Posted On January 9th, 2024
Katrina Kaif had a great time at the Red Sea Film Festival in Jeddah, where she talked about her upcoming movie “Merry Christmas” directed by Sriram Raghavan. She was really happy to work with Raghavan, saying it was like a dream come true for her. Katrina mentioned that this project is the most challenging in her career, both emotionally and artistically. Raghavan, known for pushing actors to their limits, has provided her with a demanding yet fulfilling experience.
About Katrina’s Film Merry Christmas
Katrina shared that working on Merry Christmas, a film in both Hindi and Tamil, added an extra layer of complexity when delivering her lines in Tamil. Filming each scene required two takes, one in each language, making it a challenging yet exciting experience for the actress.
The trailer for ‘Merry Christmas’ has been released. Directed by Sriram Raghavan, it is a thriller set against the backdrop of Christmas where two strangers meet and instantly form a friendship. But what appears to be a sweet romance soon takes a turn for the worse. The makers themselves had revealed that ‘the stupid romance turns into a nightmare and it would be a crime to reveal anything more than that.
Sriram Raghavan is known to be a master of thrillers (take ‘Andhadhun’ for example) and this looks to be another interesting mystery film. Additionally, the film treatment looks pulpy. Needless to say, Vijay Sethupathi and Katrina Kaif’s chemistry is refreshing and both the actors seem to be creating something delicious.
It’ll hit the screens in mid-January, just four days before the 20th anniversary of his first movie, Ek Hasina Thi. Both versions are set to release on January 12.

The 140-second trailer kicks off with a distinct Sriram Raghavan touch, featuring a split screen displaying two mixer grinders—one busy grinding food items and the other crushing tablets.
As you watch the trailer, it beautifully captures the essence, highlighting cinema, carnivals, toys, the colour red, and other Christmas elements with nostalgic visuals.
A character thinks, “For as long as we can remember, we’ve all been looking for that one special moment. And when that moment arrives, we realize that life has been a sweet anticipation leading up to it.
In the movie, you’ll get to see a lovely Christmas Eve date with Katrina Kaif and Vijay Sethupathi’s characters.
Watch out for Sanjay Kapoor in the trailer—he’s the guy who always seems to be in the right place at the right time, thanks to his good luck charm. And you know what? “Merry Christmas” seems like it’s going to be an awesome movie! Vijay Sethupathi even shares some wisdom, suggesting that sometimes, it’s better to be tough than to give up something important.
A Double Player Movie

And in the Tamil version, watch out for stars like Radhika Sarathkumar, Shanmugaraja, Kavin Jay Babu, and Rajesh Williams. Oh, and keep an eye out for special cameos by Ashwini Kalsekar and Radhika Apte in both versions!
A group of people, including Ramesh Taurani and others, made a movie. It has music by Pritam and lyrics by Varun Grover. They say it’ll be an exciting film with thrills and a warm feeling, good for watching in January.
Madhu Neelakandan takes charge of the cinematography, while Pooja Ladha Surti works her magic as the editor for “Merry Christmas,” set to release on January 12, 2024, in both Hindi and Tamil.
From the Maker’s Mouth
The Merry Christmas team shared, “We put a lot of love into making this film, but with many other movies coming out and the busy last two months of 2023, we decided to extend the joy. You can catch our film in theatres on January 12, 2024.
Raghavan revealed that Merry Christmas is based on a cool French novel, but he’s keeping the title a secret for now. He mentioned how Alfred Hitchcock did something similar with Psycho, buying up all the copies of the book it was based on. Raghavan did the same on Amazon, getting copies to share with friends after the movie comes out.”
This book is not just a thrilling story; it delves deep into relationships. After Andhadhun, I needed a break from all the suspense. Merry Christmas has a calmer feel, like the most elegant low-budget film.
Vijay Sethupathi, Katrina Kaif, and the talented Pari Sharma are joining forces for Merry Christmas, and it’s going to be fantastic!
