Actress Auroshikha Dey has played a challenging role in the upcoming movie Chatrapathi, an official adaptation of S.S. Rajamouli’s 2005 Telugu film by the same name.
Auroshikha acting philosophy is to keep the method organic yet spontaneous – bringing out multi-layered characters with complex emotions. An ardent aficionado of new-wave, expressionism and avant-garde style, she draws her creative stimulus from a wide variety of subjects including history, culture, politics, literature and most of all – people! She owes this to her alma mater – the prestigious Film and Television Institute of India (Pune) where she got trained in the ‘craft of acting’ by industry’s finest performers and accomplished veterans. Though, her journey as an artist started much before.
The film stars Bellamkonda Sreenivas in his Hindi debut in the lead role.
Auroshikha Dey will be playing the character of Manju Ben. A mother whose life takes an unexpected turn, setting the tone for the second half of the film.
With no time for workshops due to the immediate aftermath of the lockdown, Auroshikha took an unconventional approach to prepare for her role.
She put in the hard work and dedication to get into the skin of her character. Even performing household chores while wearing a blindfold to understand the struggles of visually-impaired people.
With actors such as Bellamkonda Sreenivas and Nushrratt Bharuccha in lead roles. The Chatrapathi remake is shaping up to be an exciting and must-watch film.
Directed by V.V. Vinayak, the film is set to release on May 12.
