Demi Moore plays a re­formist in In­dian film

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Front Page - Sub­hash K Jha

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.
