Shamita Shetty is all set to return to the big screen with a contemporary, narrative and gripping story in ‘The Tenant’, which will hit the theaters on February 10, 2023. The makers’ trailer, released today, offers a realistic perspective of a single woman who overwhelmed by the harsh reality of society.
Shamita Shetty has always opted for ‘quality over quantity’ in her career across media and platforms, delivering performances that have left an impression on audiences. Shamita Shetty’s The Tenant is yet another compelling story.
A social drama written and directed by Sushrut Jain, Shamita Shetty’s The Tenant follows the story of a single, independent woman who rents a flat in a conservative housing society. He encounters everything from teenage crushes to adult lust, as well as frowns, prejudices and snap judgments along the way.
Shamita Shetty, who is overjoyed with the premiere, shared, “The Tenant is a reflection of society from a modern, independent, single woman’s perspective, with experiences and lessons that every woman in India has undergone at some point in her life. The film’s compelling setting and sensitive as well as realistic storytelling connected with me, prompting me to immediately agree to do the film. I truly believe, each woman and the people around her, would have a profound impact on the story, offering a deeper insight into the disturbing, prevailing reality of the society we live in today!”
The filmmaker is equally excited about the release, which has received rave reviews at international film festivals. “It’s a topical issue that has struck a chord around the world. I am sure my film will find an audience here too,” says Sushrut Jain.
Swanand Kirkire, Sheeba Chaddha, Atul Srivastava, Rudraksh Jaiswal (seen in Extraction alongside Chris Hemsworth) and Harsh Mayar of Gullak fame are among the cast members.
Kanchan Kalra, Daniel Walter and Sushrut Jain produced The Tenant, which will hit theaters on February 10, 2023.
