Shabana Azmi fights for the right

The actress to play a crusader of social justice in a film.

Director Ajay Phansekar is all set to give a fresh lease of life to his project starring Shabana Azmi, Raquesh Vashisht, Anjorie Alag and Urvashi Sharma. The film apparently was earlier stuck due to financial issues.

The film revolves around the female protagonist, played by Shabana Azmi, who becomes a victim of social politics and her struggle to beat the odds. Shabana plays mother to Anjorie’s character while Raquesh plays her son-in-law.

Speaking about his experience of working with Shabana, Raquesh Vashisht points out,

It was brilliant to work with her. I was in complete awe of her mannerisms. She keeps improvising her scenes on the sets. I got to learn many things from her.

Suniel Shetty was originally slated to produce the film.
