Shah Rukh Khan Announces Alia Bhatt’s Darlings, Ranbir Kapoor’s Animal Gets A Release Date

Monday started with some great news coming for all the Bollywood lovers. Today, Shah Rukh Khan took to his social media page to announce a new project he is backing – Darlings. The film stars Alia Bhatt, Shefali Shah, Vijay Varma and Roshan Matthew. SRK shared an announcement promo of this exciting film.

On his Twitter page, Shah Rukh Khan captioned the promo, “Life is tough Darlings, but so are you….both! Unleashing our #Darlings onto the world….Caution is advisable. PS : yeh comedy thodi dark hai…

Earlier, there were reports that the film will focus on the interesting mother-daughter trying to figure out a way in everything crazy happening in their lives. The story will be set in Mumbai with characters belonging to a conservating lower-middle-class background. In the promo, we read the warning – “Auraton Ka Apmaan Aapki Sehat Ke Liye Bahut Haanikaarak Ho Sakta Hai” (Disrespecting women will prove dangerous for you).

Along with Shah Rukh Khan’s Red Chillies Entertainment, Darlings will also be produced by Alia Bhatt’s production house. Today, the Gangubai Kathiawadi actress launched her production house called Eternal Sunshine Productions. Director Jasmeet K Reen will helm the film which teases us ‘Yeh comedy thodi dark hai‘ (this comedy is a little dark). The promo looks good and we wonder if SRK will have a cameo in it or not.

Check out Shah Rukh Khan’s tweet on Darlings announcement below:

Another big news for movie lovers is about Ranbir Kapoor-starrer Animal. A few months ago, we got to know that the Sanju actor is collaborating with Kabir Singh director Sandeep Reddy Vanga. The film also stars Anil Kapoor, Parineeti Chopra and Bobby Deol. Well, the film has not got an official release date.

Ranbir Kapoor-starrer Animal will be releasing on Dusshera next year. The film will be produced by Bhushan Kumar, Pranay Reddy Vanga, Murad Khetani & Krishan Kumar.

Anil Kapoor took to his Twitter page and confirmed the news. He share a small teaser of the same. Kapoor wrote, “ANIMAL Coming Dussehra 2022! #RanbirKapoor @ParineetiChopra @thedeol Directed by @imvangasandeep Animal is produced by #BhushanKumar
@VangaPranay @MuradKhetani #KrishanKumar #TSeriesFilms @VangaPictures @Cine1Studios @TSeries

Well, this is great news for all Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt fans. While fans are waiting to see the real-life couple together in their fantasy adventure Brahmastra, the announcement of their next promising projects together will definitely make them happy. Talking about Brahmastra, directed by Ayan Mukerji, the film also stars Amitabh Bachchan, Nagarjuna Akkineni, Dimple Kapadia and Mouni Roy. The film was supposed to release last year in December. However, due to lockdown, the makers pushed it ahead. So far, no new release date is revealed.

Apart from this, Alia Bhatt recently shared the teaser of her 2021 film, Gangubai Kathiawadi. Directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali, the latest addition to the cast is Ajay Devgn who started shooting last week. The film focuses on the life of Gangubai Kothewali, the madam of a brothel in Kamathipura and it is based on a chapter from Hussain Zaidi’s book Mafia Queens of Mumbai. The Alia-starrer is slated to release on July 30, 2021.

Talking about Ranbir Kapoor, he has YRF’s period drama Shamshera in his kitty too. This is the first time Kapoor is a part of a period drama story. Also starring Sanjay Dutt and Vaani Kapoor, it is directed by Karan Malhotra. Shamshera is expected to release on June 25, 2021.
