Known for his critically acclaimed short film Sisak, Faraz Ansari is all set for his big feature film now. His first feature film is about a Parsi woman and her tryst with gender crisis. Shweta Tripathi, who was nominated for the Filmfare Award for Best Female Debut last year for Masaan will be playing the lead role. The film also stars famous theatre personality Sheraz Patel in a pivotal part. However, a primary trans character’s casting has not been finalised yet. But filmmaker Faraz Ansari spoke about considering Amitabh Bachchan for another crucial role in the film.
Talking about it to a leading portal, he revealed, “I think it is every Indian filmmaker’s dream to work with Mr Bachchan because he truly unites India and Indians. His mastery and prowess as an actor, his humility behind the cameras and his true power and influence to truly bring in a positive change in our hearts and society are the reasons I would be honoured to have him do a very, special guest appearance in Sabr. The character, though in just a few scenes through the film, is perhaps the most
unforgettable character of Sabr and someone the audience will take back home with, to remember on rainy days and starry nights, just the way one remembers our first love. Once I have the cast of Sabr locked, I will be approaching Mr Bachchan. Fingers crossed.”
