From debuting in a Dharma production to now producing a film with them, in many ways, it feels like coming full circle from where I started. Every day is a different day… exciting, challenging (and a little scary)… not just as an actor but also as a producer as we bring this film to life, and I CANNOT wait to share more as we move forward.''

Alia Bhatt as a producer
Jigra is Alia Bhatt's second project as a producer. Earlier, she produced Darlings, which was released in 2020 and also featured Vijay Varma and Shefali Shah in the lead.
Talking about Darlings, the actor said ''Our first production, ‘Darlings’ got so much love that it was exciting and overwhelming at the same time. And just a little over a year later, we are ready to launch our second production -- Jigra, a beautiful story of courage, passion and determination. I hope to consistently support compelling narratives that are authentic, and enduringly timeless and work with brilliant creative minds to bring them alive.''
Meanwhile, Jigra will be produced by Karan Johar, Apoorva Mehta, Alia Bhatt and Somen Mishra. And other information related to the film are yet to be unveiled.
