Sharing his tweet, actor Swastika Mukherjee wrote, “Sir, my name is Swastika Mukherjee, Qala belongs to me as well, I don’t hail from Mumbai but have been working for 22 years now, it would be great if you mention my small name along with the BIG ONES. Thank you in advance.”
Adarsh again shared a tweet in her response, “Qala stars Tripti Dimri, Babil Khan [who debuts with this film] and Swastika Mukherjee. Netflix India.” He also posted, “Thank you for bringing to my attention… Have done a separate tweet… Looking forward to Qala.”

More about Qala
It is said that Qala, which features Tripti Dimri as the titular character, is a heartbreaking story of “a daughter who strives for her mother’s affection. Babil Khan, the son of the late actor Irrfan Khan, is also making his acting debut with the film. The film, set in the early 1930s and late 1940s, focuses on classical musicians.
Swastika Mukherjee plays the role of the estranged mother, who, as time goes loses what little bond she had with her daughter. Amit Sial, Neer Raao, Avinash Raj Sharma, and Ashish Singh are also featured in Qala. Anushka Sharma and her brother Karnesh Sharma’s production team, Clean Slate Filmz, are backing the Anvitaa Dutt-directed movie. Following the release of their critically acclaimed feature film Bulbbul in 2020, Dimri and Dutt are reunited in the film. The series will be released on Netflix.
With the words “A sneak peek into what’s to come in Qala, and we can already tell it’s going to be magical,” Netflix released a brief teaser for the series yesterday. In the brief teaser, Dimri was in the spotlight, singing Kausar Munir and Amit Trivedi’s Phero Na Najariya. Additionally, it looks like she is performing in front of a live audience that includes a foreigner of some kind, which fits with the fact that the movie is set many years before India attained independence.
