Shikha Talsania to play a Yoga practitioner in her first Marathi film Shantit Kranti

Actress Shikha Talsania who was recently seen in films like “Veere Di Wedding”, “Wake Up Sid” and “Coolie No.1” made her fire debut in Marathi Film as a Yoga practitioner in Shantit Kranti directed by Sarang Sathaye and Paula McGlynn.

The actress shared her learning experience while making the film as it was not easy for her. Though the actress made up her mind that things can be hard but not impossible. Her character in the films highlights the importance of meditation and mental well-being. The actress also shares that the experience was worth it. Her character truly ponders upon bringing out hard-hitting elements about friendships and life in general. She says, “Shooting for ‘Shantit Kranti’ has been a great learning and a heart-warming experience. Marathi was a new language for me and learning it and performing had its own challenges but it was all worth it and made very easy by a supportive team,”

The actress was completely unaware about the language. However, Shikha Tiwaro’s confidence for the role took her less than a week to make herself look flawless on-screen and her command over the language.

The actress shares, “Right from my directors, co-actors and everyone else who had faith in me, I’ve succeeded in now fluently speaking the language. A shoutout to the best coach, Chetan who is also one of the writers of the show, he was extremely patient and very encouraging”

On reference to her experience while doing this film Shikha also says, “It has been an exhilarating experience shooting for SK! Initially, it was challenging to perform while speaking a language that I wasn’t very comfortable with. In such cases, you don’t trust your own improvisation or if an actor changes one of the cues, you’re completely lost. But I had the best coach, Chetan, who is also one of the writers of the show, he was extremely patient, very encouraging, and literally helped me pick up the language with ease. Having said that, I also had the best directors, co-actors, and the entire team that truly watched out for me and guided me with my pronunciations etc. I’m excited to start a journey with SonyLIV by being part of a fun-filled project that helped me look beyond and learn.”

The film will also stars popular Marathi actors, Abhay Mahajan as Shreyas, Alok Rajwade as Dinar, and Lalit Prabhakar as Prasanna in the lead roles.
