.”
Pradeep Sarkar also pointed out that he is developing the film in the best possible way, “I am getting involved in the dialogue and character-building as there are a few insights that I want to incorporate to make the film more endearing. This is not like Parineeta, where everything was detailed, this is more free-flowing, a character and music-driven film.”
The film is set to go on floors in January next year and will be extensively shot in the outskirts of Mumbai.
