The Runaway Bride

Shweta Tripathi in awe of her character who leaves her in-law’s house because there was no toilet there

After playing a teenager in her last two cinematic outings, ‘Masaan’ and ‘Haraamkhor’, actor Shweta Tripathi is all set to shock her fans with her runaway bride act in ‘Good Morning Sunshine’.

Directed by Sanjay Nag, the film centres’ around the lack of sanitation and toilet facilities in rural areas and her character Leelavati is inspired by Priyanka Bharti, who left her in-law’s house in her bridal finery because there was no toilet there. Tripathi, who recently met Priyanka, was in awe of her bravery. “I still find it incredible that a girl could dare to run away from her in-law’s house because there was not toilet at home and that too in her bridal dress. I can’t stop admiring that girl for her guts” Tripathi exclaimed.

In ‘Good Morning Sunshine’ Tripathi shares screen space with other acting power houses including Revathy, Rituparna Sengupta, and Tejaswini Kolhapure. Moreover, Shabana Azmi also has a cameo in the film. “I was thrilled to be a part of such a power-packed acting ensemble. The actors come from diverse backgrounds, and there was so much to learn from all of them. But I was excited to work with Revathy. She’s calm, mature and intelligent, and a rock star. I loved every bit of being with her, interacting and above all listening to her. I got a little more time with her so because we shared the vanity van” gushed Tripathi.

The film has music by MM Keeravani, whose Baahubali 2 is slated for release later this month. “It feels great to have a big name like MM Kreem on board,” she says. In between, Tripathi is super excited to meet the new boy in her life. The boy is just two-days-old and son of her Haraamkhor director Shlok Sharma.

Tripathi has just wrapped up the shoot for Good Morning Sunshine and is currently busy reading scripts at home.
