Mahie Gill stars in award winning filmmaker Trisha Ray’s next venture “Orphan Train” and the actress says working on the thriller was a memorable experience.
The 40-year-old actress, best known for her role of Paro in Anurag Kashyap’s critically acclaimed film “Dev D,” is playing the lead role in the independent American film.
“I loved the character that I portrayed and Trisha is the funniest and intelligent director, she is superb and I am sure we will work more together soon,” Mahie told PTI.
The “Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster” actress plays the role of an Environmental Protection Agent ‘Helen Prost,’ who is on a mission to investigate the involvement of radioactive isotopes in the deaths of children kidnapped by the local cartel.
“Orphan Train” is shot in a mix of three languages, Hindi, English and Spanish. Set in Mexico the film is based on a screenplay by Arizona-based writer Brian Stewart.
“This is probably the most challenging, fast-paced, hard-hitting, amazingly gritty screenplay that I’ve ever worked with - so all credit goes to screenwriter Brian (Stewart) for coming up with such an interesting and soulful storyline and for suggesting Mahie Gill, San (Banarje) as the lead villain Yatze,” Trisha said.
Produced by Boat Angel Family Films (Arizona)and Next Actor Studio (Texas), the movie is slated for release in 2016. The film also star San Banarje, Sean Vida, Gablu.
