Mumbai: Chuha Billi, a film that takes audience on a psychopath thriller journey of Adah Sharma who is all set to appear on the big screen as Katrina, the lead role in the film.
Adah Sharma shares the screen with Anupriya Goenka, who is also known as very good actress after given some phenomenal performances in Criminal Justice, War, Padmavat and Tiger Zinda Hai. Chuha Billi is directed by Prasad Kadam and produced by FNP Media.
The film’s story revolves around Katrina, who is suffering from mental health issues. “Chuha billi is a dark subject. I play a girl who is bipolar. She is depressed and she isn’t coping with it well. I would like to believe I’m exactly the opposite of this character, and that’s what attracted me the most to playing her. We did a lot of workshops for the film, too,” Adah told IANS. She added that the film’s director Prasad Kadam wanted her to show her switching “poles in just seconds”.
“She’s very excited about something and very sad in just seconds. He also wanted the changeover being subtle so mostly it all lies in the eyes. I can’t wait for people to watch the film with all the love coming in for just the teaser and the poster,” Adah said. “This is very different from anything I’ve done so far ,” she added.
The character is multi-layered and complex and this should be Adah’s best performance till date, according to the filmmakers; mental illness is a very serious and complex topic, which should be dealt with sensitively.
“We wanted to make sure that we made a sensible film. We didn’t want to romanticise or victimise one who are suffering from mental illness. Adah and Anupriya both have done a fantastic job of being true to their characters,” said Kadam.
Echoing the director, content head of FNP Media Ahmad Faraz said, “This is a special movie for us. To be able to present this movie aligns with our future goals as well. Both Adah and Anupriya are great performers and we are taking this as our first association of the many with these artists.”
