Ace filmmaker Vishal Bharadwaj is back, this time with an interesting film, Pataakha, a story about two sisters, Chutki and Badki, played by Sanya Malhotra and Radhika Madan.

In an exclusive interview with Mumbai Live, the sister duo shares their journey about the film with some interesting insights.

Those who have seen the trailer of the film will vouch for the fact that the filmmaker has completely altered the look that she has been sporting until now on screen. He will be introducing her as one of the two quarreling sisters, the other being Sanya Malhotra, it the rustic drama.

Both Sanya and Radhika underwent an extensive workshop for their film. Talking about the same, they said, “Working with Atul Mongia and Vishal Bharadwaj before the shoot really helped us a lot, as we could relate to what the characters were, and both helped us realise how we could overcome the limitations. Our improvisations in the movie are a result of those sessions because we truly discovered Badki and Chutki during workshops. Vishal sir says, Atul is a psychiatrist, and that stands true as he reads you completely and his understanding and skill helped us keep ourselves aside, and be who we were supposed to be, for this film.”

From learning to milk buffaloes to plastering walls with dung cakes, both the ladies have done it all for their upcoming film. Pataakha also stars Sunil Grover, Namit Das and other will hit screens on September 28.
