Shweta Tripathi, who has charmed everyone with her incredible acting in films like Masaan and Haramkhor, is all set to play an aspiring dancer in Gone Kesh, which is touted to be India’s first ever film based on Alopecia.
Alopecia develops when the immune system attacks the hair follicles and results in hair loss. The film deals with a very common disorder which is often neglected by people.
In the film, Masaan actress Shweta plays a middle-class girl who is an aspiring dancer and wants to realise her dream. But she is diagnosed with Alopecia. At the age of 18, she finds a temporary solution for Alopecia that steals her precious youth years, dwarfs her ambitions and wrecks her life.
The film is directed by debutante Qasim Khallow, the first ever Tibetan Muslim to work in Bollywood industry. He has been the cameraperson for Bollywood films like Fan, Dum Laga Ke Haisha, Kill Dil, Gunday, Aurangzeb, Ek Tha Tiger, Chaar Din Ki Chandni, Yamla Pagla Deewana and Chamku. He was also responsible for the entire BTS video for each of the films mentioned.
The film is set in the backdrop of a small town Siliguri in West Bengal and explores the different human emotions of pain, fear and ignorance in a light-hearted manner. After Haramkhor, it will be a delight to see Shweta performing in an intense character.
