The film, which is also in contention in the World Dramatic Cinema category, promises to captivate audiences with its compelling narrative.


Richa and Ali have eagerly left for Park City, Utah, in the United States, ready to showcase their labor of love on an international stage. The date set for this prestigious moment and the world premiere is on 20th January.

Richa Chadha expresses her excitement, saying, "Getting through such a competitive cinema festival is itself a big deal. I have high hopes for Shuchi as a director and the rank newcomers as actors. Kani, the world has witnessed her brilliance again in 'Killer Soup.' I feel blessed.”

She adds, "Ali and I embarked on this production with a vision to tell unique stories. 'Girls Will Be Girls' making it to Sundance validates our commitment to compelling storytelling. We couldn't be more thrilled.”
