Alia Bhatt shared a photo of the script of Darlings to imply that work on her first production venture has already begun.

Alia Bhatt had announced earlier this year that she is launching her own production house Eternal Sunshine Productions. She will be co-producing their first film Darlings alongwith Shah Rukh Khan‘s Red Chillies Entertainment. Alia will be acting alongside Shefali Shah, Vijay Varma and Roshan Mathew the upcoming dark comedy, billed as a story of a quirky mother-daughter duo.

The actress on Monday posted a story on Instagram that showed she had begun work on the film. Alia shared a photo of the script of the film, and said, “My date for today."


This is the 27-year-old actor’s first production venture. Alia Bhatt took to Instagram in March and shared the film’s announcement teaser, which opens with a “statutory warning" that offending women can be dangerous for one’s health.

“I am really excited to be part of ‘Darlings’, it’s a powerful story with a lot of humour and doses of dark comedy. I am thrilled to have Darlings as my first film as producer, that too in collaboration with my favourite, Shah Rukh Khan and Red Chillies," she had said in a statement.

“Darlings" marks directorial debut of writer Jasmeet K Reen. Set in Mumbai against the backdrop of a conservative lower middle-class neighbourhood, the film traces the lives of two women as they find courage and love in exceptional circumstances.

The actress also seems to have embarked on a fitness journey for 40 days, as is evident from her next story on Instagram. Using the hashtag #sohfit40daychallenge, Alia shared a mirror selfie and said “Let’s do this."

Alia has also recently wrapped up the shooting of Gangubai Kathiawadi, her film with Sanjay Leela Bhansali.
