Kirti is thrilled to play Gulabo, the queen of Kalbelia, in Sooper Se Ooper
Remember Kirti Kulhari? Yes, the same gal whom Kalki Koechlin kissed in Bejoy Nambiar’s Shaitan. She has now signed her next film. And the lucky actor will be portraying Kalbelia dancer Gulabo. Kirti told a tabloid that she was thrilled to bag this role in the film Sooper Se Ooper, to be directed by Shekhar Ghosh. The fact that she is a Rajasthani herself means playing a Rajasthani girl “came effortlessly” to her. She is fluent in the dialect and didn’t have to work on her accent. All she had to do was practise her dancing skills, and do that a lot.
Though the source of inspiration for Kirti’s role is Gulabo, the character in the film is slightly different. Gulabo is a skilled Kalbelia dancer, but Kirti’s character can perform several different forms of dances. But the actor is undeterred. She is already planning strategies for publicising the movie. “It would be great if we invite Gulabo while promoting the movie,” she told the tabloid. Kirti, concentrate on your performance first, leave the publicity planning for later.
