The dusky actor is back in front of the camera and this time she would be part of a Spanish project which has an all women crew and she would learn dancing from Saroj Khan for the role
Nandita Das is busy shooting for Traces Of Sandalwood, her debut Spanish film. She would also be working for an all women crew and also do the latka jhatkas taught by dance master Saroj Khan. It is said that the entire crew is an all women’s team right from the producer, scriptwriter, director, director of photography to the art director, etc which, in itself is an exciting opportunity.
Based on Anna Soler-Pont’s book by the same name, the movie is the tale of two sisters. Nandita portrays the character of an actor who comes to know that her lost sister has been adopted and is dwelling in Spain. She goes in search of her even though the sister denies having Indian blood in her. Also Nandita would be doing a full-fledged Bollywood song-and-dance number which will be choreographed by Saroj Khan, which is an important part of the climax. Nandita confesses that matching up to the steps of Saroj Khan’s was not easy. She informs that Sarojji is extremely patient and professional. We think that it would be a welcome change to see the superb actor in a new avatar as she has been mostly working from home post her marriage. What do you say BollywoodLifers??
