Shabana Azmi plays the tree goddess in Netflixs Childrens Film
The last time she did a childrens film,ShabanaAzmiplayed a witch in Makdee.Now, in aNetflixfilm The Wishing Tree which releases onJune 9,ShabanaAzmiplays the tree goddess. This film directed bydebutantManikaSharmasweeps into the theme of ecological preservation. SaysShabana, I am doing a special appearance in this very special film. I play the tree goddess. Quite a long way from marrying a tree inAparnaSens Sati.Interestingly the tree in The Wishing Tree is given voice byAmitabhBachchan. So in a way the Big B andShabanaare coming together for the first time since MainAzaadHoon in 1989. This weekShabanaAzmiwill be seen playing the robust, devil-may-care sassy and fearlessDolonSen inAparnaSens fragilelyfeisty new English-language film Sonata.This is Shabanas fourth film withAparnaSen, and one that shes really proud of. I enjoyed playing my characterDolon Sen. Its a great part .wilful and funny with quicksilver mood, and shes uninhibited. I truly enjoyed the characters abandon. Dolonis a lovely part and it was very generous of Rina (AparnaSen) to give it to me rather than keep it for herself. Dolon is quicksilver in her changing moods, whimsical, childlike demanding and yet warm and loving. Hindi cinema meinkahaanmilte hainaise shades? Shabanaand her fans have a lot to look forward to in 2017. This year Ive five releases and all the parts very different from one another.
