Actress Freida Pinto and veteran actor Anupam Kher will star in the directorial debut of “Slumdog Millionaire” producer Tabrez Noorani titled “Love Sonia”, which is a real-life inspired drama about sex trafficking.

The film tells the heartfelt and brave story of Sonia, a young Indian village girl whose life irrevocably changes when she is entrapped into the vicious global sex trade network.

“Happy and proud to be part of this amazing international film ‘Love Sonia’ dir by Tabrez Noorani,” Kher posted on Twitter.

According to Deadline newcomer Mrunal Thakur will play the title character in “Love Sonia”, which will also feature American actor Paul Dano, Manoj Bajpai, Richa Chaddha, Adil Hussain, Rajkummar Rao and Sai Tamhankar.

The film is written by Ted Caplan and Alkesh Vaja.

Noorani said he spent years developing the script including personally participating in rescue missions with NGOs in both India and Hong Kong.

“The film is unflinching and controversial, and we wanted to make a film that can be a global platform for a problem that is happening in every community, and people don’t notice,” Noorani said.
