Sherni trailer: Vidya Balan is a woman on a hunt!
The trailer of Vidya Balan’s new film ‘Sherni’ has been released online. The film is directed by Amit Masurkar, whose previous film ‘Newton’ was selected as the Indian entry for the Best Foreign Language Film at the 90th Academy Awards. From the trailer, it is learnt that Vidya Balan plays a character named Vidya, who is on a mission to capture a tigress, which has made life impossible in a rural village. She leads a team of trackers and locals to find the tigress, while also battling sexism and other intense obstacles, both natural and man-made.
‘Sherni’ seems to be inspired by the story of Avni or T1, a real-life tigress, which is believed to have been responsible for the deaths of 13 people in Maharashtra. Avni’s killing had led to massive outrage across the country. Aastha Tiku has scripted the film while dialogues are penned by Amit Masurkar and Yashasvi Mishra. Along with Vidya, the cast also includes Vijay Raaz, Neeraj Kabi, Ila Arun, Sharat Saxena and Brijendra Kala among others.
‘Sherni’ is scheduled to premiere on Amazon Prime Video on June 18, 2021.
