The teaser opens with Alia Bhatt narrating the popular tale of a scorpion and a frog crossing a river. As the scorpion in the story stays true to its nature, she implies basic nature cannot be changed, no matter what’s the situation.

It then zooms into the lives of a mother-daughter duo played by Shefali Shah and Alia Bhatt, respectively, who are striving to find a place in a city like Mumbai. All that it takes to survive in this male-dominating world, these two women would do.

As they seek courage and love in exceptional circumstances, a cloud of mystery lingers among them. And it deepens with the presence of Vijay Varma and Roshan Mathew in their lives. Who is playing whom?

As the trailer progresses, we see that both the women are charged with a murder. Both Shefali and Alia claim they are innocent because they killed someone ‘in their imagination’.

The trailer gives a glimpse of a power-packed performance by these two leading ladies of the film.

Watch the trailer:

Darlings is Alia Bhatt's maiden production venture and it is set to premiere on Netflix on August 5.

Alia has produced the film through her banner Eternal Sunshine Productions, in collaboration with superstar Shah Rukh Khan's Red Chillies Entertainment.
