Mumbai: Teaming up with the Parched filmmaker, Leena Yadav, actor Rishi Kapoor is set to make their Netflix debut with Rajma Chawal, a light-hearted story about a family in the age of social media.

The flick will be available exclusively on the streaming site, worldwide, on November 30. Prior to this, it will premiere at the BFI London Film Festival in October.

Set in the chaotic, vibrant Chandni Chowk area in Delhi, Rajma Chawal captures the relationship between a father attempting to reconnect with his estranged son through social media, a new world for him. The film is an emotional roller-coaster, interspersing grief and the pressure of family expectations with humour, compassion and love. Rishi Kapoor plays the role of Raj Mathur, the father, along with Amyra Dastur, Aparshakti Khurana and Anirudh Tanwar in his debut role as Kabir Mathur, the son.

Leena says, “The father-son dynamic is a universal human theme, and Netflix, with its global reach and ability to address a range of audiences with rich and resonant stories, was the ideal partner for us. Being on Netflix invites the whole world into the lives of a family in Chandni Chowk, and we are excited to bring the tumult, colour and vitality of both the family and the area to newer audiences.”
