Divya Dutta and Swara Bhasker shine in the trailer of Sheer Qorma
| Five days post the release of Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan, we see the trailer of another film titled Sheer Qorma that also deals with the subject of homosexuality and tackling homophobia. Post the verdict of Section 377, we’ve seen Bollywood churn out a lot more content to increase awareness regarding the same amongst the common folk and this is another addition to the list.
Sheer Qorma is directed by Faraz Arif Ansari and features Swara Bhasker and Divya Dutta playing a homosexual couple. Shabana Azmi stars as Divya’s mother in the film who refuses to accept her daughter’s choices and treats her relationship as a suffering for her ‘sins’. Director Faraz Arif Ansari spoke about his cast before the release of the trailer. He said, “Shabana ji’s character is the mother we all deserve, the Mother India of the 21st century. Divya and Swara are two celebrated names in the industry and strong allies of the LGBTQIA+ community. It was an easy decision to approach them. In fact, when I started writing the film, I had Divya in my mind, and already saw her playing this role.”
