Highlight Story

Arthouse actor Nandita Das, who is back after her maternity break, is all set to wow the audience with her acting chops in a Tamil and Hindi venture this year.

Nandita, who was last seen on the silver screen in Onir's National Award-winning film I Am (2011), will now feature in an untitled Tamil movie with director Seenu Ramaswamy. In Hindi cinema, she will be seen in debutant director Devashish Makhija's film.

“I am doing two films in May. It is the first time I am doing a film after my baby was born. Both are very interesting stories with rural characters, but there are no songs,” says Nandita.

Revealing the storyline of both the two films, she says, “The Tamil film is based on the fishing community, about how a fisherman gets lost at sea. The Hindi film is about Maoists, the strife with villagers, the struggle between the CRPF and the Maoists (sic). Both are very pertinent and contemporary subjects and I am happy to be part of them.”

Nandita is expected to start shooting for both the films next month.
