Bollywood actress Kajol has recently unveiled a new poster of her upcoming film Helicopter Eela. In the poster, Kajol is seen handling the strings which are attached to her son, played by National Award-winning actor Riddhi Sen. The poster’s tagline reads as, ‘She is here, there and everywhere..’
Sharing the poster, Kajol wrote, “Holding on to my baby be like…. #MotherlyLove #HelicopterEela #14thSept @ajaydevgn @HelicopterEela @pradeepsrkar #SirshaRay @riddhisen896 @ADFfilms @jayantilalgada @saregamaglobal.”

According to the makers, Eela is “a story of a single mother and an aspiring singer (Kajol) who gives up all her dreams to raise her only child (Riddhi Sen). Her son who is a typical young millennial doesn’t want his mother’s life to revolve around him. Being an over protective mother, she decides to join her son’s college, which eventually leads to her invading the son’s privacy.”
Talking about her role in the film, Kajol said in a statement, “As a mother, I felt a real connection with Eela’s character. She loves her son unconditionally and has built her life around him. But as he grows up, she finds herself becoming more and more dispensable. She has also put her life and dreams on hold, like so many mother’s do. This is a life situation that so many women face once their kids grow up. And, one that I will inevitably face is, what do I do now? How do I hold on to my baby? In a way, Helicopter Eela is a coming of age film, more for Eela rather than it is for her son!”
Directed by Pradeep Sarkar, the film will release on September 14, 2018.
