Swara Bhasker is all set to don the hat of an investigative officer in her upcoming movie Mimamsa.

This is the second time that the actress will be seen in a police uniform after her Eros Now web-series Flesh (2020).

Directed by Gagan Puri, the film is a murder mystery that also stars Brijendra Kala. It was shot last year after  COVID-19 restrictions were lifted.

Sharing her experience shooting for the film, Bhasker told the compact newspaper Mid-Day, “The experience of shooting for the movie was one of a kind as it kept me emotionally invested throughout the stint. This was the first film I shot for after the lockdown last year; that makes the project special. It helped me have a sense of gratitude for the work I do (sic).” 

Mimamsa is Puri’s third directorial venture after The Past (2018), a horror film, and the light-hearted drama Doordarshan (2020).

The filmmaker told the publication, “We have tried to keep a sense of mystery in the movie, and with talented actors like Swara and Brijendra on board, it only adds to the buzz.”
