Anurag Kashyap bonds with Sobhita..

By HT

Mumbai, July 9 -- Former beauty queen Sobhita Dhulipala made an unconventional, but credible debut with Anurag Kashyap's latest release, which also starred Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Vicky Kaushal.

Anurag, who has written extensively over the years, discovered Sobhita's passion for writing while working with her on the project.

The director was happy to meet someone who shared his love for poetry. "I realised that Sobhita writes poetry while we were having a conversation. I wasn't surprised because a lot of people claim to write poetry. But when I read a piece that was written by her, I realised that it had a distinct voice," he says, adding, "It was guttural, and had a whole lot of gravity. It felt like it came from some deep-seated wound that she had come to relish."

Sobhita's work has changed Anurag's perception of her, he admits. "I have started to see her differently. The more I got to know her while we were shooting for the film, the more I realised that she wasn't like the other models I have met. She is intelligent. She has a mind of her own, and she has the hunger to express herself through acting," says Anurag.
