In a delightful surprise for fans, the star-studded team behind the 2024 release Jigra recently unveiled a small animated snippet on Instagram, offering a glimpse into the intriguing world of the movie. Many fans were quick to notice the anime-inspired aesthetics of the clip, which features an animated Alia Bhatt in what appears to be the role of a protector.
Produced by a formidable lineup including Karan Johar, Apoorva Mehta, Alia, and Somen Mishra, Jigra is a highly anticipated project that brings together the creative forces of Dharma Productions and Eternal Sunshine Productions. Directed by the talented Vasan Bala, the film is set to hit cinemas on September 27, 2024.
Karan, one of the producers of the film, couldn’t contain his excitement as he took to Instagram to share the news. He posted, “The return of…my JigraAlia, once again on this exceptional story helmed by Vasan. A story of unbreakable love and unshakable courage!”
Alia, who not only stars in the film but also plays a pivotal role as a producer, expressed her enthusiasm on her Instagram account. She wrote, “Presenting Jigradirected by the extremely talented Vasan and produced by Dharma Productions Eternal Sunshine Productions. From debuting in a Dharma production to now producing a film with them, in many ways, it feels like coming full circle from where I started. Every day is a different day…exciting, challenging (and a little scary)…not just as an actor but also as a producer as we bring this film to life, and I cannot wait to share more as we move forward.”
The brief animated snippet shared on social media has sparked intrigue among fans, leaving them eagerly awaiting more details about the film’s storyline and Alia’s role as a protector. While little is fully known about Jigrathe voiceover is suggestive of Alia’s character conversing with another unseen individual, to whom she promises her protection, due to the person wearing a rakhi in her name. This hints at a familial bond, perhaps a brother-sister duo, and the dark, gloomy aesthetics suggest that Alia, as the sister, must protect a loved one against the perils of the world.
As Jigra gears up for its cinematic release on September 27, 2024, it promises to be a remarkable addition to Alia’s filmography and a captivating cinematic journey for audiences around the world. Further updates and revelations about this exciting project that brings together talent, courage, and unbreakable love on the silver screen are sure to follow.
