Anushka Sharma and brother Karnesh’s next production, Qala, marks the debut of Irrfan’s son Babil. The Netflix film, helmed by Anvitaa Dutt, also features Tripti Dimri and Swastika Mukherjee. Sharma had collaborated with Dutt and Dimri on Bulbbul (2020), which also dropped digitally. The director describes Qala as a “heart-breaking story about a daughter who craves her mother’s love.”
Earlier this year, Babil had admitted that he is keen to follow in his late father’s footsteps.
Netflix also revealed the film’s first teaser, featuring behind the scenes footage from the shoot.
Srishti Behl Arya, Director of International Original Film, Netflix India, said the streamer is thrilled to chronicle an “intricate tale of a woman” with Qala.
