Anushka Sharma is acing her role as a producer, after the resounding success of her Amazon Prime Video web series Paatal Lok, Sharma on Wednesday released the first look of her next production, Bulbbul.
In the teaser of the Netflix original film, we get to see a mysterious girl prancing over trees. Sharing the clip, Anushka wrote on Twitter, “Here’s your first look at #Bulbbul, a fantastic tale about self-discovery, and justice, wrapped in lore, mystery and intrigue, coming soon on @NetflixIndia. Can’t wait to share more!”
Bulbbul tells the story of Satya and his brother’s child bride Bulbul. Satya is sent to school in England, and upon his return, he finds out about Bulbul serving the people of his village after being abandoned by his brother. But the village is haunted by a mysterious woman and Satya must find out the truth. The film traverses the journey of a young girl, Bulbbul, from innocence to strength, as the legend of a 'chudail' (witch) casts a looming shadow over her world.
Produced by Anushka Sharma’s Clean Slate Films, and directed by longtime lyricist-dialogue writer Anvita Dutt, the mystery film also stars Rahul Bose, Paoli Dam and Parambrata Chattopadhyay, who starred opposite Anushka in her 2018 production, horror film Pari. It is all set to premiere on Netflix on 24th June.
