Darlings is a quirky dark comedy revolving around a mother-daughter who navigate life and the curve balls it throws at them.

Alia Bhatt and Shefali Shah headline the cast along with Roshan Mathews and Vijay Verma.

The movie marks quite a few debuts -- Alia as producer and Jasmeet K Reen as director. It's also Malayalam actor Roshan's big Bollywood outing.

Darlings went on the floors in March and will release in theatres next year.

After Thalaivii, Kangana Ranaut will play Sita in Alaukik Desai's The Incarnation: Sita.

Written by veteran screenwriter K V Vijayendra Prasad (Baahubali, Manikarnika, Thalaivii), Manoj Muntashir and Desai, its first look poster was unveiled on Instagram this month.

There were reports that Kareena Kapoor Khan and Deepika Padukone had been approached for the film, but the makers recently confirmed that they always wanted Kangana to play the titular character.

 

Pippa

Ishaan Khatter, who was last seen in Khaali Peeli, has signed Raja Krishna Menon's Pippa.

The war movie also features Mrunal Thakur and Priyanshu Painyuli in the lead.

Based on tank commander Brigadier Balram Singh Mehta's heroics in the Battle of Garibpur during the 1971 War, Pippa -- the Soviet-built PT-76 tank was nicknamed Pippa -- is produced by Ronnie Screwvala and Siddharth Roy Kapur.

Ishaan plays Balram Singh Mehta; Mrunal plays his sister and Priyanshu his older brother.

Pippa went on the floors last week and is slated to release in theatres next year.

 

Bhediya

Backed by Dinesh Vijan and directed by Amar Kaushik, Bhediya is a horror comedy starring Varun Dhawan and Kriti Sanon.

The first Bollywood movie entirely shot in Arunachal Pradesh is likely to arrive in cinemas next year.

While it is being said that Bhediya is about werewolves, writer Niren Bhat said in an interview that the movie belongs to a completely different genre.

Since they are not saying any more, we'll just have to wait and watch.
