Reports says Divya Dutta’s Amma role in Babumoshai Bandookbaaz. She will be playing the prime antagonist in the film. The role is inspired by former Tamil Nadu Chief Minister, late Jayalalithaa.
Report says, “Divya has been reading a lot to ensure she delivers what her character demands. She has been watching videos of Jayalalithaa to understand her body language and traits. Getting her onscreen look right took a while. The makers wanted her mannerisms to be exactly like Jayalalithaa’s, a strong woman who was loved by the people.”
Director Kushan Nandy said aboutDutta’s role, “Our film is fictional. So, the similarities [between Dutta’s character and Jayalalithaa] begin and end with the fact that she plays a female politician, who is a go-getter. Divya is a fine actor. She took pains and time to delve into factual research for her role. I feel it will be her finest performance as an actor till date, because in real life, she is far from the character she will play on screen.”
