Tumhari Sulu director Suresh Triveni has teamed up with lead actor Vidya Balan once again for Jalsa. The film, which also stars Shefali Shah, is being described as a “captivating tale of conflict, as shown through the life of a top-line journalist and her cook.”
The trailer promises a gritty crime drama with high stakes involved. Shefali plays the role of a grief-stricken mother whose daughter has died an untimely, brutal death. In her time of trouble, it is Vidya’s character who stands in solidarity with Shefali’s Rukhsana who just wants justice for her slain daughter.
The official description of the film reads, “A hit and run of an 18-year-old girl becomes the hub of a wheel that sets into motion many a spoke – a journalist, a raging mother, a cop and a system all caught in an ethical dilemma. Questions raised only to realize that the truth is rarely pure and never simple.”
The film also features Rohini Hattangadi, Surya Kasibhatla, Kashish Rizwan, Shafeen Patel, Vidhatri Bandi, Ghanshyam Lalsa, Shrikant Mohan Yadav, and Junaid Khan with Manav Kaul.
Jalsa will have a global premiere on Amazon Prime Video on March 18th in India, and across 240 countries and territories worldwide.
Jalsa is jointly produced by Bhushan Kumar, Krishan Kumar, Vikram Malhotra, Shikhaa Sharma, and Suresh Triveni. It is written by Prajwal Chandrashekar and Suresh Triveni.
