Pari Not a Fairytale (English Fairy Not a Fairytale) is a 2018. Indian supernatural horror film directed by newcomer Prosit Roy. It stars Anushka Sharma and marks her third production venture for her company Clean Slate Films. Parambrata Chatterjee, Ritabhari Chakraborty, Rajat Kapoor and Mansi Multani feature in supporting roles. Production on the film began in June 2017 and it released theatrically on 2 March 2018. The story of the film revolves around the concept of Ifrit and Auladhchakra, a satanic cult in Bangladesh aiming to propagate and progress the bloodline of Ifrit. They branded the women impregnated by Ifrit with the symbol of a foetus on their skin. Rukhsana (Anushka Sharma), is the daughter of a woman who was a victim of a ritual by Auladhchakra. She is afraid of incense sticks and religious hymns and prayers, and hides her head in a bucket of water to cut out the Azaan playing in a nearby mosque. Professor Quasim Ali (Rajat Kapoor) used to head a group of vigilantes which sought out women impregnated by Ifrit, and killed their babies by chopping off their heads. This drew a lot of flak from villagers eventually and the group was ultimately shut down due to its radical approach.
