Actress Swara Bhaskar says her upcoming film “Anaarkali of Aaarah” caters to audience across sections, be it the classes or the masses. “I hope we are able to bring in more audience from heartland of India to see the film. I think this film will appeal to cross section. It’s an exciting world and it generates curiosity among multiplex and educated audience and even women. The film has universal appeal,” Swara said at the trailer launch of “Anaarkali of Aaarah”. “For this film, we have got response from the elite class of people and people like auto drivers.”
“Anaarkali of Aaarah” revolves around an erotic singer (Swara) from Arrah in Bihar, who sings double meaning songs. One day things take an ugly turn when Anaarkali has a confrontation with a very powerful man who molested her and instead of bowing down she chooses to fight back.
“There were no inhibitions. When we came for shoot, there was trust and faith with the team including co-actors. I had requested the director and producer to have some people on board who I know, like Pankaj Tripathi with whom I had worked on ‘Nil Battey Sannata’,” she says.
The film, directed by debutant journalist turned filmmaker Avinash Das, is scheduled to release on March 24.
