Alia Bhatt, still riding the questionable wave of her National Award win, isn’t resting on her laurels, it seems. She’s gearing up for her next venture, both as a leading actress and as a producer, in Vasan Bala’s upcoming film, Jigra. Perhaps aiming to silence her critics or simply to flex her cinematic muscles further? Only time will tell.
The film’s announcement wasn’t your regular press release. No, it was a unique anime-style video that showcased Alia navigating a bustling city, backpack strapped on. As curious as that was, the real highlight was the narrative. We hear her assuring her brother of her protective stance because of the rakhi he dons. It’s clear: Jigra aims to highlight the profound depth of sibling bonds wrapped in layers of courage and commitment.
The brains behind the story, Debashish Irengbam, might just be the hero we’re awaiting. And while we’re dropping names, let’s not forget the posse of producers – Karan Johar, Apoorva Mehta, and Somen Mishra. Adding to the film’s allure are the melodious compositions by Achint Thakkar and the visual magic woven by cinematographer Swapnil S. Sonawane.
Set for a grand unveiling on September 27, 2024, Jigra promises to be a cinematic treat. Or at least, another topic for the critics. Either way, it’s evident: Jigra isn’t just a story—it’s Alia’s declaration of resilience in the face of skepticism.
