Chronicle Reporter, Bhopal
The film Laapata Ladies, directed by Kiran Rao and made under the banner of Aamir Khan Productions, will be released in theaters on March 1. In this film, Bhopal artiste Kanupriya Rishimum will be seen acting with actor Ravi Kishan. In this, Kanupriya has increased her weight by 10 kg to appear natural for her role.
It is to mention that Kanupriya Rishimum of Bhopal is also an excellent scriptwriter, artist and voice artist, who has been working in Mumbai for the last 8 years. She is also trying to take her Bundeli cinema to the national level. Recently, the film Lapata Ladies, which is releasing on March 1, is trending as well as being discussed a lot these days. The most special thing about the film is that the dialogues and songs are in regional languages and are being appreciated in every region of India. Giving information about the Lapata Ladies, Kanupriya said that in the trailer you will see a man who brings his bride to the village by train after marriage. When the bride removes her veil and appears at the door, the groom and his family are stunned. Everyone sees that instead of their daughter-in-law, some other woman is standing in front of them. This is where all the hustle and bustle begins. Kanupriya says that…like every other project, this film has also gone through many ups and downs since its inception. The film has been shot with great enthusiasm, a lot of love and hard work. Kanupriya says that this was not just a project for her but it was like living a dream. Actor Kanupriya told an interesting story related to her career and a scene from the film. She informs that she has a scene in the film, in which she has to scare the hero by cutting the kernel with a fork and not by speaking… due to which my character became powerful. I will always remember this.
Regarding the selection in the audition, she told that I had auditioned for this film in which I was asked to gain 8 to 10 kg of weight to play the character. To look rough on the screen, I had to keep myself without makeup for several months. I had to play the character of a female wrestler of the 90s who does not talk much but directly intimidates without speaking… which was quite challenging.
