Kajol starrer Helicopter Eela to release on September 7
New Delhi : Bollywood beauty Kajol’s will be seen in her upcoming movie Helicopter Eela will now be released on September 7 instead of the previously scheduled date September 14. Directed by Pradeep Sarkar, the film also stars the National Award-winning actor, Riddhi Sen, who will be playing Kajol’s son. The film is written by Mitesh Shah and Eela is the reel name of Kajol playing a single mother and an aspiring singer. The movie is co-produced by Ajay Devgn and Jayantilal Gada of Pen India Ltd.
The movie release date was announced via tweet. “Fooled you… coming on September 7 now,” Kajol posted on Twitter. The tagline of the film reads, ‘She is here, there and everywhere..’
Taking a brief about her role in the film, Kajol said, “As a mother, I felt a real connection with Eela’s character. She loves her son unconditionally and has built her life around him. But as he grows up, she finds herself becoming more and more dispensable. She has also put her life and dreams on hold, like so many mothers do. This is a life situation that so many women face once their kids grow up. And, one that I will inevitably face is, what do I do now? How do I hold on to my baby? In a way, Helicopter Eela is a coming of age film, more for Eela rather than it is for her son!”
Director Pradeep Sarkar said,” The story of Helicopter Eela will make you fall in love with this mother-son duo! Hope the audience enjoys the film as much as we enjoyed making it.”
Bollywood actor Ajay Devgn, husband of Kajol is producing this film. He said,” I was drawn to the story of this loving but difficult relationship between a mother and son. The script told a beautiful story, of a journey that all parents face, but it is especially true and unique to mothers and their sons. The characters played by Kajol and Riddhi Sen are extremely strong and they will have an astonishing connect with the audience across the globe.”
