Actors turned producers, Richa Chadha and Ali Fazal, are all set to present their debut production, “Girls Will Be Girls,” at the esteemed Sundance Film Festival. The film, competing in the World Dramatic Cinema category, is scheduled for its world premiere on January 20th. Richa and Ali, excited about showcasing their project on an international platform, have headed to Park City, Utah, for the prestigious event.
“Girls Will Be Girls” is a collaboration between Richa Chadha and Ali Fazal’s production houses – Pushing Buttons Studios, Blink Digital, Crawling Angel Films, and Dolce Vita Films. Directed by Shuchi Talati, the film unfolds a compelling narrative set in a boarding school in a small Himalayan hill town in northern India. The story revolves around the rebellious awakening of a 16-year-old girl (Preeti Panigrahi) intricately woven with her mother’s unfulfilled coming-of-age experience (Kani Kusruti). The cast also includes Jitin Gulati and Kesav Binoy Kiron in pivotal roles.
Expressing her excitement, Richa Chadha said, “Getting through in such a competitive cinema festival is itself a big deal. I have high hopes from Shuchi as a director and the rank newcomers as actors. Kani, the world has witnessed her brilliance again in ‘Killer Soup’. I feel blessed.”
Ali Fazal added, “As new founders, we’re exploring new worlds through new stories, Sundance happens to be the greatest step one into the next worlds to be discovered by us hopefully soon. I am thrilled that we get to share our creation with the world. Also very glad to be blessed with such an amazing jury on world competition that’s gonna watch Girls Will Be Girls.”
