India to get its first female buddy film!
A bachelorette set to destroy romcoms, India is all set to get its first all-out female buddy film, Angry Indian Goddesses. Helming the project is the internationally-acclaimed filmmaker Pan Nalin, who is best known for his award-winning documentaries and the Indie film Samsara. Angry Indian Goddesses that marks Nalin’s debut in mainstream Bollywood, boasts of an impressive line-up including Sandhya Mridul, Tannishtha Chatterjee, Sarah-Jane Dias, Anushka Manchanda, Amrit Maghera, Rajshri Deshpande, Pavleen Gujral and is being produced by Gaurav Dhingra, who has earlier co-produced Peddlers among many other noted films. Jungle Book Entertainment, co founded by Nalin and Gaurav, with a strong slate of international films, is now entering the mainstream Bollywood space with AIG.
Talking about the film, Nalin shares that his upcoming film is one of the first films to put the buddyhood of Indian women at the heart of the story. “My attempt is to make a film which shows a reflection of that state of affairs, which Indian women are experiencing; career, society, love, family, sex, independence…. It’s a power-packed comic drama about Indian women finding their hearts and losing their heads!” says the filmmaker.
