Netflix Drops The Trailer Of Skater Girl
Skater Girl is a coming-of-age story about confidence, courage, and the profound impact of blazing your own trail. The film stars Rachel Saanchita Gupta, Amy Maghera, Shafin Patel, Jonathan Readwin, with a special appearance by Waheeda Rehman.
The film follows Prerna (Rachel Saanchita Gupta in her debut performance), a local teen living a life bound by tradition and duty to her parents. But when London-bred advertising executive Jessica (Amy Maghera) arrives in the village to learn more about her late father’s childhood, Prerna and the other local children are introduced to an exciting new adventure thanks to Jessica and her old friend (Jonathan Readwin) who cruises into town on a skateboard. The kids become infatuated with the sport, skating through the village, disrupting everything and everyone around them.
Determined to empower and encourage their newfound passion, Jessica sets out on an uphill battle to build the kids their own skatepark in town, leaving Prerna with a difficult choice between conforming to society’s expectations of her or living out her dream of competing in the National Skateboarding Championships.
The film is written and directed by Indian filmmaker Manjari Makijany, making her feature directorial debut after work as an assistant director work in Hollywood previously. Co-written and produced by Vinati Makijany.
Netflix will debut Skater Girl streaming starting on 11th June.
