After sharing a glimpse through the teaser, the makers, have finally released the trailer of their much-awaited film ‘Sherni.’ The film will see Vidya Balan in the lead, as an upright Forest officer – Vidya, who powers through the brutal beasts of social barrier set by the patriarchal society and the lackadaisical attitudes within her department.
The exciting trailer showcases Vidya’s incredible journey, set in the world full of quirky yet relatable characters, as she navigates through her marriage with her rather unusual job, all this while trying to resolve the man-animal conflict.
Along with Vidya Balan, there is a powerful ensemble cast comprising of versatile artists such as Sharat Saxena, Mukul Chadda, Vijay Raaz, Ila Arun, Brijendra Kala and Neeraj Kabi.
Sharing her excitement on the trailer launch, the versatile actress Vidya Balan said in a statement shared to us by her team:
“Ever since I first heard the story of Sherni, I found the world fascinating and so far removed from my own. Also the character I play, Vidya is a woman of few words but many dimensions. The film deals with a sensitive topic that touches upon respect, mutual understanding, and co-existence, not just between man-animal, but between humans as well. It gives me immense joy to bring this unique character and story to the global audience through Amazon Prime Video and hope to engage them in unexpected ways.”
The prolific director, Amit Masurkar added:
"Sherni is an intricately-layered story, exploring the complex issues of conflict between humankind and animals. Vidya Balan plays a mid-level forest officer who despite obstacles and pressures, works with her team and local allies to preserve a balance in the environment. Working with her, the amazing ensemble cast and the uber-talented crew has been an incredible experience for me.”
Producer Bhushan Kumar expresses his excitement on the trailer release of Sherni and calls it a special film.
Producer Vikram Malhotra adds:
“I am extremely proud to be a part of Sherni and I can’t wait for the world to see this unconventionally inspiring story with Vidya Balan in fine form.”
