Filmmaker Mani Ratnam’s wife Suhasini, who has acted in over 50 films in the South, is all set to make her Bollywood debut. The actress will be seen opposite Naseeruddin Shah in Anu Menon’s ‘Waiting’, which will have a world premiere at the Dubai Film Festival on Decemebr 11.
Says Anu Menon, “Suhasini was shocked when I offered her the role of Naseer's wife. She said that the only time she had ever spoken in Hindi was with a Bihari cook.” After Suhasini was convinced, they had to work on her accent. “She used to take the script home and write all the Hindi lines in Tamil, learn them by rote and come to the sets word perfect,” adds Anu.
‘Waiting’ also features Kalki Koechlin, Rajat Kapoor and Arjun Mathur.
