Sai Dhanshika: Playing a Visually Challenged role was Surreal



Sai Dhanshika’s choice of films have been great of late. Her bold act in Kabali recently fetched her the Best Supporting Actor (Female) at the 64th Jio Filmfare Awards (South). Now, Dhanshika is now part of Tamil-Malayalam bilingual film Solo which features Malayalam star Dulquer Salmaan in the lead role. The actress plays the role of a visually challenged dancer in the film and says it was very tough for her to play that role.

The excited actress says, “I had a great time shooting with Bejoy. It was quite a learning experience. Dulquer and I were shooting for our portions simultaneously in both the languages. Since I am not familiar with Malayalam, Dulquer helped me a lot with the lines. Subathra, who had worked with us in Kabali, coached me to play the visually challenged girl. I was taught how a visually challenged person would talk, walk and feel the things around her. I even climbed up the stairs blindfolded to get the body language right. It was such a surreal experience.”

We also hear that there is a lovely song in the film featuring Sai Dhanshika in her dance moves. “The dance rehearsals happened much before, and I picked up the freestyle, contemporary moves pretty quickly. I finished shooting for the film in Kochi, and am looking forward to its release,” she says.
