Ritika Singh, a sportswoman-turned-actress, bagged a national-award for her Tamil debut with Iruthi Suttru and carved her niche in the industry with her versatility across varied roles in Oh My Kadavule, Neevevaro, Guru, to name a few. Her next release is a crime thriller, InCar, directed by Harsha Warrdhan, slated to release in Telugu, Hindi, Tamil, Kannada and Malayalam simultaneously.

InCar is set to hit theatres on March 3. Anjum Qureshi, Sajid Quresh bankroleld the film under Inbox Pictures. Sandeep Goyat, Manish Jhanjholia and Gyan Prakash play other pivotal roles in the survival thriller. Ahead of its release, the film’s cast and crew came together for a press meet in Hyderabad. The team said InCar is a raw, intense film that promises to offer a unique viewing experience.


“Shooting for this film was a different experience and I went through a rollercoaster of emotions while bringing the character alive. I play a woman who fights for her life till the last minute. Unsurprisingly, the team was left teary eyed in many occasions during the shoot. I’m sure audiences across languages will resonate with this attempt as well,” Ritika shared.

“Unfortunately, we don’t bat an eyelid to many incidents where a woman’s dignity is compromised in newspapers. We discuss a few scenarios that lead to such ghastly incidents in the film. It’s a very pertinent issue and I knew that the film would offer a lot of scope to perform right during the narration. A major part of the film was shot in a car and due to continuity issues, I couldn’t take a headbath until the shoot was over. It’s a disturbing film that offers hope too,” she added.

Filmmaker Harsha Warrdhan stated the film was inspired by true incidents and said he wanted to a tell the backstory behind several gruesome crimes involving women in the country. “What drives the perpetrators to commit such crimes? How does their mind work? It’s not easy to find answers to this subject. Ritika responded to the challenges of her role well and wore the same costume for over 32 days. I’m confident the film will get her another national award.”

Mithun Gangopadhyay cranked the camera for the film edited by Manik Diwar. Sunil Rodrigues choreographed the action sequences.
