Actress Anushka Kaushik, who acted in the webseries such as ‘Ghar Waapsi’ and Crash Course’, has been selected for the role in the movie ‘Patna Shukla’.
Actress said, “Speaking in the Bhojpuri language is very challenging to me and I put a lot of concentration to learn the language. I am not sure whether I will be able to do that or not when they called me. But they are very interested in me doing the role. I thought this is the suitable and perfect role for me”
“They saw many characteristics of me and then they got confident about me to play that role in the movie, I asked them to prepare Bhojpuri for the day, and I gave the audition,” She said.
Recollecting the audition of the day actress said that she had seen many people and different faces and known faces, I thought that this was a big project. I had gone into the audition hall and wished politely as my character was this way. There had Arabaaz sir and director around 5-6 people.
“Midway during my first take, I asked to start again, and then it took just one take for me to do the entire scene. At the end of it, everyone started clapping but I still asked them for one more take. They told me that they had gotten what they wanted but I could do one more take if I wanted to. Then in a day or two, I got the call that I was doing the film.”
Anushka briefed about her character: “It is a parallel lead alongside Raveena Tandon ma’am and the whole set up of the character and the story is very different. I have never been a part of any story set in Patna or even visited the city, but I know to prepare for this role, I would love to go there. The journey of this character is very different, yet it still has some relatability with the real Anushka.”
Starring Raveena Tandon, Anushka Kaushik, Satish Kaushik, Chandan Roy Sanyal, and Jatin Goswami amongst others, ‘Patna Shukla’is all set to release next year.
