In India, we value family and emotions attached to it more than anything else. Born and raised in a joint family where multiple generations share a roof shapes life in a certain way and being raised in a nuclear family comes with its own experience. Abhishek Banerjee who plays Bhuvan – a guy who has lived his entire life surrounded by a big family, reveals how he has never lived in a joint family before.

Talking about the same, actor Abhishek Banerjee, who plays the character of Bhuvan in the investigative thriller ‘Aakhri Sach,’ said, “I’ve never stayed in a joint family and this show made me realize the pleasure and complications of having one. I’ve always admired people who maintain a joint family household. In India, it’s definitely more popular to have one than in the West. It shows that we are still rooted to our family values, that we still can adjust to each other’s needs and sometimes agree to disagree with another member. Aakhri Sach has taught me to take care of my family because the spiral down begins from the family. So, it’s very important to uphold its identity.”

Goldfish, starring Deepti Naval and Kalki Koechlin, hosts a special screening for the Alzheimer’s & Related Disorders Society Of India (ARDSI)


Splendid Films’ Goldfish is all set to release in theaters worldwide. Ahead of the release of their critically acclaimed film (that has already established its marksmanship for being a heartening narrative that portrays a sensitive story with utmost brilliance); the team of Goldfish today hosted a special screening for the family of Alzheimer’s & Related Disorders Society Of India. ARDSI Mumbai Chapter activities include spreading more awareness of this neuro-disorder by holding talks at all levels of society, educational institutions, service sectors and corporates to reduce social stigma and make it an inclusive society.

Talking about the initiative of hosting a special screening for the ARDSI family, Kalki Koechlin said, “Disorders like Dementia and Alzheimer’s are not easy to fight. It consumes a person and makes them forget their identity; in such cases, it is especially tough for the caregivers as they end up living two separate lives. Goldfish is a movie that displays this type of a conundrum that a mother-daughter face in this kind of a situation. The film is a raw and emotional portrayal of a very sensitive situation. Splendid Films has taken a heart-touching initiative by holding a special screening for the ARDSI family. We hope that we are able to contribute a little bit and bring a smile to every person’s face who’s watching this movie today”

Deepti, who gracefully essays the role of Sadhana Tripathi in the movie shared, “When it comes to portraying the character in the film, the sentiments are almost the same when it comes to the mother-daughter equation in reel and real life. The relatability with the role in Goldfish came from my own lived experiences with my mother who had Alzheimer’s for many years before she passed away. I saw her go down that route and It was painful to see someone that brilliant, articulate and so in command of her life. As much as the film seems about dementia and caregiving of elderly in society, I rather look at the film about an estranged mother-daughter relationship who start off on the wrong foot but gradually reconcile in the face of challenges.”

Dr. Vidya Shenoy, Integrative Therapist and Dementia Care Specialist is an Hon. Secretary of ARDSI Mumbai Chapter, talking about the collaboration with Goldfish, she says, “With September, World Alzheimer’s Month, round the corner, it is a great privilege to have been chosen to collaborate with Team ‘Goldfish’ to raise awareness about dementia. The film with an impressive star cast highlights not only the many challenges of someone having dementia but the family having a PwDem who then becomes a fulcrum of their existence after diagnosis. These movies make society more vigilant about the ageing process and how, as an Integrative Therapist I feel, it is important for all to start living a healthy lifestyle to defer onset of comorbidities and in particular dementia that has no cure.”

Following its debut at some of the most prominent international film festivals across the globe; Anurag Kashyap is presenting this touching drama starring Kalki Koechlin, Deepti Naval, and Rajit Kapur. The critically acclaimed film is directed by Pushan Kripalani and produced by Amit Saxena.

The movie marks the return of the talented actress Kalki Koechlin to the theaters after 4 years.

Filmmaker Robbie Grewal opens up about casting Tamannaah Bhatia and Abhishek Banerjee in a spine-chilling thriller – Aakhri Sach


One Night, one family, multiple deaths, an investigating officer and various theories! Disney+ Hotstar announced their upcoming investigative thriller ‘Aakhri Sach,’ inspired by true events. The series will open many mysteries and delve into the lives of each character. Produced by Nirvikar Films, directed by Robbie Grewal, and written by Saurav Dey, Aakhri Sach will stream from August 25, 2023 exclusively on Disney+ Hotstar. ‘Aakhri Sach’ takes you on an emotional journey with a talented ensemble of Tamannaah Bhatia, Abhishek Banerjee, Shivin Narang, Danish Iqbal, Nishu Dikshit, Kriti Vij and Sanjeev Chopra.

For actors to expand their horizon, they need impactful stories that push their boundaries. A show like Aakhri Sach that is inspired by the events that shook the nation required faces that could bring that effect on screen. National Award winner Robbie Grewal opens up about his thoughts behind casting Tamannaah Bhatia as an intense cop and Abhishek Banerjee as an emotionally complex character.

Talking about the same, director Robbie Grewal said, “As storytellers, we all yearn to go beyond the obvious, get actors to play parts which they have never played before. With Tamannaah, I did just that. As far as casting Tamannaah and Abhishek Banerjee, It was pretty straight forward; I met them, they loved the material and they were on. Tamannaah has done such glamorous roles in big films with big stars but here I have presented Tamannaah very differently with a character that goes against the grain of what she has typically done in the past. All in all, she is a wonderful performer who surrenders to the character she is playing. And Abhishek banerjee… What a talent! I had been seeing his work and wanted to work with him. When we finished writing the show, we instinctively felt Abhishek would be perfect for this, and he was.”
