Avinash Das, who is a known name in the world of journalism, is ready with his maiden film, ‘Anarkali of Aarah’. The film set for release on March 24 stars Swara Bhaskar in the lead role.
Swara, who recently starred in her first leading role in 2016’s ‘Nil Battey Sannata’, is playing a local signer who croons in fairs, marriages and local events held in small towns and villages.
The film shows how a particular incident changes the world of Swara’s character.
‘Anarkali of Aarah’ is a social musical drama which is why the music of the film is its strong point. The songs have been composed by Rohit Sharma, who is known for the music of ‘Ship of Theseus’.
Das himself wrote the story of his maiden film. In his career as a Hindi journalist, Das contributed to the growth of dailies and channels such as Dainik Akhbar, Prabhat Khabar, NDTV and DB Star.
He was also associated with the key team of Aamir Khan’s ‘Satyamev Jayate’.
With ‘Anarkali of Aarah’, Das aims to leave a mark in the film industry the same way he has left in journalism.

The film is produced by Sandeep Kapoor and Priya Ahuja Kapoor. Photography has been done by Arvind Kannabiran.
Besides Swara, the film also stars Sanjay Mishra, Pankaj Tripathi and Ishtiyaq Khan in important roles.
