Mumbai: Odisha's classical dance Odissi will bedazzle Bollywood with its full glory this year. Actress Kajol is all set to foray into the digital platform with debut film Tribhanga which captures her playing the role of an Odissi dancer.
The movie is slated to release on January 15 on the online streaming giant, Netflix. The name of the movie derives from the word 'Tribangha', the three bent form of dance called posture which is an important feature of Odissi.
Kajol took to Twitter to make the announcement on Friday with a glimpse of the story and characters in the upcoming movie through a video.

"Tribhanga, matlab, tedhi, medhi, crazy, but sexy. #Tribhanga, premieres 15 January, only on Netflix," Kajol wrote, also sharing the announcement on Instagram.
The actress will be entering the digital space with the film, which is a Mumbai-set drama. The film tells the story of a family going back and forth through three generations, from the late 1980s to present day.
The film, directed and written by veteran actress Renuka Shahane, also stars Tanvi Azmi and Mithila Palkar.
The actress was last seen on the big screen in last year's historical action blockbuster Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior, co-starring her husband Ajay Devgn.
