Divya Dutta – who was last seen in Fanney Khan and Swara Bhasker – who was in Veere Di Wedding, will be seen together in a unique film.
Swara and Divya will be seen in a film which is themed on the LGBTQIA+ community.
The film is helmed by Faraz Arif Ansari and is titled Sheer Kurma. The two will play lovers in the film.
The film also stars Surekha Sikri, who will be seen playing a Queer woman. The story will tell her character’s journey.
Speaking about thaving Divya in the film, director Faraz Ansari 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.”
Divya had this to say when asked about the film and raport with the director,
“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’m in good hands, as I have Swara and Surekha ji 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.”
