The film promises to resonate with Gen Z, Millennials and Boomers across the world, represented by the various 'Sharmas' in the film.

Talking about the film, Writer-Director Tahira Kashyap Khurrana says, “"Sharmaji Ki Beti is like an extension of my personality as it is inspired by a various incidents and characters I have met, experienced and observed in real life.

A big shoutout to the formidable cast and crew we've put together for this exciting journey, and to Applause and Ellipsis for continuing to believe in brave set-ups and subjects and giving new talent an opportunity."
