Earlier we have reported that director Manish Gupta is making a film ‘Rahasya’ ‘based on Aarushi Talwar murder case. Already Manish had signed Tisca Chopra and Aashish Vidyarthi to play the role of Aarushi’s parents.
Sakshi Sem who acted as child artiste in films like Darna Zaroori Hai, Raju Chacha has chosen for the role.
Confirming the news Sakshi said, “Manish saw me near Mithibhai College and told me that he was planning a film on Aarushi and wanted me to play the lead role. I agreed to do the film without even looking at the script.”
When asked how she is preparing herself to play the role she said, “I followed the entire case and that helped me flesh out Aarushi. She is an innocent girl who respects her parents, but as is usual for a teenager, also has conflicts with them.”
“Sakshi was brilliant even as a nine-year-old when I directed her in Darna Zaroori Hai. In Rahasya I explore the issues that teenage girls face in an urban environment like sex, peer pressure and strained relationships with parents,”said the director.
