Bollywood actress Vidya Balan has shared the first look of her upcoming film ‘Sherni’. Balan will be seen in the role of a forest officer in the movie. Helmed by Amit Masurkar, the film will release on the OTT platform Amazon Prime Video.
Vidya shared the poster with her Instagram followers with the caption, “Fearless as she steps out into the world!”
The film is expected to be an intriguing drama where Vidya Balan’s character will be seen in high stake situations, trying to strike a balance between man and animals. Trying to protect the voiceless animals from the cruelty of egoistic humans, Vidya will embody a fresh and unique avatar for her upcoming film ‘Sherni’.
Vikram Malhotra, Producer, and CEO – Abundantia Entertainment in a statement said “After the successful and much-loved collaboration for Shakuntala Devi in 2020, I am delighted to partner once again with Amazon Prime Video as we take Abundantia Entertainment’s latest film to the world. Sherni is one of the most special and important stories that we’ve worked on and Amit’s evocative take on a highly relevant subject, laced with his trademark satire, will make for a compelling watch. I’m also very excited for the fans of Vidya Balan to see her in the unique avatar of a forest officer!”
Meanwhile T-Series’ Bhushan Kumar stated, “‘Sherni’ is one of the most unconventional and engaging films I have had a chance to produce and I am thrilled that it’s premiering on Amazon Prime Video as the movie will travel to a global audience.
