Love Sonia deals with the subject of human trafficking and those who have gotten the chance of watch the film before it hits the screens would agree that it’s hard-hitting. Tabrez Noorani’s Love Sonia delves into the the dark streets of sex trade and you will get to know how women are treated in a brothel. Freida Pinto, who plays the role of a prostitute in the film, opened up about her role in an interview with DNA. 

 

Talking of her involvement with the film, she said, “Love Sonia has stayed with me for 10 years. Tabrez was a producer on Slumdog Millionaire (2008). While working on that film, he was writing this movie and told me that he was keen to direct it. Later, he asked me to read the script. Once I did, I was extremely disturbed by the subject. It was an important story and I wanted to be a part of it. I assured him that whether it was helping him cast actors or anything else, I would be actively involved. It took us a decade to get the right people as it’s difficult to find financiers for such films. When the project came together, he recalled how from 2008 onwards, I had read other actress’ parts and particularly enjoyed reading Rashmi’s lines. I loved the character’s complexity and craziness as well as the fact that she was unpredictable. He asked me if I’d like to portray her on screen. I told him my name was written all over it.” 

 

 

Freida added that the subject was such that made her wait till it was completely on track. She revealed that she has been great friends with Tarbez and she really liked the realistic portrayal of the characters. In fact, she also mentioned it was Mrunal Thakur's character that was intense and rest others had a blast while shooting for the film. Freida's character in the film will make you believe that those who are stuck in the dark lanes of the brothels have to accept the harsh fact of them being used in everyway and live with it all their lives. The actress gave a hard-hitting performance as Rashmi in the movie. Love Sonia is all set to hit the screens this Friday.
