Fatima Sana Sheikh To Star In Hindi Remake of Aruvi



2021 seems to be  a significant  year for female  heroes in Hindi cinema .  This Women’s Day audiences  will see two  important  OTT products  Netflix’s  Bombay Begums and  Alt-Balajee’s The Married Women  with female  heroes at  their helm. Earlier this year  we saw  women navigate  feature films like Tribhanga and later this year comes Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s  Gangubai Kathiawadi  where Alia Bhat plays leading woman.

Now  comes  news that Applause  Entertainment  in collaboration with  Faith Films  is  all set to remake the  2017 quirky, disturbing, devilishly  ironic Tamil  film Aruvi about a fey  girl from the  middleclass and  her startling experiences from childhood to adolescence to  adulthood.

Fatima Sana Sheikh who  takes up the  role from Aditi  Balan in the original  says  she  is thrilled to be doing this  challenging  role. “I am so thrilled to do the remake of Aruvi and really looking forward to dive deep into the skin of the character. I am really glad that Applause Entertainment and Faith Films have come together with E Niwas to make this great content and I am really excited to embark on this journey”

Adds Sameer Nair, CEO  of Applause Entertainment, “Equally funny and ferocious, Aruvi is a provocative, feminist social satire that stunned us when we first saw it. We were drawn in by its unconventional narrative, deftly balancing its black comedy leanings, with the beats of a tautly executed thriller. We’re excited to collaborate with Faith Films, E Niwas and Fatima Sana Shaikh in the retelling of this audacious film for a national audience”
