Backed by Yoodlee Films, Saregama's film production unit, Ajji is a dark take on the fairytale Red Riding Hood. The film's story is based on a nine-year-old girl, who is denied justice from the society and later her 65-year-old grandmother takes brutal revenge.
The film has been appreciated at several film festivals like Busan Film Festival 2017 and MAMI International Film Festival.
It stars Sushama Deshpande, Sharvani Suryavanshi and Abhishek Banerjee.(This story has not been edited by News18 staff and is published from a syndicated news agency feed - IANS)
