Swara Bhaskar: It’s very challenging to play mother to 13-year-old

The versatile actor will now be seen playing a mother of a 13-year-old girl in Nil Battey Sannata. She is thrilled about it

“I am very thrilled about playing a mother of a 13-year-old child. It’s a very challenging role and I am very excited about it,” said Swara Bhaskar.

The reason for her immense excitement? “I’m actually playing the role of woman in an age group which is elder than me. It’s a challenging part and I didn’t want to refuse it on the basis of fear of playing a mother,” she added.

The film is to be directed by filmmaker Nitesh Tiwari’s wife Ashwini Iyer Tiwari, and the Raanjhanaa actor began shooting for it on Saturday. “A major portion of the film will be shot in Agra. It’s a lovely film which is presented by Nitesh Tiwari. He has written the script and his wife is directing it,” she said.
