Sanya Malhotra

Sanya Malhotra will next be seen alongside Anant Joshi in the woman-led dramedy ‘Kathal.’

The film is set in a small village and tells the storey of a local politician whose cherished jackfruits (‘Kathals’) go missing, with Sanya Malhotra as a young police officer on the case. Mahima is invested in the case because she wants to prove her worth by solving it.

Yashowardhan Mishra, a first-time filmmaker, is directing the movie, which he also co-wrote with legendary, award-winning writer Ashok Mishra. Guneet Monga, CEO of Sikhya Entertainment and producer of films such as ‘Haraamkhor,’ ‘The Lunchbox,’ and the Academy Award-winning Best Documentary (Short Subject) ‘Period – End of Sentence,’ gave his thoughts.

“We are absolutely thrilled to embark on another exciting journey with Sanya Malhotra and none better than with our partners, Balaji & Netflix. Helming this joyride of satire & comedy, titled Kathal is our director Yashowardhan Mishra.”

She added, “Yashowardhan & Ashok Mishra, the writers and Imagineers behind ‘Kathal’ roped us into its magical world from day one (& page one) and we can’t wait for it to come to life for everyone to enjoy! Kathal, like the fruit itself, will leave you with a sweet feeling that we’ll cherish in the coming times and we are so excited for everyone to see Sanya in a completely new avatar in this unconventional story.”

Ruchikaa Kapoor Sheikh, Co-Producer and Executive Vice President at Balaji Telefilms said, “‘Kathal’ is one such quirky tale set in heartland India and toplined by the talented Sanya Malhotra. Debutant director-writer Yashowardhan’s take on this ‘bizarre’ true story is full of humour and introspection. After the resounding success of Pagglait, we’re excited to partner with Sikhya & Netflix to tell stories with an Indian heart for global audiences.”

After ‘Ludo,’ ‘Pagglait,’ and ‘Meenakshi Sundareshwar,’ Sanya Malhotra will cooperate with Netflix for the fourth time.
