Tannishtha Chatterjee's 'UnIndian' opposite former Australian fast bowler Brett Lee is yet to hit the big screens but the actress has already bagged a new film.
She will be seen playing India's first practicing lady doctor, Rukhmabai on the silver screens. The film will be directed by Ananth Mahadevan and will trace the journey of Rukhmabai, who not only studied medicine in the UK and practised in India, but also fought in court against the then prevailing social system.
Reportedly Tannishtha underwent a drastic makeover in terms of her look and also worked on the nuances of her character as she ages from 20 to 90 in the movie. She also worked on her diction as she had to speak Marathi and Gujarati too, besides Hindi and English.
The actress was quoted saying to a leading daily, “Since it's a period film, I had to undergo a special course to get the pronunciation correct. I was born in Pune, but I lived in Japan, Australia, England, Kenya and then Delhi. So, I had to work on my Marathi too."
Sounds pretty interesting!
