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

Published: 24th February 2023

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.

Meanwhile, Agni, which is directed by Raees helmer Rahul Dholakia, recently wrapped up its shoot
