After Pink, set in urban India and discussing the tough life of working women, director Leela Yadav brings Parched, a tale set in rural Kutch.
"Once I got a call and they said they're doing this film in Bollywood and 'I want you to have a meeting with them. But would you be okay sleeping with that person?' And I laughed. I said you're so funny, you're very funny and I said no I'm not. Ask him to go to hell," said Radhika Apte
Actor Adil Hussain tweeted the news on Friday and also shared a copy of the letter from Margaret Herrick Library of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences
Parched is less lyrical than other desert sagas in the past. More brutal. Yet beautiful. The women seem to take to the patriarchal clobbering with a great deal of reluctance and a whole lot of sisterly camaraderie
