Shraddha Das

Actress Shraddha Das is all set to play a prostitute in Shringardaan, a short film being directed by renowned cinematographer Deepak Pandey.

Talking about the project, Shraddha says, “Shringardaan is set in ‘90s. It is the story of a beautiful relationship that blossoms between a young prostitute Shaiba  and Gupta, a principled and disciplined middle-aged man who is against the profession of prostitution. While living in a brothel in Lucknow, Shaiba meets Gupta.”

The actress says that she signed the film because she found her role to be challenging. “There’s a lot more to the role than meets the eye; the character has several emotions and the film gives me a great opportunity to exhibit them. Also, there’s a lot of research that has gone into the development of my wardrobe for the part.”
