Acclaimed filmmaker Vishal Bharadwaj, who last helmed Rangoon, is quite excited about his upcoming film, Chhuriyaan. The ace filmmaker has cast two newcomers to play lead roles in his movie – Dangal fame Sanya Malhotra and TV actress Radhika Madan.
Revealing more about his untitled film and why he roped in Malhotra and Madan, Baradwaj says, “The film is divided into two parts — the girls before their marriage and how their lives change after they tie the knot. Usually, actors give directors a commitment, but when push comes to shove they get cold feet. But that doesn’t happen with newcomers who are ready for anything. I am looking forward to directing Sanya and Radhika because I can mould them according to my will, change their look and create something fresh.”
Both actresses will have to undergo extensive training in order to play their parts to perfection. They will, reportedly, have to gain at least 1-12 Kgs of weight along with learning how to milk buffaloes and plaster walls with dung. They are also required to learn how to carry earthen pitcher full of water on their heads.
The film is expected to begin rolling soon.
