The official trailer of ‘Parched’, the movie directed by filmmaker Leena Yadav and produced by Ajay Devgn was released yesterday on Ajay Devgn’s official YouTube channel. In just a day, the intense trailer has garnered more than 8,75,000 views!

Parched is going to be released in India on September 23, 2016, and has been given an ‘A’ certificate. The movie was released in TIFF (Toronto International film festival) last year where it got rave reviews. Parched has been received well at 24 International film festivals and the film has already got 18 awards.

Parched is a story of four women in the rural Indian village called Ujhaas, and their struggles with issues like marital rape, patriarchy, and misogyny. Parched has Radhika Apte, Tannistha Chatterjee, Surveen Chawla, Adil Hussain, Chandan Anand, Lehar Khan and Sayani Gupta in important roles.

While the two-and-a-half minute trailer keeps you hooked, the glimpse of the gripping and intense performances by the actors makes you want more of the movie! The mesmerising background Rajasthani folk music in the trailer adds to the charm. The cherry on the cake is Ajay Devgn’s voiceover of the Sanskrit shlok at the end of the trailer – ‘Yatra Naryastu pujyante ramante tatra Devat’ – which means ‘wherever women are respected, the deities like to reside there.’

We can’t agree more!
