Sunny Leone has wrapped up shooting for her multilingual movie titled Shero. The psychological thriller, helmed by Malayalam director Sreejith Vijayan, is made simultaneously in five languages including Tamil, Malayalam, Kannada, Hindi and Telugu.
The actress took to her social media page on Thursday to announce the news, with a picture of herself and the director. “It's a wrap for #Shero!!! Loved shooting with this amazing team,” she wrote in her caption.
The film also marks Sunny’s first lead role in Malayalam. Since action is a necessary element of the film, she was trained and equipped to do the stunts by herself. The actress expressed her happiness and excitement in working for the film. She told IANS that the film made her push harder, and she was completely consumed by it in terms of action performances and learning the language.
“We shot in such picturesque locales of Kerala and it is by far one of the most interesting films I have ever done in my life,” the actress added.
Speaking about Sunny’s character, director Sreejith had earlier told ETimes that she appears in the role of Sarah Mike, who is a US-born woman who has her roots in India. He had also added that unlike revolving around a crime, his thriller delves deep into the psychology of the character.
He had also spoken about the actress’ commitment towards working for the role which includes many action scenes. “After a certain point, the film only has action sequences. Those are not fighting sequences, but adventurous portions. Sunny herself drove the car for all the chase sequences,” he said.
The movie was shot in Munnar and other parts of Kerala. Even though the shooting was delayed due to the second wave of the pandemic, the cast and crew got back to the set on July 17 for its final schedule.
