Meet #SherniOnPrime, June 2021. @primevideoin @amitvmasurkar @tseriesfilms @tseries.official @abundantiaent @ivikramix @shikhaarif.sharma @aastha_tiku #BhushanKumar.”
Speaking about her character in Sherni, Vidya Balani said, “Ever since I first heard the story of Sherni, I found the world fascinating and so far removed from my own. Also, the character I play, Vidya is a woman of few words but many dimensions. The film deals with a sensitive topic that touches upon respect, mutual understanding, and co-existence, not just between man-animal, but between humans as well. It gives me immense joy to bring this unique character and story to the global audience through Amazon Prime Video and hope to engage them in unexpected ways.” The film has also a powerful ensemble cast comprising versatile artists such as Sharad Saxena, Mukul Chaddha, Vijay Raaz, Ila Arun, Brijendra Kala and Neeraj Kabi.
