Saiyami Kher to play specially-abled sportsperson in Ghoomer, gutsy firefighter in Agni
Saiyami will share screen space with Abhishek Bachchan in R Balki’s Ghoomer
Actor Saiyami Kher, who was most recently in the series Faadu, is set to portray a specially-abled cricket prodigy in R Balki’s upcoming film Ghoomer. She will also be playing the firefighter role in the action-drama Agni, which also stars Pratik Gandhi.
Talking about her roles, Saiyami said: "I believe all heroes don't wear capes, and there are many unsung heroes. I am looking forward to 2023 because I get to play a few such characters."
She further mentioned how these characters have been learning for her as an actor: "A sportsperson, who, even after losing a hand, didn't lose her spirit or a lady firefighter, who is hardly spoken about: these characters don't just give one perspective on life as an actor but also as a human being."
Ghoomer also has Abhishek Bachchan, Shabana Azmi and Angad Bedi in pivotal roles. The story is co-written by Balki, along with Rahul Sengupta and Rishi Virmani. It is inspired by the story of Karoly Takacs, the late Hungarian right-hand shooter who won two Olympic gold medals with his left hand after his other hand was seriously injured.
