Tahira Kashyap talks about Sharmajee Ki Beti’s lead characters: “They’re not saving the world but perhaps saving their own”

The heartwarming trailer of Prime Video’s upcoming slice-of-life comedy-drama, Sharmajee Ki Beti, has sparked palpable excitement among audiences about its release. Written and directed by multi-talented Tahira Kashyap Khurrana, the film explores the aspirations, dreams, and coming-of-age moments of three middle-class women from diverse backgrounds, who share one thing in common – the ‘Sharma’ surname. This highly anticipated film serves as a significant milestone for Tahira as it marks her directorial debut. Ahead of the film’s global premiere on June 28, Tahira got candid about her experience and thoughts behind creating Sharmajee Ki Beti.

“With Sharmajee Ki Beti, I aimed to capture various phases of a woman’s life, featuring characters who are 13, in their 20s, and in their late 30s to early 40s. The issues they face are small, not earth-shattering; they’re not saving the world but perhaps saving their own, which means everything to them,” said writer and director Tahira Kashyap Khurrana of Sharmajee Ki Beti.

She added, “The goal was to make audiences fall in love with these characters and realize that they can have fascinating lives. By focusing on female protagonists and perspectives, viewers might discover a richer variety of cinema, and I love it when women do extraordinary things—it feels amazing.”

Presented by Applause Entertainment, and produced by Ellipsis Entertainment Production, Sharmajee Ki Beti stars Sakshi Tanwar, Divya Dutta, and Saiyami Kher in the lead roles, along with Vanshika Taparia, Arista Mehta, Sharib Hashmi, and Parvin Dabas in pivotal roles. The film will premiere exclusively on Prime Video in India and over 200 countries and territories worldwide on June 28.
