In the first week of October, Sushmita Sen announced the next upcoming project Taali. In the movie, she will play the lead role of a transgender Gauri Sawant. After a month of the big announcement, the actor has wrapped the shoot of the biopic.
Sushmita Sen shared a video from the sets of Taali announcing it was a wrap. Dropping the video on her Instagram account the actress got emotional. Penning a gratitude note, she wrote, “AND….it’s a wrap for #Taali I couldn’t have been blessed with a better TEAM than this one!!! #gratitude #love #respect & yessssss lots of Taali!!!”
She tanked director Ravi Jadhav for being ‘one of the calmest and most humane directors’. Sen also congratulated other departments such as the DOP team, costume, Art, sound, and her personal team.
“To the most talented Cast & Crew…what a privilege to work alongside you all!!! Deeply Indebted to my community of Transgenders…who have showered me with such goodness & belonging through this process of sharing @shreegaurisawant story with the world …with a sense of great Empathy!!!,” she concluded.
A fan commented, “And we can’t wait to see you in a completely different role Sush! I’m really looking forward to Taali. I’m sure it’s going to be as SPECIAL as Aarya. Daring and passionate as an artist: THAT’S YOU!” Another wrote, “Finally something substantial coming up; looking forward to see you on screen again.”
Taali is based on the life of transgender activist Gauri and her rise in the community. Gauri is the founder of Sakhi Char Chowghi which helps transgender people and people with HIV/AIDS. She was made the goodwill ambassador of the Election Commission in Maharashtra. The film will also unfold Gauri’s bond with her adopted child Gayatri.
