On the occasion of Women's Day on Friday, it was announced that actress Huma Qureshi will be seen playing a female auto rickshaw driver in a yet-untitled film, directed by Vipul Mehta.

The untitled drama unfolds the true story of an auto rickshaw driver, a woman of iron will and vision. It pays homage to the courage of ordinary women doing extraordinary things.

Huma said, "To depict a character with such indomitable spirit is a rare and cherished opportunity. It's particularly poignant that we announce this project on Women's Day -- a day that celebrates the power and dignity of women."

On collaborating with Vishal, Huma stated, "I am thrilled to collaborate with Vishal, a filmmaker who is committed to telling these powerful stories of women, recognising the need for men to be allies in sharing our narratives and Jio Studios, a studio dedicated to consistently championing narratives featuring resilient female characters and supporting the artistic vision of filmmakers."

Vishal, the driving force behind Echelon Productions, said, "We are eagerly anticipating a fruitful collaboration with the immensely talented Huma Qureshi. As we prepare to commence filming soon, we feel privileged to have her on board."

"We truly believe in women power and will continue to state that 'HAMARI CHORIYAN CHORO SE KAM NAHI HAI.'" he added.

Jio Studios Presents, an Echelon Productions Film, directed by Vipul Mehta, produced by Jyoti Deshpande and Vishal Rana. Other details of the film are still under wraps.
