MUMBAI: Internet TV network Netflix will adapt Nidhi Chanani’s graphic novel ‘Pashmina’ into an original CG animated musical with writer-director Gurinder Chadha ‘Bend It Like Beckham’, producer Ashok Amritraj, and Chadha’s long-standing writing partner, Paul Mayeda Berges.

Pashmina joins the growing slate of Netflix original animated event programming – feature films and series that reflect diverse perspectives and cultures in a variety of styles and formats – that is designed for families around the world. Netflix is slated to release Juan Antin’s CG animated feature film Pachamama this June and Sergio Pablos’ 2D animated feature film Klaus in November of 2019.

‘Pashmina’ is a fantasy and adventure story that follows Priyanka, a first generation American of Indian descent, as she explores her family history with the help of a magical pashmina. Nidhi Chanani’s debut graphic novel by the same name has been lauded for its portrayal of Indian culture and feminism, receiving a number of awards and recognitions, including Amazon’s Top Twenty Children’s Book of the Year, Northern California Indie Bookseller Association Long-List Title and A Junior Library Guild Selection.

“When our hero, Priyanka, puts on the magical pashmina for the first time and is transported to the India of her dreams, that’s when the fun, the magic, the song and the dancing really come to life!” commented Chadha.

Amritraj said, ” ‘Pashmina’ is a wonderful coming-of-age story that will resonate with anyone who has ever felt like an outsider, and one that I believe Netflix families around the world will enjoy experiencing together.”

“Gurinder, Paul and Ashok together form a cinematic dream team and we’re beyond thrilled to work with them to bring to life the beautiful story of Pashmina – with its universal themes of family, female empowerment, and identity. ‘Pashmina’ connects three generations of women across two continents in a timely story that we hope will resonate with family audiences around the world on Netflix ” said Netflix VP kids & family Melissa Cobb.
