Bhumi Pednekar, who was last seen in the Netflix film Lust Stories, will be making a return to the big screen with Sonchiriya. The actor confessed that working on the film was akin to visiting an acting school.
“Working on this movie was like visiting an acting school. Being a Mumbai girl, I had led a comfortable life. To play the role of a rural woman who was living in a suppressed society in the ’70s, I had to prepare myself physically and mentally,” the actor told The Indian Express.
Also featuring Ashutosh Rana and Ranvir Shorey in significant roles, Sonchiriya has been helmed by Abhishek Chaubey, who has previously directed acclaimed films like Udta Punjab and Ishqiya.
