Actress Swara Bhaskar, who chooses versatile roles in Hindi filmdom, will now be seen playing a mother of a 13-year-old girl in "Nil Battey Sannata". She is thrilled about it.
"I am very thrilled about playing a mother of a 13-year-old child. It's a very challenging role and I am very excited about it," Swara told IANS.
The reason for her immense excitement?
"I'm actually playing the role of woman in an age group which is elder than me. It's a challenging part and I didn't want to refuse it on the basis of fear of playing a mother," she added.
The film is to be directed by filmmaker Nitesh Tiwari's wife Ashwini Iyer Tiwari, and the "Raanjhanaa" actress began shooting for it Saturday.
"A major portion of the film will be shot in Agra. It's a lovely film which is presented by Nitesh Tiwari. He has written the script and his wife is directing it," she said.
