Sanya Malhotra will make her Netflix comeback with this film, which will be her first since her memorable performances in Ludo, Pagglait, and Meenakshi Sundareshwar.
Kathal, starring Sanya Malhotra and Anant Joshi, premiered earlier this week on Netflix and will be the company’s second feature film. This small-town dramedy stars Sanya Malhotra as a young police officer determined to crack the case of missing jackfruits (Kathals) for the sake of her own professional advancement. Yashowardhan Mishra makes his directorial debut with Kathal, which he co-wrote with Ashok Mishra, a renowned and award-winning screenwriter.

Founder and CEO of Sikhya Entertainment, Guneet Monga explains, “At Sikhya Entertainment we endeavor to constantly generate distinctive, engaging and heartwarming material that stands out.” Sanya Malhotra and Balaji & Netflix are the perfect partners for this new adventure, and we couldn’t be more excited.
In charge of Kathal, our director Yashowardhan Mishra, is a master of the satirical and comedic arts. Yashowardhan & Ashok Mishra, the authors and imagineers of Kathal, drew us in from the start and we can’t wait to see it come to life for everyone! In the same way as the fruit of the tree leaves you with a delicious taste in your mouth, Kathal will leave you with a sweet sensation that we will love for years to come.
“At Balaji Motion Pictures, our objective is to continue crafting genre-bending, engaging, and relevant tales,” says Balaji Telefilms Co-Producer and Executive Vice President Ruchikaa Kapoor Sheikh. Sanya Malhotra plays the lead role in Kathal, a whimsical story set in the heartland of India.
His first film, written and directed by Yashowardhan, is full of humor and introspection. It is exciting to collaborate with Sikhya & Netflix on tales with an Indian heart after the phenomenal success of Pagglait.”
