Nushrratt Bharuccha has begun shooting for Chhorii 2, a sequel to her 2021 release Chhorii.
Talking about the film she said, "It's really uncanny how Chhorii released last year around the same date and we started the shoot of the sequel for the same today. Chhorii is a film that has given me so much, I can't thank the universe enough. And also my power-packed team of Vishal sir, my co-stars and the crew on set who always made me push the envelope harder. In this past one year, we have received so much love for the film, which has kept us going and made us want to level up and give our 200 percent to the sequel."
She added: "For me, Sakshi (her character in the film) was an extremely challenging and tough character to crack. It was one of my toughest characters so far, as not only I was playing a pregnant woman in a world of horrors like this, but also someone who has to fight for her and her child's survival, whilst dealing with the social practice of female foeticide on screen, which is still prevalent in some parts of our country. It was a big responsibility, and I had to give full justice to it."
In Chhorii, Bharuccha played the role of a pregnant woman, who is haunted by the spirit of a slain pregnant woman, whose child was brutally murdered and she was left to die after being charred by her in-laws. Chhorii was a remake of the 2017 Marathi film Lapachhapi directed by Vishal Furia who also directed the Hindi version and will now be directing the sequel.
The actress has an interesting lineup of films such as Selfiee starring alongside her Ram Setu (2022) co-actor Akshay Kumar, and Emraan Hashmi. She also has Akelli, which is another solo lead film by the actress.
