Saiyami Kher, who won rave reviews for her performance in Ghoomer and her hosting skills in the cricket chats during the World Cup, is all set to collaborate with acclaimed filmmaker Neeraj Pandey for his next project.
The cricket film Ghoomer may not have done good business at the box office, but this movie has brought Saiyami back into the public eye. It is commendable that actress Saiyami Kher has got the support of a director like Neeraj Pandey due to the praise she received for Ghoomer.
According to a source close to the development as per a report in Times Now, “Saiyami has agreed to do the film. The shoot starts around February 15. It’s a 30-day shoot, which will also complete the film in one-go. The other modalities are fast being worked out.”
The source further revealed, “Saiyami was Neeraj’s first choice for the role. The movie is a Netflix original.” The film is said to be a woman-centric thriller with Saiyami playing the protagonist.
Neeraj was bowled over by Saiyami Kher’s performance in Ghoomer and since then, had been toying with the idea of casting her in a big role. The film in question will see Saiyami in the lead; it’s a woman-oriented film and an author-backed role.
Saiyami Kher made her Bollywood debut with Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra’s Mirzya in 2016. She then appeared in the web series Special Ops and Breathe: Into the Shadows.
