Actor Sanya Malhotra shared her upcoming movie, Pagglait’s teaser on her birthday. The actress is quite popular for her characters in off-beat films like Dangal and Badhaai Ho. In her new movie, she's the one playing an unusual character – that of a widow who is unable to mourn her husband’s death.
The teaser is a sneak peek into a middle-class family based in an Indian town, where people around Sanya expect her to be sad about the death of her husband - Astik. The video starts with her brother-in-law getting tonsured, who complains that even in death his brother managed to create trouble for him – as he had to go bald – and for his bhabhi, who's a widow.
Meanwhile, an unaffected Sandhya – Sanya’s character - reads out obituaries from her late husband’s friend and family. Upon being asked by a concerned friend, about her behaviour, Sandhya confesses that she neither feels like crying nor she feels like giving up food – somethings she did when her cat died while she was a kid.
Watch the teaser:
Directed by Umesh Bist, the quirky comedy will release on March 26, on Netflix. The movie also stars Sayani Gupta, Ashutosh Rana, Raghubir Yadav, Sheeba Chaddha, and Meghna Malik, among others. Taking it to Twitter, the actress posted the trailer with the caption, “Emotions in this household are either running high or not at all. Pagglait, premieres 26th March, only on Netflix. (sic)”
Her post on Instagram with the same caption and teaser garnered a lot of praise from her friends in the industry. While Radhika Madan gave a shout-out and commented, “Wooohooooooo!!!!(sic)” to the post, Kriti Kharbanda said, “Bahut sahi!(sic)”
The producers of the project are Ekta Kapoor and Guneet Monga.
