Abundantia Entertainment’s supernatural thriller, ‘Chhorii’ released in November 2021 and managed to impress both the audience and critics alike. So much so that the makers took no time in announcing a sequel to the movie with Nushrratt Bharuccha returning to play the lead role as Sakshi. The film, based on the struggles of a pregnant couple moving into a new house posed with a paranormal presence, has the actress playing the titular role. Based on the viewership and response given to the first film, we can easily say that she managed to deliver a path-breaking performance with this role, which explains why the director was hell bent on casting only her as the leading lady in its official sequel.

He says,”Nushrratt Bharuchha is one of the most underrated actors of our industry. Films like ‘Chhorii’ and ‘Ajeeb Daastaans’ are testimonies to her talent. The sheer versatility which she possesses is extremely rare, which is one of the many reasons why I had decided to approach her for the supernatural thriller last year. I had full faith in her that she would be able to do justice to this role and that is exactly what happened. When I had the idea of continuing the story, I couldn’t imagine doing it with any other actor. For me, Nushrratt had imprinted the character of ‘Sakshi’ and only she could have taken her journey ahead on the big screen. I am super excited to work with the team again to present an even more exciting and thrilling chapter of Sakshi’s life in front of the world.”
