According to the Times of India, the film follows a quirky mother-daughter duo as they navigate through crazy circumstances while trying to find their place in the world. Set in Mumbai against the backdrop of a conservative lower-middle-class neighbourhood, Darlings traces the lives of these two women as they find courage and love in exceptional circumstances.

Bhatt, who has turned producer with the film, said, “I am really excited to be part of Darlings; it's a powerful story with a lot of humour and doses of dark comedy. I am thrilled to have Darlings as my first film as a producer, that too in collaboration with my favourite, Shah Rukh Khan and Red Chillies.”

Written by Parveez Sheikh & Jasmeet, Darlings is being produced by Khan, Bhatt and Gaurav Verma. The film is slated to go on floors this month.
