The week began with Twinkle Khanna’s announcement that her short story, Salaam Noni Appa, is being adapted into a feature film. The story was a part of Khanna’s The Legend of Lakshmi Prasad, a collection of four tales on feminism. While ad man Sonal Dabral will make his directorial debut with the slice-of-life movie, producer Khanna didn’t have to look too far for the lead actor. Who better than her actor-mother Dimple Kapadia to bring alive the part of the worldly-wise protagonist!

mid-day has learnt that Kapadia, who made a splash not too long ago with Christopher Nolan’s Tenet (2020), began shooting for the project about 10 days ago. The unit’s first stop was the Jio Mall in Bandra. A source reveals, “The story revolves around two sisters, Noni and Binny, who have reunited in the autumn of their lives. With its breezy treatment and Twinkle’s signature witty material, the movie has the potential to be India’s Grace and Frankie. So far, Dimple’s solo scenes have been shot. Noni’s unexpected love story, which forms the crux of the movie, will be filmed in the second schedule.” The ongoing stint is 25-day long with most scenes to be canned in and around Bandra.

While announcing Sameer Nair’s Applause Entertainment and Ellipsis Entertainment-backed project, Khanna revealed that the story is loosely based on the relationship between her grandmother and her sister.  The film marks her return to production after PadMan (2018).
