Bollywood A-listers Kajol and Kriti Sanon will lead the cast of Netflix India’s original thriller film Do Patti.
The film also marks the production debut of Sanon and writer Kanika Dhillon. Billed as an “exciting thrill ride”, the film is set in the hills of northern India. A director has not yet been announced.
Kajol, one of India’s most beloved actors, has credits including romance “Kuch Kuch Hota Hai”, melodrama “Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham…”, romantic thriller “Fanaa” and drama “My Name Is Khan.” She made her streaming debut with the Netflix movie ‘Tribhanga’, which was released in 2021, and stars in a segment of the streamer’s ‘Lust Stories 2’, which came out on June 29. She will next be featured in the Disney+ Hotstar series “The Trial – Pyaar, Kaanoon, Dhokha,” the Indian adaptation of the CBS series “The Good Wife.”
Dhillon’s 2021 mystery drama ‘Haseen Dillruba’ was a hit for Netflix. Sanon’s “Mimi” was released on Netflix and JioCinema. Her recent credits include “Bhediya,” “Shehzada,” and “Adipurush.” Kajol and Sanon co-starred with Shah Rukh Khan and Varun Dhawan in Rohit Shetty’s “Dilwale” (2015).
Monika Shergill, VP of content for Netflix India, said: “We are thrilled to bring the powerful talent of Kajol and Kriti Sanon to the screen together with ‘Do Patti.’ Both actors are passionate about storytelling and always deliver unforgettable performances. In addition, we are delighted to support Kanika Dhillon and Kriti on their first creative journey as producers. We look forward to working together to bring their creative vision to our audiences and continue to tell compelling and exciting local stories.”
Kajol added, “I couldn’t be more excited to be teaming up with Netflix again after ‘Tribhanga’ and ‘Lust Stories 2’, this time for an exciting ride that is ‘Do Patti’. The opportunity to be on streaming has been really exciting, as it allows us to enter unexplored territories and present compelling stories to audiences around the world. ‘Do Patti’ has a striking script that promises a unique blend of adventure and mystery. It is a story that is not only rooted in India, but also promises the thrill that entertainment enthusiasts can enjoy across borders.”
Sanon said: “’Do Patti’ is a script that holds a very special place in my heart as it marks my debut as a producer with my production house Blue Butterfly Films. I love every aspect of filmmaking and have always wanted to be more creatively involved in stories that touch my heart. And I felt in my gut that I was ready to shift gears and do more. I am thrilled to be working with the extremely talented Kanika Dhillon as producer and we couldn’t have wished for a better partner than Netflix for this magical journey.”
Dhillon said, “Being a part of ‘Do Patti’ as a writer-producer has been an incredibly fulfilling experience for me and we are so happy to finally share this project with the world. Stepping into the role of producer has allowed me to explore a new facet of storytelling and bring my creative vision to life. Working with the phenomenal Kajol and Kriti has been an absolute pleasure.”
