Written and directed by Tahira Kashyap Khurrana, it promises to take viewers on a rollercoaster of aspirations, dreams and coming-of-age moments as it follows the lives of three women and two teenage girls—all sharing the common surname ‘Sharma.'

The goal: equip content creators with the skills needed to build sustainable businesses on and empower them to collaborate with other creators on Amazon.

What is Sharmajee Ki Beti about?

A light-hearted and heartwarming Hindi movie, Sharmajee Ki Beti explores themes of women’s empowerment and the challenges faced by them. Through the multi-generational lens of three middle-class women and two teenage girls, the film delves into their unique experiences and struggles.

Jyoti (Sakshi Tanwar), a middle-class marvel, strives to balance her career with her responsibilities as a wife and mother. Kiran (Divya Dutta), a vivacious homemaker, finds her world turned upside down after relocating from Patiala to Mumbai, yet this move helps her discover her true self. Tanvi (Saiyami Kher), a young cricket sensation who effortlessly hits sixes on the field, struggles to convince her boyfriend that her ambitions extend beyond marriage. Additionally, the trailer provides a brief glimpse into the lives of two teenage Sharma girls navigating the challenges of growing up—from the mysteries of menstruation to self-discovery.

Industry-leading preventative measures, best-in-class technology, temperature control methods, and plenty of rest time help keep employees, associates and drivers safe.

Khurrana says, “Sharmajee Ki Beti is a dream come true for me. The film is special to me not only because it marks my directorial debut, but also because it has provided me with an opportunity to explore a subject very close to my heart—women's empowerment. The light hearted, comical narrative highlights the everyday struggles, triumphs, and diverse experiences of middle-class women. Each character reflects a part of my own journey, making it deeply personal.”

Who is in the cast of Sharmajee Ki Beti?

It boasts of a women-led, talented multi-generational cast with Sakshi Tanwar, Divya Dutta, and Saiyami Kher in lead roles along with, Vanshika Taparia, Arista Mehta, Sharib Hashmi and Parvin Dabas. The movie is presented by Applause Entertainment and produced by Ellipsis Entertainment production.

Tanwar says, “When I first read the script, it stirred a multitude of emotions within me. From moments of helplessness and sadness to bursts of pride and joy, this movie truly resonated with me as a celebration of modern, new-age women. Sharmajee Ki Beti is a powerful call for women to stand tall and be proud of who we are and what we can achieve. My character, Jyoti, mirrors the lives of millions of women around the world, striving to balance societal expectations with their own dreams and aspirations. Although she has a wonderfully supportive partner who believes in her dreams, she struggles with the tantrums and expectations of her teenage daughter. I believe audiences, not just women, in India and around the world will love the humorous and relatable take on important issues like gender roles, relationships, and personal identity. The sensitive portrayal of these themes will strike a chord with everyone.”

Dutta says “I feel Sharmajee Ki Beti offers a refreshing narrative that focuses on the intricacies of everyday life and relationships from the perspective of females belonging to different generations, each with unique personalities and outlooks on life. When I read the script, I fell in love with my character, Kiran and the beautiful vulnerability it had. She appears to be quite flighty by nature, but there's an undercurrent of strong emotions due to the circumstances she faces in her personal life. Portraying Kiran allowed me to explore new facets of my acting abilities that I hadn't tapped into before. Tahira’s vision for this film was both clear and inspiring; it was truly fascinating to work with her and bring this story to life.”

Kher says, “Sharmajee Ki Beti has been a very special journey. When Tahira narrated the film to me, I instantly loved it. It was such a fresh feel-good feeling after the narration. Tanvi’s role was a liberating reminder that everyone must follow their dreams and passions and not get bogged down by societal pressure. Through Tanvi’s story, the film highlights how many of us navigate similar struggles, constantly balancing personal aspirations with societal expectations. It’s a relatable narrative for anyone who’s ever felt torn between obligation and dreams, encouraging viewers to find their own path to fulfillment. I'm confident that this heartfelt story will resonate deeply with everyone who watches it."
