The trailer of Saand Ki Aankh released yesterday and we were truly impressed by the storyline and the power-packed performances by its main leads – Taapsee Pannu and Bhumi Pednekar – who play Chandro and Prakashi Tomar.
The film was already making headlines, thanks to its subject, and we were further intrigued that it was being shouldered by two mainstream Bollywood heroines. In fact, the latter was one of the many reasons Taapsee instantly agreed to do the film.
I always wanted to do a film where two heroines have equal roles. When I heard the narration, I had tears in my eyes and within 10 seconds, I said yes to the film. I feel Chandro and Prakashi Tomar are big inspiration to the people of our country.
The Game Over actress further said that she would like to dedicate the film to her mother because she, like most other women, has lived her life for those surrounding her.
Listening to their story, I just couldn’t stop thinking about my mother because it’s a story of those women who have lived their life for their parents, husband and kids but they never lived their life on their own terms. My mother is 60 years, so this is special. At this stage, I feel like telling her I want to be a reason for her to live her life the way she wants to. I hope she gets that through this film.
We hope these wonderful ladies are able to push across their message through the film and more women find the inspiration to realise their dreams.
