Swara Bhasker who is always known to have her support for the feminism will now feature in a movie starring only women. She along with Surekha Sikri, Divya Dutt, Kalyanee Mulay, Elena Roxana, Maria Fernandes and Jitin Gulati will star in a movie titled as Sheer Khurma.


Helmed by Faraz Arif Ansari, the movie will celebrate the courage of queer women and showcase their stories.


"Sheer Khurma is a labour of love. After Sisak's success, it took me a lot of time to find the soul for my next film. It was ironic, in a way, we bagged 59 international awards for Sisak so I was hoping the journey to make my next film would be easier. But making a queer film in India continues to be a challenge. Especially when the film doesn't have any male protagonists but females. Production houses wanted me to make a queer film with male protagonists because masculinity is the flavour of the day, apparently. I was adamant on telling a story about courageous queer women of colour - the most ignored set, in most cinema across the world."


Faraz earlied directed a film named Sisak- India's First Silent LGBTQ love story which bagged 59 International awards.


The film will be shot in Mumbai and will go on floors this month.
