Actress Seema Pahwa’s directorial debut to star Naseeruddin Shah and Konkona Sen Sharma
Film, television and theatre actress Seema Pahwa is all set to make her directorial debut. The actress became a household name thanks to her character Badki in the Doordarshan’s popular show ‘Hum Log’. She is also popularly known for her role in Ekta Kapoor’s ‘Kasamh Se’ and the recently released films ‘Bareilly Ki Barfi’ and ‘Shubh Mangal Saavdhan’ in which she played the mother of the lead actresses.
Confirming the news, the actress told Mumbai Mirror, “Yes I’m directing a film but I’m still finalising details so I cannot speak about it yet.” However, a source close to the film shared with the tabloid that Seema’s directorial will feature power-house performers Naseeruddin Shah, Konkona Sensharma, Vikrant Massey, Vinay Pathak and Parambrata Chatterjee. Besides these stars, Seema along with her actor-husband Manoj Pahwa will also star in the film.
Reportedly, the shooting of Seema’s film which is titled ‘Pind Daan’ will start in November this year. ‘Pind Daan’ is a family drama that will be shot across Lucknow and Mumbai.
Seema has worked with Naseeruddin in his play ‘Aurat Aurat Aurat’. It would be really nice to watch so many character actors star together in a film. Also, its been so long that we have seen Naseeruddin Shah star in a family drama.
However, with no official announcements made about who will be starring in this film, all we can do now is wait and watch. But considering the kind of terrific actress that Seema Pahwa is, we are all the more excited about her new role as a director.
