Actress Pallavi Sharda who was last seen with Bollywood heartthrob Ranbir Kapoor in ‘Besharam’, will once again be seen on big screen. This time around she will don the role of a Tamasha Dancer. Seems like she is all set to show her dancing skills in her next project ‘Bambai Fairytale’, a biopic on popular Maharashtrian scientist Shivkar Bapuji Talpade.
As per sources, the 26-year-old Indo-Australian actress is playing a tamasha dancer from the 1890s in the film. “I am a trained classical dancer and have performed extensively all over the world in many dance forms.
The dance in ‘Bambai Fairytale’ is one of the folk traditions of Maharashtra and used to be a major part of the society’s culture in 1890. “It was difficult to find out the mannerism of the female dancers and the kind of audience during that era. I have tried to keep it as earthy and real as possible.”
Directed by debut filmmaker Vibhu Puri, the film narrates the journey of the legendary scientist who constructed and flew India’s first unmanned airplane in 1895. ‘Vicky Donor’ star Ayushmann Khurrana is playing Bapuji Talpade in the period film.
