On her 44th Birthday, Kajol launched the trailer of her upcoming film ‘Helicopter Eela’ where she plays the titular role. Produced by her husband, Ajay Devgn and directed by Pradeep Sarkar, the film also stars Riddhi Sen as the teenage son of single mother, Eela. The film also has Neha Dhupia in a supporting role.
The trailer gives a glimpse of the entire plot as the once-aspiring singer is now a single mother with a teenage son to look after. After 22 years, she decides to finish her education and enrols in the same college as her son, Vivaan. Hence, hilarity ensues, as he tries to save himself from the embarrassment by avoiding his mother at all costs. Things take a turn for the worse, as conflicts arise between the mother-son duo.
The film presents a unique take on modern day parenting and how to draw the line between caring and being compulsive. About her character, Kajol had this to say: “Most Indian mothers are like Eela. We are all Eela essentially; we are all obsessed with our children, albeit in varying degrees. Everything that Eela does is because she loves her son and he does everything from a place of love too. So there is no one right or wrong in this film.”
Kajol comes out as a scene-stealer in the trailer and fans are waiting much anticipation to watch the film as it releases on 7th September.
