Shabana Azmi adorning a Parsi character

Shabana Azmi will be seen adorning a Parsi character after almost three decades, in her upcoming project.

This is touted to be the veteran actress’ first short movie after almost a decade. She also featured in ‘Waterborne’ around 13 years ago which was a short film.

Talking about her take on short films, the actress says, “Its never short films verses Feature films. Short films are a parallel medium to put forward your stories out there in a short time frame and that’s quite a challenge. But at the same time, it’s a great medium to present different stories to the audience”.

Her upcoming movie is a slice -of-life film that revolves around the story of a day in her life. Shabana Azmi is playing the character of Parsi widow Parvin, who is 60 years old and is trying to cope up with life.

Her look in the film is quite different than her usual self. There was a Parsi lady on the sets, and Shabana modelled her on herself effortlessly. She shopped for her entire look personally to ace the Parsi look. She has earlier played a Parsi character in ‘Pestonjee’, which had released in 1988.
