Ekta Kapoor teams up with Guneet Monga to produce 'Pagglait'

Mumbai, Nov 21 (PTI) Producers Ekta Kapoor and Guneet Monga have come together to back Sanya Malhotra-starrer 'Pagglait'.

The movie will be produced by Balaji Telefilms and Monga's Sikhya Entertainment, the production house behind the Oscar short-film 'Period. End of Sentence'.

'Guneet is one of the most relevant voices in Indian cinema today. When I heard the very concept of the film, I knew we had to do this together,' Kapoor said in a statement on Thursday.

Monga said the team is glad to bring a concept as quirky as 'Pagglait' on screen with Malhotra and Balaji Telefilms.

'Our film is a story of a young girl as she discovers her purpose and identity amidst looming questions about love and belonging in the neo modern small-town India,' she said.

Directed by Umesh Bist, the first schedule of the film is underway in Lucknow. PTI JUR RDSRDS
