Yami Gautam And Neha Dhupia On Their Characters In ‘A Thursday Movie’
Neha Dhupia is playing the character of a pregnant cop ACP Catherine Alvarez and Dimple Kapadia is the prime minister. Neha spoke about her character in the movie, “When I first read the script, I immediately wanted to be a part of A Thursday. My role as a pregnant police officer is very unique as I am dealing with a hostage situation wherein children are involved and my character too will soon become a mother.”
“I could relate to the character as I too have kids. The movie’s pace will keep viewers engaged to the last minute. The entire team has worked really hard and put together a thriller which will entertain one and all!” She added.
Fans speculate that A Thursday is a sequel to the critically acclaimed 2008 film A Wednesday, but there is no official statement on it. Talking about her role, Yami said, “I have never ever played such a distinct character like Naina. She projects so many diverse emotions. I have really put in a lot of effort to portray her in different shades.”
Yami continued, “She is a teacher, who always looks after the children and she has taken them hostage, transforming her from a protector to a threat. That situation itself is so tense with multiple layers to it. A Thursday is an absolute roller coaster ride and I totally loved being a part of it!”
