Babil to make debut with Qala

Meanwhile, Babil is all set to make his debut with the film Qala. The venture is being directly released on Netflix and is being produced by Anushka Sharma-headed Clean Slate Films. The film seems to be a mother-daughter story about a girl seeking a place in her mother's heart. 

The makers had announced the movie on April 10. The movie is being directed by Anvitaa Dutt.

Babil was seen in a glimpse in the announcement, dressed in what seemed like local attire of a snow-capped region. Recently, he had shared photos from the set and wrote that it was 'shooting time' as the shooting resumed after the COVID-19 lockdown.
