Alia Bhatt, who recently announced her production venture Jigra which also features Bhatt as the main lead, said that she turned producer to tell stories that evoke emotions and leave an impact. Bhatt launched her own production company named Eternal Sunshine Productions in early 2019.
Her first film as a producer was Darlings, which released in 2020 and also starred Vijay Varma and Shefali Shah in the lead.
With Jigra being her second production, Bhatt said, “I believe stories are everywhere, and stories are everything! I turned producer with Eternal Sunshine to tell some of these stories, ones that evoke emotions and leave an impact.”
The actress said, “Our first production, Darlings, got so much love that it was exciting and overwhelming at the same time. And just a little over a year later, we are ready to launch our second production -- Jigra, a beautiful story of courage, passion and determination. I hope to consistently support compelling narratives that are authentic, and enduringly timeless and work with brilliant creative minds to bring them alive.”
Jigra is directed by Vasan Bala. The film is slated to release on September 27, 2024. The film is produced by Karan Johar, Apoorva Mehta, Alia Bhatt and Somen Mishra. Other details related to the film are still under wraps.
