Maali is a journey of a 16-year-old girl Tulsi, from the calm mountains to the concrete jungle and her struggle when she witnesses the life of the city; greed, loneliness and depression. In the film, you will experience a young Maali’s journey from the serene mountains to the concrete jungle and the effects of deforestation on our wellbeing and mental health.
Maali brings alive the most pertinent global conversation around deforestation and mental health. The fascinating trailer has not only created a huge impact on viewers but the meaningful subject has also left them on an emotional high, making it an eye-opener.
Vaani Kapoor says, "It has been an immense pleasure working with Pragya. Her films have always had an important message. Having worked with her on Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui which also had a social message, Maali too highlights alarming issues that we are facing around us, which need to be addressed and given more attention. The trailer of Maali looks incredible and we should all support and watch such meaningful content."
During the trailer launch, producer Pragya Kapoor said, "It's been an honour for us to showcase our film Maali at the prestigious Indian Film Festival of Melbourne. We have received tremendous support from the industry for this little film of ours. Also a huge thank you to my dear friend Vaani Kapoor for being gracious as always and launching our trailer to the world."
Director Shiv C Shetty is making his directorial debut with Maali. After working in the corporate sector for 13 years Shiv is now following his passion. Talking about Maali, he said, “It's my first film and it has been a beautiful journey working with Pragya; who is so deeply connected with nature and Maali wouldn’t have been complete without her.”
Apart from donning a producer's hat and being known for delivering content-driven hits like Kedarnath (2018) and Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui (2021), Pragya Kapoor has been involved in some exemplary work in the field of environment conservation. Founder of Ek Saath - The Earth Foundation, Pragya remains in a constant pursuit to make the world a better place through her philanthropy efforts and eco-friendly initiatives.
