Taali creators Arjun and Kartk share why they cast Sushmita Sen in the titular role
While exclusively talking to BollywoodLife, the creators Arjun Singgh Baran and Kartk D Nishandar reveal, “When we were writing the story of Taali with our writer Kshitij Patwardhan. We had this prominent thought in our head that this is essentially a story of a mother.” Shreegauri is the first transgender who adopted a child and it is the whole journey of Shreegauri that they are narrating shares Arjun. Taali will cover Shreegauri’s journey from being a 12-year-old till she is 40. And in the middle of it all, she is also a mother. So, this role cannot be played by a male actor.

Arjun adds, “Wo jo emotional hai maa ka, jo pyaar hai, hav-bhaav hai jo ek aurat mein dikhayi deta hai, wo ek male actor mein nahi dikhega. Wo ekdum caricaturish ho jayega, which we have already seen in films and TV shows.” He shares that Sushmita Sen was the only name on top when they were writing the story for the web series. They both have more similarities than one, Sushmita is beautiful and well-spoken and whenever she talks everyone stops to listen and the same is the case with Shreegauri Sawant. Arjun gushes about Shreegauri saying, “Make her sit anywhere in front of anyone, even in front of me, whenever she starts talking people listen.” They were talking to about 3 to 4 people including Sushmita but the Aarya actress was the one to give a prompt response.

Why cast Sushmita in the titular role of Shreegauri Sawant in Taali?
Kartk D Nishandar elaborates that it is the story of unsung heroes. And though Gauri is extremely well-spoken, they want to tell this story to the whole world. So bringing in someone like the Miss Universe playing the role of a transgender would enable them to reach far and wide. “It has to go across Bombay,” he tells us. Taali has gotten a fabulous response and all episodes of the web series are dropping on JioCinema on 15th August.
