The teaser introduces Huma's character as someone who is ambitious. She wants to do ‘something’ in her life but is unable to realise her passion.

The short teaser also gives a glimpse of Tarla's life beyond food as it features her husband and family. The teaser establishes the film as an out-and-out feel-good story about the celebrity chef.
Tarla is directed by Piyush Gupta. It is backed by Ronnie Screwvala, Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari, and Nitesh Tiwari. Huma wrapped filming the film last year. It will release on Zee5.
Talking about the movie, she told Filmfare in 2022, "Tarla Dalal reminds me of my childhood. I clearly remember how my mom used to try her recipes when we were kids. Looking forward to this very special character.”
Tarla Dalal was a food writer, chef, cookbook author, and host of cooking shows, specialising in Indian and particularly Gujarati cuisine. She wrote over 100 books on food and sold more than 10 million copies. She was awarded the Padma Shri by the government of India in 2007, which made her the only Indian from the field of cooking to have been conferred the title. She died at the age of 77 on November 6, 2013, following a heart attack.
Huma was last seen in Netflix's Monica, O My Darling. It starred her with Rajkummar Rao and Radhika Apte in the lead roles as she played Monica Machado.
