After Lipstick Under My Burkha, Alankrita Shrivastava returns to direction with Dolly Kitty Aur Woh Chamakte Sitare, and from the looks of the trailer, it’s going to be a star-studded ride.
The Netflix original film stars Konkona Sen Sharma and Bhumi Pednekar in lead roles, as two cousins fighting to establish a life that breaks the norms that patriarchy enforces on women.
Konkona plays the role of Dolly, a married woman, dating a man younger than her in age. And Bhumi plays her cousin Kajal, a single woman, working with a company that offers phone-sex to gain financial independence.
The film also stars Vikrant Massey and Amol Parashar as Bhumi and Konkona’s love interests, respectively, along with Kubbra Sait, Aamir Bashir, and Mushtaq Khan.
