Ratna Pathak Shah, best known for her iconic character Maya Sarabhai in the Indian sitcom ‘Sarabhai vs Sarabhai,’ is set to make her Gujarati film debut with ‘Kutch Express.’ The actress referred to the film as a “unusual opportunity.”
Manasi Parekh, Darsheel Safary from ‘Taare Zameen Par,’ and Dharmendra Gohil also star in the film, whose poster was recently released.
Talking about the movie, Ratna Pathak Shah said: “I’ve been looking forward to doing a Gujarati film for a long time, but couldn’t find anything really interesting. Then came this film with a good script and a good team and to be shot in Kutch, so this was irresistible.”
She also mentioned that the reason she chose the film is because it has a point to make: “It also happened to be a film that had a point to make and was not sentimental or regressive. An unusual opportunity.”
The film is scheduled for release on January 6, 2023.
