Bollywood actress Ihana Dhillon has been roped in to play a rape victim in Ullu App’s upcoming web-series ‘Kasak’. We heard, Kasak’ is the story of a girl, who was violently attacked and raped because of which she was in a semi-comatose for the rest of her life.
We spoke to Ihana about her character in the series, ‘Hate Story 4’ actress says, “I am playing Sheetal, who is a nurse by profession. Her life took a tragic tragic turn after she was raped in the hospital, where she worked. She had spent the next four decades in a vegetative state after surviving a brutal sexual assault. It’s a story of a woman who has been brutally raped and manhandled and justice was always awaited.” She further clarifies that she doesn’t play Aruna Ramachandra Shanbaug but the story is somewhat inspired by it but it is not at all a biopic of sorts.
It terrifies Ihana to think that someone as pure as a professional as a nurse who literally gives life to people was so badly done. She says “I was petrified to know of this and it troubled me to think what someone like her would have gone through and then I decided this is a story which needed to be told and hence I took the project.”
