The choice to include Shillong-based performer Andrea Tariang among the lead cast in the film Pink was an intentional one, says movie producer Shoojit Sircar, who needed to create an impression against the separation confronted by individuals from Northeast India in different parts of the nation.
He said without a character from the district, the cast involving Amitabh Bachchan and Taapsee Pannu would have been fragmented.
Shoojit, who co-created the film with Ronnie Lahiri, said: "Ronnie is from Shillong. I experienced childhood in Delhi for a large portion of my life and have a considerable measure of companions from upper east India and I knew how men or ladies from Northeast are looked upon."
"When we needed to do the film around three working ladies, Ronnie and I proposed to the executive that without a northeastern character the cast would not be finished. We felt that is a major explanation we needed to make, without a doubt, and Pink was the best stage we got," he included.
Andrea plays one of three young ladies who face ambush charges subsequent to being attacked by a gathering of men in the Aniruddha Roy Chowdhury-coordinated Pink. Kirti Kulhari additionally co-stars.
"Andrea is a performer from Shillong and she has made a splendid showing with regards to," Shoojit said.
