The two have earlier shared screen space in 'Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham' (2001) and Kajol had a special appearance in Karan Johar's 'Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna' (2006), where she was seen grooving to a portion of the track in the film.
Meanwhile, reinventing the process of parenting, the comedy-drama witnesses Kajol as a single mother and an aspiring singer, Eela, who joins her son, Vivaan's (played by National Award-winning actor Riddhi Sen) college to complete her education. The Pradeep Sarkar-directorial will hit the screens on September 7.
Talking about the peculiar title of Helicopter Eela, Ajay Devgn, who is also a producer behind the project, explained the meaning of the movie's name. "Anand Gandhi narrated the story to me. So then I started rounding up my team. I narrated it to Dada (Pradeep Sarkar) and that is how Eela was put into place. It was initially only titled Eela but then we came across this American concept of 'helicopter parents' who hover around their children all the time. In India, every mother is a helicopter mother so we named it Helicopter Eela," said the actor.
