‘Dolly Kitty Aur Woh Chamakte Sitare’ is directed by Alankrita Shrivastava whose shot to fame with her film ‘Lipstick Under My Burkha’ that came out in 2017. She also created a buzz on the internet with web series titled ‘Made in Heaven’.

Alankrita recently opened up on her film and said, "My endeavour is to constantly challenge the way women are represented in Indian popular culture. Society and cinema try to put women into boxes — 'good', 'brave' or a caricature vamp. We need to do away with these boxes. Women characters can do cowardly things; that makes them real. And yet, find their moments of courage. Through my writing, I try to capture that in-between-ness of women. Dolly Kitty is my boldest attempt at expressing the moral ambiguity of women."

Apart from ‘Dolly Kitty Aur Woh Chamakte Sitare’, Vineet Kumar Singh's comedy-drama ‘Aadhaar’ is also set to have it world premiere at the festival, which will open with the Kazakhstani film ‘The Horse Thieves, Roads of Time’. Another Indian film is Adil Hussain’s ‘Raahgir’ that will get its world premiere at the festival. 

Meanwhile, ‘Dolly Kitty Aur Woh Chamakte Sitare’ has been produced by Shobha Kapoor, Ekta Kapoor and Aashish Singh under the Balaji Motion Pictures banner and is scheduled to be released this year.
