The makers of Forensic revealed recently that they are featuring local artists in the movie. The Vikrant Massey-Radhika Apte starrer is being shot in Uttarakhand, and speaking about it, the team said they have hired local people from the state to appear in the movie. 

Director Vishal Furia opened up about the idea behind this move and how welcoming and accepting the artists were when the team approached them. 

As a filmmaker, he seems to want his movies to be true to the area of its setting. Also, the local artists playing vital roles in the movie actually turned out to be beneficial in many ways, added him. He also thinks he could highlight the local flavours in the movie.

He further said he was happy to make them a part and give them something back in return to their cooperation. “They bring to the film the ‘pahadi’ feel which has only enhanced it,” concluded the director.

Forensic was announced in July 2021, with the first look poster shared by Massey. 


The movie is a remake of the Malayalam hit of the same name, starring Tovino Thomas, Mamta Mohandas and Reba Monica John. 

The actor was excited and happy to collaborate with the team, which has Apte playing the female lead. Meanwhile, the actress has announced the wrap of her shoot for the movie, two days back. She took the news to her Instagram and shared a picture of herself with Massey.

The movie is backed by Deepak Mukut, Mansi Bagla and Varun Bagla under the banners of Soham Rockstar Entertainments Pvt. Ltd & Mini Films.
