Today marks a big day for Alia Bhatt as not only she has the release of Darlings today, but with the film, she also embarks on a new journey as a producer. The film is her first project under her production house Eternal Sunshine Productions. Alia Bhatt has co-produced Darlings with Shah Rukh Khan and his company Red Chillies Entertainment. To have such a big name next to hers in her first step into production is a big deal and in a recent exclusive conversation with Bollywood Bubble, the actress opened up about it, while also revealing her co-producer’s reaction to the film.

Alia revealed that when she decided to turn producer with Darlings, Shah Rukh was very supportive and he told her that even though he never co-produces, he would do it with her. But once the project was finished, the actress was a bit nervous on how it would be received by him, but thankfully it all went well.

Sharing how Shah Rukh Khan reacted after seeing Darlings, Alia Bhatt revealed, “He saw it and he spoke to me in that Darlings lingo, ‘thanks yous for such a lovelys film’. I think that even the whole feeling of like ‘okay now Shah Rukh has seen it, the producer has seen it’, that whole feeling was like ‘Oh My God‘ . Jasmeet and I were both so relieved because you don’t want to, like you want to have a face to show.”

And it just wasn’t Shah Rukh who loved Darlings as Alia went on to reveal, “Even Gauri, Suhana, Aryan, they all loved it, they all saw it. They all were so kind. Suhana saw it two times, the second time she saw it, I was like ‘guts you’ve seen it for the second time’. They were very happy, they were very like loving and supportive and they really loved it.”

Not just this, Shah Rukh had even left quite a sweet note for Alia on Twitter too when she had shared the trailer of the film on the social media platform. “Lil one I am also so anxious that u shared the responsibility of Eternal Sunshine Productions first film with me…that I will be biting my nails till it releases. But I feel we have a lovely film and u r the soul and sunshine of all things Darlings. (sic)”

Well, it’s great to see that Alia has achieved success on her first try in this new journey and now all that remains to be seen is how the audience is going to respond to the film as it has now started streaming on Netflix. Darlings is directed by Jasmeet K Reen and also features Shefali Shah, Vijay Varma and Roshan Mathew, alongside Alia.
