There are also reports that the duo are set to feature in a film together, to which Swara had said that it was “too early to comment”.
About director Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari, Sonam said: “You don’t even realize that it is Ashwiny’s first film; I had to ask her if it was her first. How well she has extracted work out of the actors! I am very impressed. I hadn’t watched it as I have been travelling for many months now. I was completely bowled over.I cried a lot in the film. At the interval point in the first half and constantly in the second half from the first minute till the end, I was crying.”
Nil Battey Sannata, which released on April 22, is a story of a domestic help played by Swara, who enrolls to study in the same school as her 15-year-old daughter to set an example.
“There are 2-3 USPs, the first that it is a mother-daughter story, a story of a mother. Our parents, our mothers give so many sacrifices in life by working hard for our dreams. In India, we kids are our mother’s dreams the most and that is what she has shown in the film. It’s beautifully done and also it talks about education,” Sonam added.
Sonam was last seen in the film Neerja.
