Actress Flora Saini who plays a highway robber in Nagesh Kukunoor’s Dhanak considers herself blessed that the talented director considered her for Dhanak. Flora who was last seen in Nagesh’s Lakshmi said, “It’s a dream come true to be working with him in Dhanak after Lakshmi. He is a fantastic director. I have been a fan of his movies even before Lakshmi happened in my life. And when I was cast for Lakshmi, I never knew initially that it was a Nagesh Kukunoor film. And I am blessed to have got an opportunity again to work with sir.”
Talking about Dhanak, Flora said, “I play a highway robber with a good heart. The film is all about how to overcome your disabilities both physical and mental. Everyone has a disability. We sometimes think we should have been taller, more beautiful and many other things. Dhanak talks about how none of these so called mental disabilities will impede us if we stay focused on what we are seeking to get.”
Flora who shares screen space with two child actors in the movie described the experience of working with them a easy experience. “It’s easy working with kids. They take instruction really well and are good actors.”
Dhanak opened in cinema screens across India alongside Udta Punjab today.
