Both the trailers of Chhorii have dropped and they promise to be quite the spine-chilling watch as it gears for a 26th November release on Prime Video.
An official adaptation of Vishal Furia’s original Marathi film Lapachhapi, the film revolves around a fleeing couple who realise that their place of refuge is threatened by sinister paranormal forces. Playing the lead as a heavily pregnant housewife Sakshi is Nushrratt Bharuccha with the support of actors like Mita Vashisht.
To get into the skin of the role, Bharuccha also wore a bodysuit 20-25 days prior to shoot for almost all aspects of her daily life routine. She describes:
“I had to put myself in it to be able to self-learn everything that’s related to pregnancy, and then bring them on set with a more realistic facet that the masses can connect to. Though it wasn’t a prop for me a part of me, I became so used to it that when the shooting began, I felt more comfortable while resting in between the rehearsals in the bodysuit.”
Furia also adds: “With Chhorii our aim is to take this scary story to a wide cross-section of the movie-watchers and allow fans of the genre to experience horror like never before. I have thoroughly enjoyed my collaboration with Abundantia Entertainment, Crypt TV and T-Series and am glad to have partnered with a streaming service like Prime Video for this film, as it allows us to reach viewers across the globe.”
