Set to release on the 26th of November is the horror flick Chhorii starring Nushrratt Bharuccha. The actress is ready to take you on a bone-chilling ride in this paranormal thriller that will stream on Amazon Prime for horror fans around the world.
The film’s story traces the journey of Sakshi (played by Nushrratt Bharuccha) and her partner as they are forced to flee their city home and seek shelter in a house within a haunted sugarcane field. Soon, the couple realise that the shelter they once sought for refuge from danger is in fact the very location for a seriously sinister paranormal threat. The housewife, eight months pregnant, must now fight to save her unborn baby from the spirits out to snatch her away.

Here is some interesting news! Nushrratt, who as we have seen plays a to-be-mother, decided to go the extra pound to get into the skin of this character. She actually wore a pregnant bodysuit 25 days before she started the shoot for the film. Opening up on her decision, Bharuccha said, ” As I’m not actually going to become pregnant for now in reality, I had them make that bodysuit for me to feel what a woman bearing child actually goes through. I was wearing it 20-25 days before the film’s shoot started, and literally did all of my chores including eating, sleeping, going to bathroom, roaming around and everything else to understand the restrictions that it comes with. I had to put myself in it to be able to self-learn everything that’s related to pregnancy, and then bring them on set with a more realistic facet that the masses can connect to. Though, it wasn’t a prop for me but a part of me, I became so used to it that when the shooting began, I felt more comfortable while resting in between the rehearsals in the body suit.”
Nushrratt added, “Since we’ve moved to a very realistic cinema, we don’t need to spoon-feed things to the audience. It needs to be so subtle and subliminal that the audience at a subconscious level are convinced to assume you’re pregnant without you actually telling them through conventional actions. It’s been a little tough to adjust with the bodysuit while sleeping or going to the bathroom or while doing mid-squats, but above all every woman has a different pregnancy, and sometimes it’s difficult to carry it along with you.”
Directed by Vishal Furia and Produced by T-Series, Crypt TV, and Abundantia Entertainment, Chhorii, which is a remake of the Marathi film Lapachhapi, is slated to stream on 26th November 2021, on Prime Video across 240 countries and territories worldwide.
