Late actor Mac Mohan’s daughters Manjari and Vinati Makijany will be releasing their film “Skater Girl” on June 11. The sisters have written the film, with Vinati producing and Manjari directing it.
Vinati Makijany shared the trailer and announced the release date on her social media handle with a caption: “Skater Girl Trailer And after a long wait the trailer of our feature Skater girl is here! Can’t wait to share the labour of our love with you! Wheels up! 11th June!”
Manjari has earlier directed short films and has also assisted on films such as “Dunkirk”, “The Dark Knight Rises”, “Wonder Woman” and “Mission Impossible 4”. She has also assisted on Bollywood films such as “Saat Khoon Maaf”, “Wake Up Sid” and “Gandhi Of The Month”.
Talking about “Skater Girl”, Manjari says, “‘Skater Girl’ is about Prerna, who fights through all obstacles – both societal and her inner fears – to embrace her true talent and chase her dreams. It’s also a story about women across different strata of society and how they connect with each other and relate to each other’s struggle. Across generations, these women have a story to tell,” she says.
The film’s story is set in a remote village in Rajasthan and follows Prerna, essayed by Rachel Saanchita Gupta, a teenager living a life bound by tradition and duty to her parents. Through the course of the story, she finds herself torn between conforming to society’s expectations of her and living out her dream of competing in the National Skateboarding Championships.
The film will stream on Netflix.
