Shonali Bose’s feature film Margarita, with a Straw that won her the Sundance Institute– Mahindra Global Filmmaking Award 2012 has completed principal photography. The film was shot in India in March and in New York in June 2013.

The film features Kalki Koechlin (Shanghai, That Girl in Yellow Boots), Revathy (Thevar Magan, Dhoop, Marupadiyam) and William Moseley who played Peter Pevensie in the film series The Chronicles of Narnia.

Produced by Bose’s production company Ishan Talkies and Viacom 18, the film is still in need of finishing funds. It is expected to be ready by October this year.

The film revolves around Laila (Koechlin) who falls repeatedly in love, yearns to have sex and wants to be a Bollywood lyricist.

Academy award winner Resool Pookutty (Slumdog Millionaire) is the sound designer of the film. Prasoon Joshi ( Taare Zameen Par, Rang de Basanti) has penned the lyrics. Anne Misawa ( Treeless Mountain, Jack and Diane) has shot the film.

Bose made her feature debut with Amu in 2005- based on the 1984 genocide against Sikhs- that won a National award and was screened at Berlin and Toronto film festivals. Bose co-wrote and co-produced the feature film Chittagong, directed by her husband Bedabrato Pain.
