The plot is no less than that of a Bollywood movie. Failing to convince his nephew Ernesto to marry for money rather than love, Don Pasquale takes the task on himself to find a bride, produce an heir and deprive Ernesto of his large inheritance.
Dr Malatesta, a family friend, makes a plan to foil his idea. He arranges a fake marriage between Don Pasquale and the young Norina, who is actually Ernesto’s beloved.
Aude Priya, who plays the character of Norina, says, “My character plays three roles; first role is that of a sincere girl in love with a man, the next is that of a seducer and the third is of a mean woman.”
