The bubbly and absolutely enthralling actress Shweta Tripathi was last seen in critically acclaimed film ‘Haramkhor’ (2015) opposite Nawazuddin Siddiqui and is now all set to start to collaborate an another independent film titled ‘The Illegal’.
The actress is slowly making her mark internationally with her next film ‘Zoo’, India’s first feature to be shot on the iPhone being selected for Busan International Film Festival, now she’s the lead in this new Hollywood indie film. In the film Tripathi will be seen with actor Suraj Sharma who was last seen in ‘Phillauri’ (2017) and made his much talked about debut with ‘Life of Pi’ (2012).
The film is a gritty realistic story about the social underclass; illegal immigrants working in a restaurant in Los Angeles, USA. Sharma plays the illegal immigrant in the film whereas Tripathi plays Mahi, Sharma’s sister who had always encouraged him to trust himself, follow his heart and dreams. A very self assured girl who during testing times, becomes the back bone of the family. Tripathi has impressed us all with her debut film ‘Masaan’ (2015). Tripathi from the start of her career has been associated with great films with incredible stories. Even ‘Zoo’ falls under the same category and now comes ‘The Illegal’.
When asked Tripathi, she said “I love working with people from different parts of the world. And the team of a project really excites me. And that’s exactly how the it was at The Illegal.”
