Actor Pallak Lalwani will make her Bollywood debut in Hansal Mehta's Faraaz. Pallak started her acting career with the Telugu film Abbayitho Ammayi (2016). She also appeared in the Tamil action comedy Kuppathu Raja (2019).
In Faraaz, Pallak essays one of the leads alongside Zahan Kapoor and Aditya Rawal. The film is based on the Holey Artisan cafe attack in Dhaka in 2016.
"I have been auditioning for a while with MCC (Mukesh Chhabra Casting)," Pallak shares on how she landed the film. "I was actually travelling when I got a call for this project and I had to shoot my audition clip outdoors with my friends who gave me cues and helped me record a self-test. Within a week's time I got a call and was locked in for the part."
On working with Hansal Mehta, Pallak adds, "It was an amazing experience working with Hansal Sir, and I'm grateful to have commenced my journey in this industry with him. I absolutely loved being on sets, it felt like home. Hansal Sir gave us all a bit of freedom to explore our characters in our own unique manner. Before we were on sets, we had gruelling workshops and sessions that went on for months. Working on the project has been an amazing and fruitful learning experience for me and I sincerely hope I'm a part of many other projects with him in the future."
Pallak's upcoming southern Indian releases are Sinam with Arun Vijay, and Partner with Aadhi Pinisetty and Hansika Motwani. Both the films will release this year.
