Divya Dutta is one actress whose filmography boasts of a wide range of characters, and she has portrayed each one with equal finesse. Now, the actress is about to add another feather in her portfolio with Faraz Arif Ansari’s Sheer Kurma, in which she and Swara Bhasker will play romantic partners. The film also stars veteran actress Surekha Sikri, and traces the journey of a queer woman searching for a sense of belonging, identity and acceptance from her family.
When asked about having Dutta on board, Faraz revealed that she was his only choice even while writing the film. 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. The day I finished the script, I put up a status on Instagram saying I need someone to play the role, and Divya was actually the first person to call me. It was kind of bizarre that both of them were thinking on the same lines. Without even reading the script, she said she wanted to do the film.”
The film will be wrapped up by the end of the year.
