Bollywood actress Seema Pahwa to don a director’s hat

Known as one of the finest character artists in Bollywood, actress Seema Pahwa is set to add a new feather to her cap. Yes, the talented actress, who impressed the audience with her performances in such recent films as Bareilly Ki Barfi (2017) and Shubh Mangal Saavdhan (2017), is turning director with an upcoming Hindi film, titled Pind Daan.

Seema is set to begin production in the month of November. A major portion of the movie will be shot in Lucknow, the state capital of Uttar Pradesh. After completing the first schedule in Lucknow, the team will film a short schedule in Mumbai. Pahwa is planning to wrap up the movie by early next year.

If a source close to the development is to be believed, apart from helming it, Seema will also be playing an important role in the movie. Talking about other members of the cast, Naseeruddin Shah, Konkona Sensharma, Vikrant Massey, Vinay Pathak, Parambrata Chatterjee and Seema’s actor-husband, Manoj Pahwa, are onboard.

“Seema has been planning it for months now. She has directed plays in the past,” reveals the source.

When contacted, Seema also confirmed the news. “Yes I’m directing a film but I’m still finalising details, so I cannot speak about it yet,” she said.
