Bollywood has come a long way from doing the run of mill masala flicks. Nowadays, content-driven quality cinema is beginning to dominate the scene which means the actors also have newer and challenging avenues to work with. Of course being professionals, most actors put in a lot of hard work and dedication into their roles. However, there are few who go beyond and to extreme lengths just out of love for the craft. Babumoshai Bandookbaaz actress Bidita Bag has made a name for herself by being a thorough professional towards her craft even if, it means going the extra mile to get under the skin of her character. She walked barefoot in Bhopal to train herself to take on her role in Sree Varun “Daya Bai”. “It was very, very hard for me but I knew I had to prove myself as an actor. The preparation for this film was a painful process for me emotionally. I knew that for media and people to love my character, I prepared really hard. I am not like Daya Bai. I was trying to find a body language, posture and voice command.
A Hindi biopic on the renowned social activist Daya Bai directed by Shree Varun and produced by Shyse Eapan under the banner of Vettam Movies will hit the screens in April 2020. Daya Bai works among the tribal of central India to better their lot.
