Madhur Bhandarkar describes award-winning actress Konkona Sen Sharma, who plays a sex worker in his film Traffic Signal, as an "ideal choice" for the role.
"I felt she would be the ideal choice for the character though she hasn't ever played such a role on screen so far. Her approach to acting and her attitude led me to cast her for the role," said Bhandarkar.
He is currently shooting for the film at breakneck speed in Nitin Desai's ND Studio on the outskirts of Mumbai, reports Bollywood Trade.
According to Bhandarkar, the producers - Sahara One - are planning to take the film to the international festival circuit before releasing it in India.
The film, also starring Kunal Khemu and Ranvir Sheorey, tracks down life at Mumbai's traffic signals.
