Ira Dubey, who is playing a typical lively Delhi girl in her upcoming movie Dilliwaali Zaalim Girlfriend, was easily able to adapt the character and do the role as she has spent a good amount of time in the city for her academic curriculum.
Speaking about her character Ira says, “My character Nimmi is pliant yet gutsy. I tried to make her as relatable as I could. She knows how to stand up for herself when wronged. The best part about the experience was associating with talented actors like Divyendu (Sharma), Pradhuman Singh and the inimitable Jackie Da (Jackie Shroff). Our director Japinder Kaur made sure that each character is fresh and the narrative has a contemporary Delhi setting.”
Debutant director Japinder adds, “We needed somebody who looked intelligent and I felt she has the aura of a strong woman. Her beauty is just a bonus.”
Dilliwaali Zaalim Girlfriend stars Divyendu Sharma, Ira Dubey, Jackie Shroff, Prachi Mishra and Pradhuman Singh, produced by Manjeet kaur and Tarnpreet Singh. The film’s music is on T-series and is distributed by Waves Cinema and is slated for 20th March release.
