Demi Moore plays a reformist in Indian film
Hollywood actor Demi Moore will be seen in an Indian film for the first time. She plays a reformist who helps rescue victims of human trafficking in Tabrez Noorani’s Love Soniya. It wasn’t difficult for Tabrez to get Demi Moore on board. “Demi has been involved in campaigns against human trafficking. She loved the script,” Tabrez says. Another American actor Mark Duplas, plays a wealthy man in the film who encounters the protagonist Sonia (Riya Sisodia) in LA. “He was a delight to work with. Both Demi and Mark shot in LA. We are done with the shooting. We have started editing.”
The producer says he couldn’t have asked for a better break as a director. “I waited 12 years to make this film. The subject is close to my heart. This is the film I’ve always wanted to direct.” But something or the other always stopped him. “In 2007, I was going to start the project when Slumdog Millionaire came up. When I started working on it again, I was asked to be line producer for Life Of Pi, then Eat Pray Love happened,” he says.
Finally Tabrez’s directorial dream has fructified. “To have a producer like David Womark back me in a film about sex trafficking in Hindi, is amazing,” he says.
