'Sardar ka Grandson' a life-affirming film: Aditi Rao Hydari
Actor Aditi Rao Hydari believes a life-affirming film like Sardar Ka Grandson is important in today's time as it's about family and the bond they share.
Directed by debutante Kaashvie Nair and scripted by Anuja Chauhan, the film narrates the story of a devoted grandson (Arjun Kapoor) who embarks on a complicated and comic journey to fulfill his ailing grandmother's (Neena Gupta) last wish.
It is special because it is about a grandmother: Hydari

"The film is also about family, how there are stubborn and determined people in the family, making it all happen. These warm, fuzzy films are so life-affirming in every way and are so important," Hydari said.

The film will be released on Netflix on May 18.
