Ali Fazal and Sriya Pilgaonkar-starrer ‘House Arrest’ to debut on Netflix on November 15, as announced by the streaming portal on Tuesday.
Directed by Shashanka Ghosh and Samit Basu, the film is about a man, who trapped in his own fears, locks himself at home, only to find that while he can restrict his interaction with the world, he can’t keep the world from entering his domain.
The movie also features Jim Sarbh and Barkha Singh in pivotal roles, Netflix said in a statement.
The film is produced by Trilok Malhotra and KR Harish of India Stories Media & Entertainment Pvt. Ltd.
Apart from this, Netflix bugs will also see their favourite diva Kajol in an upcoming film Tribhanga, a multi-generational story to be directed by actor Renuka Shahane. The film, which derives its title from an Odissi dance pose, will begin shooting from Thursday.
It will stream exclusively on Netflix. The film will mark the digital debut of Ajay's wife, actor Kajol, who stars alongside Mithila Palkar, Tanvi Azmi and Kunaal Roy Kapoor.
Ajay is producing the project through his banner Ajay Devgn Ffilms, in collaboration with Bannijay Asia and Siddharth P Malhotra's Alchemy Films. ''Tribhanga' is a story of three women from the same household who belong to different generations. The story has a universal appeal and we wanted to tell this story as a film.
Aashish Singh, Director, Original Film, Netflix India, also hailed the film's story as something that will resonate with the global audience. "It is a very exciting script. Renuka Shahane is an incredible writer. Siddharth P Malhotra is the creative producer on the film. We were thinking who should be cast for this film and instantly we all thought Kajol was the best fit. She had not agreed to do anything on OTT before.
