Soha Ali Khan in Kolkata to Promote Chaarfutiya Chhokare
Bollywood actress Soha Ali Khan and producer Vibha Dutta Khoshla were in the city to promote their upcoming film Chaarfutiya Chhokare.
“The film Chaarfutiya Chhokare is a low budget film which revolves around the highly topical issue of child trafficking” said producer Vibha Dutta Khoshla.
The main plot of the film revolves around an NRI girl named Neha Malini. She returns back to her homeland with the objective of setting up a school in the northern part of Bihar. In the process she had to face many obstacles. Whether she is able to overcome them and emerge the winner is what the film is all about.
“My character Neha is a NRI girl who is very outgoing and even knows how to drive a car, even though in real life I have not ever driven a car. Hence this was very challenging for me. I also grew up in the city like my on-screen character Neha. I never got to visit villages or interact with the children there. Hence this film gave me an immense opportunity to fulfill these wishes. I also have not seen young children with guns in their hands. I have heard about child labor, child prostitution. But when you do the role in a film you connect with the emotions and understand it better” said the actress.
Soha also mentioned that unless she learns to drive a car and cook for herself, she will never be an independent woman. “I pretty much depend blindly on my staff on these two issues” added the pretty actress with a smile.
When asked about the onscreen character that Soha can relate best with she said that Sanjana, her character in the film Tum Mile was one which is more or less like the real Soha. Her next film is October 31, where she plays the role of a Sardarni and will be paired with Vir Das. She also added that it gave her immense thrill to go out of her comfort zone and try out different roles. The film also stars Zakir Hussain and Seema Biswas in pivotal roles. The film has been written and directed by Manish Harishankar.
Chaarfutiya Chhokare which is slated for release this Friday i.e September 26 is definitely a must watch as not only does it present the pretty and suave Soha in a very different avatar but also bring to the fore some very pertinent issues that have plagued the society today.
