After playing the role of an illiterate domestic help in ‘Nil Battey Sannata’ which won her rave reviews, Swara Bhaskar is all set to play the role of a sex worker in the adaptation of Aditya Kripalani’s ‘Tikli and Laxmi Bomb’.
The story revolves around two sex workers who decided to form a co-operative to take on the patriarchy.
Swara was quoted as saying that she will be playing the role of 22-year-old Tikli while Marathi actress Vibhavari Deshpande will play Laxmi’s character in the movie. “The role will definitely be a challenging one, and I have to really put in my best to lend it authenticity,” says the actress.
“Aditya approached me and asked me to read the book first. When I did, I realised that he was doing the right thing by turning his work into a film. It’s a great plot, a great role and I think it will make for a really interesting watch. It will show the world of se*x workers through an imaginative and empathetic lens,” Swara said, about being a part of the film.
The film will roll in January and will be shot in real locations.
