Actress Amyra Dastur, who is playing an NRI in the film, sat with Deva Katta, who is directing the Hindi remake and Maanyata Dutt, the producer of the film, to discuss her character’s look for the film. Deva wanted to build a more likeable and modern edge to the character, but it was Maanyata who thought of deep purple streaks to intensify the quirkiness and fun element for Amyra’s role.
“I love experimenting with my look. I truly believe that it’s our job as actors to bring a character to life and if that means changing your look, then so be it,” she said. Her co-stars in the film, Sanjay Dutt, Jackie Shroff, Ali Fazal and Manisha Koirala, also loved the look and said it was ‘different and cool’.
Sanjay Dutt on 1 June took to Twitter, where he shared a few photographs from the set. Victoria and Abdul actor Ali Fazal, Manisha Koirala and Manyata Dutt can be seen in the pictures.
In 'Prasthaanam', Manisha will be seen as the Dutt's wife and 'Always Kabhi Kabhi' fame Satyajeet Dubey will play the role of his son. Apart from Manisha, Sanjay and Satyajeet, the film also stars Ali Fazal and Amyra Dastur in pivotal roles. The film is originally written and directed by Deva Katta who will also direct Hindi version of the film.
