Bollywood actress Surveen Chawla’s film Parched, directed by Leena Yadav, is all set to premier at Toronto Film Festival 2015. The film is set in the heart of parched rural landscape of Gujarat, India. It traces the bittersweet tale of four ordinary women Rani, Lajjo, Bijli and Janaki.
“The film is one of the most beautiful journeys I’ve had in so many years of my work, transforming me to a great degree. Parched is an expression of what every woman wants to say. Tannishtha (Chatterjee), Radhika (Apte) and I have had the most brilliant experiences. It’s a fantastic film and I cannot wait for its release. I think it might travel across festivals before releasing in India. I play a nautch dancer in the film. It’s bold superficially but with a lot of depth.” Says Surveen
