Netflix has announced Jaadugar, its upcoming sports dramedy, which will premiere on July 15.  Set in a football-loving town, Neemuch, Jaadugar is a story of a small-time magician, Meenu, with no athletic skill, who must prove his worth in a prestigious inter-colony football tournament, in order to marry the love of his life.

There are just two things against him—the girl does not love him back and his team has not won a game in years! Friendships are tested and hearts are mended as love meets magic.

Produced by Posham Pa Pictures and Chalkboard Entertainment, and directed by Sameer Saxena, Jaadugar stars Jitendra Kumar, Jaaved Jaafferi and Arushi Sharma. Niloptal Bora scores music.

Elaborating on the film, director-producer Sameer Saxena said, “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 is 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.”

The film is written by Biswapati Sarkar. He says, “Jaadugar is a unique concoction of love, magic and football. It is a wholesome entertainer, meant to be seen with your loved ones. Unlike sports films that revere elite athletes, Jaadugar celebrates everyday individuals who play sports, not for pride or fame, but only for the love of the game. 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.”
