In the recent media interaction, Saiyami Kher who will be seen playing the role of a para-athlete, a cricket prodigy in R.Balki's Ghoomer said that it is not at all an easy role for her as although she grew up playing cricket, in this film, she has to portray a character with a disability.

"I play the role of a left-handed bowler in Ghoomer and, for me, in real life, I am a right-handed player. I could never actually step into the shoes of a real-life para-athlete, but even the small hurdles I had to overcome being an athlete myself, reminded me of things we take for granted," Kher said.

She added: "Preparing and filming for Ghoomer opened my eyes in a way that I never thought would happen. It was a physically and emotionally challenging time, but my struggles were minuscule when compared to those heroes who make our country proud by participating in so many sports as para-athletes".

The actress is best known for her performances in Mirzya (2016), streaming series like Unpaused, Special Ops and Breathe: Into the Shadows and the recent release Faadu starring alongside Pavail Gulati.

Ghoomer stars Abhishek Bachchan, Angad Bedi, and Shabana Azmi in pivotal roles. Bachchan plays Kher's coach and Bedi plays her love interest in the movie. The film, which is currently in the post-production stage, is co-written by Balki, along with Rahul Sengupta and Rishi Virmani.
