Kajol will be next seen in the film Helicopter Eela. In the film, she plays the role of a single mother and an aspiring singer. Actor Riddhi Sen will play her teenage son in the film. Eela as a mother is over possessive and overprotective of her son Vivian.
Kajol herself is a mother and has two beautiful children – Nysa and Yug. She said that the character of Eela is relatable to her. “I don’t think Indian mothers are going to change very much. But yes, Eela is just that little bit more. The character is relatable,” said the actor. While people have loved the trailer, many are wondering why the film is called Helicopter Eela. So when Kajol was asked what the title means, she said, “Helicopter Eela comes from a hashtag helicopter mom. Which is basically what an Indian mother has always been – overpossessive and stalkerish.”
Helicopter Eela is directed by Pradeep Sarkar and it is produced by Ajay Devgn. It will hit the screens on September 7, 2018.
