In the upcoming romantic drama, Meenakshi Sundareshwar (2021), starring Sanya Malhotra and Abhimanyu Dassani, the lead pair play a newly-wed couple navigating life in a long-distance relationship, under the watchful eyes of their family. The film will have its digital premiere on Netflix on 5 November.

Directed by Vivek Soni and produced by Dharmatic Entertainment, Meenakshi Sundareshwar "encapsulates the various interlinked aspects of relationships,  joint families, the awkwardness in a new marriage and everything in between", according to a release by the makers.

In last month’s online fan event, Tudum, hosted by Netflix, a sneak peek of the film was shared by way of the melodious song ‘Tu Yahin Hai’ written by Raj Shekhar and composed by Justin Prabhakaran. The lovely duet was sung by Abhay Jodhpurkar and Madhushree Bhattacharya.

The visuals show the young couple connecting online through the phone and computer. Sundareshwar (Dassani) seems to be working in a distant land, while Meenakshi lives with her in-laws.

Written by Soni and Aarsh Vora, the film pairs Dassani and Malhotra for the first time. Meenakshi Sundareshwar will be Malhotra's third consecutive Netflix feature after Ludo (2020) and Pagglait (2021).

Dassani won the Filmfare award for Best Male Debut for Vasan Bala's crowd-pleaser Mard Ko Dard Nahi Hota (2019). He is also awaiting the release of Nikamma co-starring Shirley Setia and Shilpa Shetty.
