The Hindi film Uma, which stars Kajal Aggarwal, went on the floor today in Kolkata. The slice-of-life saga, which is being shot in a start-to-finish schedule while adhering to COVID-19 protocols, also stars Tinnu Anand, Harsh Chhaya, Meghna Malik, Gaurav Sharma, Shriswara and Ayoshi Talukdar. 

The film marks the comeback of director Tathagata Singha after nine years. His last release was The Last Act (2012), which starred Saurabh Shukla.

Aggarwal was announced as a cast member last month. She plays the titular character who enters an aristocratic household and changes its dynamics in the backdrop of a wedding.

Uma is being produced by Avishek Ghosh and Mantraraj Paliwal under their respective banners AVMA Media and Miraj Group.

Speaking about her casting in the film, Aggarwal said last month, “Very happy to be collaborating with AVMA Media, Avishek Ghosh and director Tathagata Singha on an extremely interesting film titled Uma. I look forward to commencing shooting as soon as the situation around us gets better. I’m always keen to give a green signal to scripts that are fun, entertaining yet challenging for me as an actor. I’m excited to share Uma with all of you!”
