New Delhi: Alia Bhatt’s much-awaited Darlings, produced by Red Chillies Entertainment and Eternal Sunshine Productions is set to premiere on Netflix this year. This will be Alia Bhatt’s first co-production along with Gauri Khan, and Gaurav Verma. Apart from Alia Bhatt, the film stars Shefali Shah, Vijay Varma, and Roshan Mathew in lead roles. Besides, Darlings will bring together two great stalwarts of the music industry namely music composer Vishal Bharadwaj and lyricist Gulzar.

The movie is a dark comedy that will focus on the lives of a mother-daughter duo trying to find their place in Mumbai, seeking courage and love in exceptional circumstances while fighting against all the odds.

Netflix India also shared a video where the prime cast members avoid the question of whether Darlings is coming on Netflix or not. Captioning the video, the OTT platform wrote, “IS DARLINGS COMING TO NETFLIX?? 👀
If you ask Alia Bhatt, Shefali Shah, Vijay Varma and Roshan Mathew, you might not get an answer 😅”
