Netflix’s much awaited series ‘Bombay Begums’ has captured the hearts of the audiences ever since the release of the trailer. Starring terrific actors like Pooja Bhatt, Shahana Goswami, Plabita Borthakur, Amruta Subhash and Aadhya Anand, the series is set to hit the service on 8th March Popular actor Amruta Subhash spills the beans on what went into essaying the character of Lily as a bar dancer.
The versatile actor had to shed her inhibitions for a particular dance sequence in the series and was quite nervous. Dancing is not something that comes naturally to Amruta, but she boldly stepped out of her comfort zone to sink into the skin of her character and dance!
Talking about her experience, Amruta Subhash said, “Alankrita had arranged a meeting with Reshma apa, who herself was a bar dancer. I spent a day with her and that gave me Lily’s soul. I love dancing, but the way Reshma apa was dancing required different skills. To get those I had to work hard. Also, to keep on dancing like that for hours my body needed more strength. My fitness Guru Shailesh Parulekar worked on that. I am grateful to him for that.It was hard work but I enjoyed it so much! That’s the fun of each role and I have been fortunate to have casting directors like Shruti Mahajan and creators like Alankrita Shrivastava who trusted me for Lily and pushed me out of my comfort zone.”
