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
Set in a desert village, Parched is the story of four rural women who struggle with marital abuse and gender discrimination. Mai Re Mai tells the more joyous tale of how they make the best of their lives, as parched and arid as the land they inhabit
Radhika Apte, Tannishtha Chatterjee and Surveen Chawla, co-stars of critically acclaimed film Parched, caught up with each other for a special screening of the movie in Mumbai on September 20
