Revealed: Rasika Dugal's look as Safia Manto in MANTO
Earlier we told you how perfectly actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui has nailed author Saadat Hassan Manto’s look in upcoming biopic directed by Nandita Das
And now we bring you the look of Safia, wife of Manto played by Rasika Dugal in this film. Safia had simple looks with round glasses and simple Indian attire. Nandita Das has in her earlier interviews expressed the lack of information and characterisation of the legendary writer's wife who played an important role in his life.
“I got very excited and happy when I first saw the look come together. All I could think was that I do look like her in the get up. I feel this look has been achieved through thorough research. We wanted to make Safia's character as real as possible to her real life look,” reveals Rasika.
The shooting of the film has already begun in Gujarat.
