Sharing her excitement about the film’s premiere Sanya Malhotra says, “I'm overjoyed to share the news of Mrs. being selected for the Tallinn Black Nights Film Festival. This film is very close to my heart, as it is a reminder that women have the strength to shatter the chains of patriarchal norms. My character's determination as an aspiring dancer in the face of patriarchal expectations reflects the resilience of women. Working with Arati Kadav (the director) was an incredible experience, her vision and direction brought this story to life in a powerful way. I hope this film sparks important conversations and resonates with audiences as we present it on such a prestigious platform.”
Producer and co-writer Harman Baweja says, "As a production house, we have always strived to tell entertaining stories and yet push boundaries - to say what remains unsaid. Mrs. is exactly that story, which I feel every father, brother, and son should watch as it mirrors the unspoken struggles of countless women who deserve to be heard. By collaborating with Jio Studios and the exceptionally talented Arati Kadav and Sanya Malhotra, we are confident that beneath all the entertainment, the beautiful message of 'Mrs.' will seep through and touch audiences across."
Director Arati Kadav adds, “The traditional role of a homemaker had always bothered me. Since a young age, when I looked around, I realised that every woman felt that it is upon them to cook and feed their family. Not just housewives, even working women had internalised this double shift as a sense of duty. When I started researching and hearing personal stories of young homemakers, I realised that through one story we were representing the lived experience of so many of them. I have always believed cinema is a medium that can spark conversations and even change. I have made Mrs., hoping in some way that it does. I am grateful to my producers Jio Studios and Baweja Studios for fuelling the film with their passion. Sanya Malhotra brought a beating heart and soul to the character, and I am immensely grateful for her talent.”
Presented by Jio Studios in association with Baweja Studios, produced by Jyoti Deshpande, Pammi Baweja, Harman Baweja, Mrs. starring Sanya Malhotra, Nishant Dahiya and Kanwaljit Singh, is directed by Arati Kadav.
