Proud of my role as Noor Jahan in ‘Talaq Talaq Talaq’: RJ Nethra

“There are plenty of tales that women hold within themselves that are waiting to be narrated. Probably the desire to do so has been so strong within me that I manifested this film,” smiles RJ Nethra speaking about her upcoming film ‘Talaq Talaq Talaq’.

Nethra plays Noor Jahan, a hapless and vulnerable homemaker whose entire life revolves around her family.

“Noor Jahan comes from an ultra-conservative Muslim family and has a husband who is an alcoholic. But the life she has constructed so carefully turns upside down when her husband pronounces ‘Talaq Talaq Talaq’ unexpectedly in a drunken stupor,” shares Nethra of her role on the film.
