Acclaimed director Alankrita Shrivastava, whose last film Lipstick Under My Burkha sparked a national conversation and was also commercially successful, is ready with her next Dolly Kitty Aur Woh Chamakte Sitare. The awaited film is making some serious noise even before its release as it will be premiered at the prestigious Busan International Film Festival in October. The film stars two hugely acclaimed actors Bhumi Pednekar and Konkona Sensharma in the lead roles and Bhumi is hugely excited to show this film to audiences!
The versatile young actor, who is hailed as of the best actors in Bollywood today, is all praises for her director. She says, “Alankrita is someone I’ve wanted to collaborate as an artist. Her cinema is deeply moving and extremely meaningful and she has made a film that everyone will take notice. I loved her Lipstick Under My Burkha. It was brilliant, moving and captivating and Alankrita is just an outstanding person and a director. She has got everything out of me and I loved every second of my collaboration with her.”
Dolly Kitty Aur Woh Chamakte Sitare also stars Vikrant Massey and Amol Parashar in pivotal roles. The story follows two cousins (Bhumi and Konkona). “It’s a phenomenal story of sisterhood and about girls. I get to play this 22-year-old girl who is full of dreams and aspirations and it’s our coming of age – Konkona’s in her own way and me in my own way. Both Dolly and Kitty are full of ambition and for me it’s such an entertaining script and film. Alankrita has her own unique language of film-making and Dolly Kitty Aur Woh Chamakte Sitare is one of the best scripts that I have ever read. I couldn’t wait to do this film immediately after reading it.”
