“I am really elated to be a part of this film and an ensemble of such wonderful actors. Konkona’s script, the rehearsal process and her approach to entering the world of the film has all been a gift and filled me with a renewed sense of vigour. I am excited for her and all of us who are a part of this.”

Tillotama said she walked into rehearsals for “A Death In The Gunj” right after shooting a cameo for her “Qissa” director Anup Singh’s “The Song of Scorpions”, which stars Irrfan Khan and Iranian actress Golshifteh Farahani.

“The joy has been endless,” said Tillotama, who famously essayed Alice in “Monsoon Weddings”, and got married just last year.

“A Death in the Gunj” has been described as a “coming of age” story that centres around Shutu and his conflicted ideas of masculinity. He finds himself navigating the blurred lines of what is accepted in society and questions his own space within the world.

Asked more about the film, Tillotama said: “It’s best Konkona herself shares more about the film.”
