Jalebi, starring Rhea Chakraborty and debuting actor, Varun Mitra, is going to release on August 31 2018. The movie is directed by Pushpdeep Bhardhwaj and written by Kausar Munir. It started shooting in March 2018. The movie is also going to be the debut for television actress, Digangana Suryavanshi. She has been known for her roles in shows like Qubool Hai, Veera. Director, Mahesh Bhatt announced her arrival in the crew, with the caption, that Jalebi is the taste of everlasting love. He also wrote, while introducing the cast that, “They live in the story of the film like fish lives in water”. Varun Mitra is an actor and model, who has made appearances in advertisements and bit parts in shows.
The movie is a product of Vishesh Films, which has given opportunities to newcomers and actors who haven’t had a breakout on the silver screen yet, and Jalebi will have three actors who have worked previously, but will get a bigger platform to showcase their talents.
Rhea Chakraborty has been an underrated performer, having attained attention with her performances in Mere Dad Ki Maruti, Sonali Cable, Half Girlfriend and Bank chor. She is known for her charming presence and comedic chops. This could be a chance for her to connect to a wider audience and do a different role that she’s often given to play in movies. Vishesh Films usually produces dark, twisty and erotic movies, so Jalebi could be a break from the formula, and a romantic tale with the leads. Because the three leads are not that well know, the movie could use some publicity and material as the release date nears. If the storyline of the movie is different than what we’ve seen before and people like the trailer, it could do decent business and be a launching pad for the the leads.
