With her talent and oomph, tolly actress Paoli Dam is no stranger in Bollywood. Having tantalized the audiences with her sizzling onscreen avatar in the much talked ‘Hate Story’; Paoli will now be seen in a film bearing a strong social message. Titled Halkaa, the movie promotes the concept of Swachh Bharat Abhiyan through a child, who constructs a toilet for himself.
Starring Ranvir Shorey, Kumud Mishra and Paoli herself, the story professes the firm determination of a child who disagrees to defecate in public and wants his own private toilet. Despite being a slum dweller, the little boy with strong resolve and perseverance, finally succeeds in winning the support of his mother.
Directed by ‘I am Kalam’ and ‘Kadvi Hawa’ famed Nila Madhab Panda the movie is all about the awareness regarding social and personal hygiene and open excretion.
Halkaa portrays a father opposition towards his son’s noble move and with the progress of the story we will see how a woman responses to her motherly instinct, sidelining her role as a wife and triumphs at the end.
Recalling her shooting experience to a media, all ecstatic Paoli shares how shooting in the slums of Delhi had really been tough for her but the supportive co-stars and crew had curtailed her stress a lot. ‘Ranvir used to always pull my leg regarding my blind love for fish’, the actor gleefully recollects. Interestingly,
the actor is one of the very few among the tolly brigade to have repeatedly bagged bolly projects.
Rumored to be a sequel to I Am Kalam, the music of the film has been helmed by the famous trio Shankar-Ehsan-Loy. Produced by Shiv Nadar Foundation the social drama will release on the 7th of September.
