After impressing the audience and critics alike with their literally incredible film Lipstick Under My Burkha, producer Ekta Kapoor and filmmaker Alankrita Shrivastava are joining hands again for yet another woman-centric movie. The project is expected to roll by the end of the year.
Alankrita says that since Lipstick Under My Burkha did well, a reunion with Ekta seemed like a natural progression. “Lipstick… went so well and we had a great time working on it. So, a reunion seemed like a natural progression. Ekta has a lot of courage to take risks and she is the right person for the kind of films I make,” she explained.
Adding further, Alankrita reveals that her next film will be shot entirely in North India and is about two women in a coming-of-age story. “I’m still working on the screenplay, so I’d rather complete it before saying more on the subject. For now, I’m excited about exploring the lives of both protagonists and the roles women have in the changing India of today. The future is female, not just in India but the world over.”
Ekta Kapoor took to Twitter to share her excitement over teaming up with Alankrita Again. “Back at it again! Very excited to be taking this new journey with @alankrita601!
The casting process for the film is underway.
