In a very first international collaboration, Deepti Naval, Kalki Koechlin will be seen together in the upcoming film based on Dementia titled Goldfish. The film will have its premiere at the 75th Cannes Film Festival that will have actress Deepika Padukone as a jury member. The film is set in London and also stars Rajit Kapur. 

Speaking about the film Deepti said, “As an actor you wait for films that will change something inside. For me, 'Goldfish' is one such role. I connected immediately with the film when I heard the story of the film in three lines. Something inside me said, this is for me, this is what you have been waiting for me. Maybe because I saw my mother go through Alzheimer's and Dementia.” 

Kalki said, “What home means. In a post-COVID world where a lot of people were forced into their homes with their loved ones, there was so much physical stillness, yet there was this emotional torment that was anything but still.” She further added, “That's something the film speaks about. The other thing that stood out for me in the film is how the film's cast included Indians from all over the world and all these actors had their own accents that is something we've never seen in a film - the diversity of Indian accents and therefore of the people of India

Goldfish is directed by cinematographer and theatre director Pushan Kriplani. It is produced by Amit Saxena's Splendid Films. It will premiere at Cannes 2022 on 21st and 22nd May 2022.
