About Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas is the first directorial venture of Sriram Raghavan since his successful 2018 thriller film Andhadhun. The film stars Katrina Kaif, Vijay Sethupathi, Ashwini Kalsekar, and Radhika Apte. It was shot both in Hindi and Tamil language and has a different supporting cast for both versions. Sanjay Kapoor, Vinay Pathak, Pratima Kazmi, and Tinnu Anand appear in the Hindi version. On the other hand, Radhika Sarathkumar, Gayathrie and Shanmugaran appear in the Tamil one. Merry Christmas was earlier supposed to release in December but it was pushed to January 12, 2024. 


In a recent interview with Film Companion, Kaif said that Sriram asked her to write her own backstory of her character Maria. She revealed, “(Sriram) said, ‘Tell me what you think, where she came from, who she is, why she does what she does’. That process really helped me understand the world." When asked if Vijay Sethupathi was also given this task, Kaif called him a 'class topper' and said that he has the tag of a great actor.
