Actress Ridhima Sud has been receiving rave reviews for her role in Kajarya. Not many are aware that the actress had to go through intense research for her role where she had to trail a real journalist in order to get into the skin of the character. While preparing for the film she actually witnessed the trial of the accused men in the Nirbhaya incident.
Standing at a 15 feet distance from the accused the actress was horrified at the scene. The defense lawyer only seemed to be concerned with finding his 15 minutes of fame as described by her. “Nobody tells you it’s not OK to cry at one of these things. I was in tears from feeling rage and the kind of pain that only a woman can feel for another…” exclaimed Ridhima.
The story of Kajarya revolves around female infanticide where Ridhima plays the role of a reporter. The film is a top contender for the National Awards to be held next year.
The Nirbhaya incident is one that resonates even till today in the heart of every Indian citizen.
