The trailer for Vidya Balan star “Sherni” was released on Wednesday. The actress says the film, due for release on June 18, deals with a sensitive topic that touches on respect, mutual understanding and coexistence, not only between man and animal, but also between humans.
“Ever since I heard Sherni’s story for the first time, I have found the world fascinating and so far removed from my own. Also, the character I play, Vidya, is a woman of few words but many dimensions, ”Vidya said.
The film will see Vidya Balan as a forestry officer with integrity who fights the social barrier established by patriarchal society and the nonchalant attitudes within her department.
“The film deals with a sensitive subject which touches on respect, mutual understanding and coexistence, not only between man and animal, but also between humans,” said Vidya Balan.
“Sherni” is directed by Amit Masurkar, who previously directed “Newton” and “Sulemani Keeda”.
Speaking about his work on this unconventional artist, Masurkar said, “’Sherni’ is a story on many levels, exploring the complex issues of the conflict between humanity and animals. Vidya Balan plays a mid-level forestry officer who, despite obstacles and pressures, works with his team and local allies to keep the environment balanced.
The film also features Neeraj Kabi, Vijay Raaz, Sharat Saxena, Mukul Chadda, Brijendra Kala and Ila Arun in supporting roles.
The film is slated for digital release on Amazon Prime Video.
