Kajol, who was last seen in 2015 film 'Dilwale' opposite Shah Rukh Khan is making a Bollywood comeback after three years gap in her upcoming film 'Eela'. The film is directed by Pradeep Sarkar who has earlier helmed women-centric films like Vidya Balan's 'Parineeta', Rani Mukerji's 'Laaga Chunari Mein Daag' and Deepika Padukone's 'Lafangey Parindey'.
The makers confirm that 'Eela' will be released on September 14 and will be clashing with the much delayed 'Bhaiyyaji Superhitt', starring Sunny Deol, Arshad Warsi, Preity Zinta, Ameesha Patel and Shreyas Talpade.
Ship of Theseus fame Anand Gandhi is scripting the film, talking about the film director Pradeep said, "The film is based on a play, which itself was loosely based on my mother's life. My mother is very excited to see Kajol in the film. I am an admirer of her work. I love talking and discussing ideas with her. I was happy to interact with both Ajay and Kajol. They have sensitive perspectives that surprised me about my story."
Moreover, Eela is based on the Gujarati play 'Beta Kaagdo'. Kajol is playing a single mother in the movie, who is an aspiring singer. National award winner Bengali actor Riddhi Sen is playing her son in the movie. The actor was also a part of Sanjay Dutt's comeback movie, 'Bhoomi'.
