Helicopter Eela, a comedy-drama based on a mother-son relationship, is a commentary on right parenting, possessive mothers and teenagers struggling for personal space.
Kajol shines as Eela, who was once an aspiring singer and has forgotten herself in being the only parent to her teen son Vivaan, played convincingly by National Award-winning actor Riddhi Sen. The film's trailer was dropped this week. It is directed by Pradeep Sarkar, who is known for films like Parineeta and Mardaani.
Produced by Ajay Devgn and Jayantilal Gada, the film also stars Neha Dhupia as Padma, a foil to Kajol's always smothering Eela.
The film will be released in September.
