In “The Freelancer,” Kashmira Bardeshi Is Asked Not To Read Ticket To Syria
New Delhi, August 27: Actress Kashmira Pardeshi decoded her workout to prepare her intensely layered character, Alia in the sizzling thriller ‘The Freelancer’, and shared how she slipped into her character’s skin.
Talking about preparing for her role as Aliya, Kashmira said, “So, the script is based on the book ‘Ticket to Syria’. But I read the book later as I was asked not to read the book. Even I personally think so.” A well-written script will contain everything an actor needs.”
“But to prepare for the character, I watched a lot of documentaries that were made about families who faced this. About girls who voluntarily fled to Syria, or who were kidnapped and taken there. I read about Sushmita Banerjee, Kapuliwala’s wife and she referenced a lot of Malala’s stories. Which was really very inspiring.”
The series is directed by Bhav Doula, produced by Friday Storytellers, with Neeraj Pandey as the creator and director.
The book attempts to share the story of the Islamic State’s malign operations, and how the terrorist group perfected a cross-country operation that turned thousands into a corrupt cause.
The Freelancer, directed by Mohit Raina, is about an extraction mission where a girl is trapped in a hostile environment of war-torn Syria, and her escape from the realm of death.
It also stars veteran actor Anupam Kher, along with Sushant Singh, John Kokken, Gauri Balaji, Navneet Malik, Manjiri Phadnis, Sarah Jane Dias and more.
It will be broadcast September 1 on Disney + Hotstar.
