Playing strong female characters is Divya Dutta and Swara Bhasker’s forte. While we have seen them play strong characters with immense finesse, both actresses are gearing up for their next with Faraz Arif Ansari’s Sheer Kurma. In the film Divya will play a romantic partner to Swara Bhasker.

The film also stars veteran actress Surekha Sikri and will trace the journey of a queer woman searching for sense of belongingness, an identity and acceptance from her family. Talking about Divya, Faraz said he imagined her in the role even while writing. He said “Divya and Swara are two celebrated names in the industry and strong allies of the LGBTQIA+ community. It was an easy decision to approach them. In fact, when I started writing the film, I had Divya in my mind, and already saw her playing this role.”

Talking about her role as belonging to LGBTQIA+ community, Dutta revealed in a statement that she never had a second thought before taking up this role because of the rapport she shares with Faraz. “I have worked with him previously and I know what he has to offer. For me, this is not just a film. It’s a story about relationships – including this woman’s with her family and her partner, which is something that needs to be talked about amid all the taboo that exists in our society. I took up this role because I wanted to challenge myself as an actor and discover another side of me. I am in good hands, as I have Swara and Surekhaji as my co-actors, who are equally fabulous. I always wanted to share a screen with them. It is going to be lovely to bring in all the emotions of women who are in this and find a way to strike a balance in society.”

Swara has however, not spoken about the movie yet. We would love to know what she has to say about confirming this role and how she expects to deliver this social issue driven film. For more Bollywood news and updates, stay tuned with CineBlitz.
