Actor Esha Deol Takhtani, is ready to be back with a bang. While it was recently announced that she is all set to act in magnum opus Rudra The Edge of Darkness with Ajay Devgn for Disney+Hotstar VIP, it is now confirmed that she has produced her first film titled Ek Duaa.
In Ek Duaa, the actor will continue her pursuit of taking on a role which gives a meaningful message for the world, on women. The project, directed by Ramkamal Mukherjee, packs a subtle yet strong punch about a women related cause.
Talking about it, Esha who is excited about donning a new hat and the greasepaint once again, says in a statement shared with us:
“Over the past few years, I have been busy taking care of my two daughters, who are truly a blessing for me. I always wanted to come back to films, but I wanted to do it with something special. Now that they have grown up a bit and some very interesting projects are being offered to me, I thought it was the right time for me to face the camera once again. I wanted to do a film that not just entertains but also informs and inspires change. When I heard the concept of 'Ek Duaa', it truly touched me, and more so as a mother of two girls. So, I decided to extend my association with it as a producer rather than just being an actor."
Esha, who is looking forward to taking on more projects, added:
"It is heartening to see how the number of women behind the scenes have increased not just in count but in visibility too in the industry, and I am happy to join the bandwagon.”
Esha took to social media and announced the same. She wrote: “Overwhelmed to share with you all that under the banner of Bharat Esha Films (BEF) we are launching our first film as producers- ‘Ek Duaa.'
When I was approached with 'Ek Duaa' as an actress, I felt a deeper connect with the script. I just knew, I had to support the film, the cause, and would want to be associated with it as a producer too. It opened the doors for Bharat & me to start another innings as partners.”
Ek Duaa co produced by Venky’s and Assorted Motion Pictures is coming soon on Voot Select.
