The teaser begins with Madhuri dancing in a colourful room all by herself. Then we are introduced to her son, played by Ritwik Bhowmick, and his girlfriend, played by Barkha Singh. The two have made up their minds to get married, but the parents might not be 100 percent on board. Madhuri even asks Ritwik if Barkha’s parents are happy with the match. When he says that they are indeed, Madhuri shocks him by saying that she just might not approve of the match. A bit Crazy Rich Asians-Monster-In-Law vibes, no?
Directed by Anand Tiwari and written by Sumit Batheja, Maja Ma is touted as a “family entertainer, set against the celebratory backdrop of a traditional festival and a quintessential, colourful Indian wedding”.
Gajraj Rao, Ritwik Bhowmik, Barkha Singh, Srishti Shrivastava, Rajit Kapur, Sheeba Chaddha, Simone Singh, Malhar Thakar and Ninad Kamat are also a part of Maja Ma.
