Divya DuttaActress Divya Dutta is doing a Meena Kumari by reliving the black and white era in her forthcoming film, Chehre, being touted as the first black and white film to be made in todays’ time. The film is directed by debutant Rohit Kaushik.

“I’m excited about this movie. I’ve always been a fan of Meena Kumari and Nutan. Playing a character based in the 50’s for a black and white movie was like stepping into their shoes,” she says, adding, “I’m glad that directors are coming up with innovative ideas and interesting subjects these days and are ready to experiment with the look of the film, as per the demands of script. When I heard that the film was not in colour, but rather in black and white, I was taken aback. I immediately said yes”.

Actress Manisha Koirala plays Dutta’s sister in the film.
