Helmed by director, Suresh Triveni who had earlier collaborated with Vidya for ‘Tumhari Sulu’ shared, “It is my absolute pleasure to collaborate with T-Series and Abundantia Entertainment on Jalsa and to work with my fantastic crew and cast led by Vidya and Shefali. With Jalsa, we hope to engage, thrill and entertain movie-watchers with a unique tale of powerful characters and precarious circumstances”.
Talking about Jalsa and her reunion with Suresh Triveni, Vidya Balan said, “I’m very excited to collaborate again with Suresh. Tumhari Sulu was a one-of-a-kind, fun experience and I look forward to us creating something special with Jalsa. Jalsa is an edgy but human story and I can’t wait to firstly start work on and then share it with the world. I’m also delighted to reunite with Abundantia Entertainment and T-series on the back of Sherni and look forward to working with Shefali who I have admired for long as also the rest of the amazing cast and awesome crew”.
Actress Shefali Shah on the other hand shared, “I am sooooo excited to be a part of “Jalsa”. It is a story with such a unique perspective that when Suresh first told me about it, I knew I just had to do it. I’m also excited to work with Vidya, whose work I have deeply admired. It’s also wonderful that I’m working with producers like Abundantia Entertainment and T-Series, two companies that are at the forefront of curating interesting and engaging content.”
The film is also backed by a stellar supporting cast comprising Rohini Hattangadi, Iqbal Khan, Vidhatri Bandi, Gurpal Singh and Surya Kasibhatla, (making his debut) with Manav Kaul in a special appearance. Written by Prajwal Chandrashekar and Suresh Triveni, with dialogues by Hussain and Abbas Dalal, Jalsa is slated for a 2022 release.
