Friendships are tested and hearts are mended as love meets magic in this heartwarming sports comedy.

Elaborating on the film, director, producer, Sameer Saxena added, “Jaadugar is our attempt is to present a completely fresh take on sports and romance. With magic as another key element in the film, we have tried to tell a story that’s high on entertainment and caters to an extremely wide audience. With Netflix as our partner, we hope that the love with which we have made the film translates on screens across the globe.’’

Amit Golani and Saurabh Khanna of Posham Pa Pictures said, “Posham Pa Pictures is extremely excited about its debut film Jaadugar, a light hearted tale set in a small town. The story is up the alley of Sameer Saxena (Director), Biswapati Sarkar (Writer) and Jitendra Kumar (Actor). The trio, with lots of successful works to its credit, has come together first time for a film. Association with a global platform like Netflix has enhanced the canvass of the film and Posham Pa is thrilled to see its debut work featured at the service.”

Writer, Producer, Biswapati Sarkar shares “Jaadugar is a unique concoction of love, magic, and football. It is a wholesome entertainer, meant to be seen with your loved ones.

We are extremely excited to partner with Netflix for this special film, and are eagerly awaiting audiences across the globe to experience the 'magic' of Jaadugar.”
