Filmmaker Manish Gupta, the man who is incharge of portraying Aarushi murder case on silver screen with his ‘Rahasya’ has reportedly signed child artist Sakshi Sem as Aarushi in the film.
Asked about her selection, Sakshi commented - “Manish saw me near Mithibhai College and told me that he was planning a film on Aarushi and wanted me to play the lead role. I agreed to do the film without even looking at the script.”
Sakshi had made her B-town debut as a child artiste with ‘Darna Zaroori Hai’, which was produced by Ram Gopal Varma. She also has to her credit a role in Ajay Devgn’s ‘Raju Chacha’.
‘Rahasya’ Director, Manish Gupta revealed - "Sakshi was brilliant even as a nine-year-old when I directed her in Darna Zaroori Hai. In Rahasya I explore the issues that teenage girls face in an urban environment like sex, peer pressure and strained relationships with parents."
There are reports that Tisca Chopra and Aashish Vidyarthi would be paying the role of the embattled parents in the film.
