On Saturday (November 28), the first song from Durgamati titled Baras Baras was unveiled. The song featured Bhumi Pednekar and Karan Kapadia, who are paired opposite each other in the film.
Recently, Bhumi had opened up about her role in the film and had said, “Durgamati is a first for me where I didn’t have a plan. Usually for every characterization of mine, I had a set of plans. ‘Okay, I have to do my language…the body language.’ Cause usually I play characters from heartland India; they are very away from me. But this girl, Chanchal Chauhan is somebody I can identify with. She is an IAS officer. (So) my preparation was more about the mindset because she is somebody who has serves time, she has behind bars for murdering someone. What her thinking would be like, is something that I worked on. It wasn’t body language or dialect but about how do I think like a person who has spent time. And because she is an officer, there is a certain air about her, her job and a certain pride that she has for the same. And that’s why I feel that she is a lot like me because I find a lot of pride in being an Indian. There were a lot of things where I connected with her but literally this is the first time that I didn’t have a plan of action.
“I completely succumbed to the vision that my director had because it’s a genre that I can’t really imagine. It is not something that I have ever done and I did not want to put in my two bits. And this is someplace where I had to completely surrender. This narrative is a very visual medium, specially when it’s a conspiracy horror-thriller. It’s really driven by the plot points, the audio cues, the visual elements that add on to the film. For me, getting the middle of it, only would’ve spoilt it. It had to be a one-man vision. I have only gone and perform and my best was to do justice to my director’s vision,” she had added.
Directed by G. Ashok, the film is a remake of his own 2018 Telugu-Tamil film Bhaagamathie featuring Anushka Shetty. The film is presented by T-Series and Akshay Kumar’s Cape of Good Films and is an Abundantia Entertainment production.
Durgamati is all set to premiere on Amazon Prime Video on December 11.
