We have portrayed leucoderma patients normally: Geetanjali Thapa

The actor opens up about her role in Onir's Kuch Bheege Alfaaz, where she plays a girl with the skin disease

Published: 16th February 2018

Geetanjali Thapa essays the role of a young meme creator affected by leucoderma in Onir's latest directorial Kuch Bheege Alfaaz. She says that most people don't understand that it is a non-communicable skin disease.

"In the film, my character (Archana Pradhan) just happens to have leucoderma. But it's not like 'this poor thing has it'. The film is just about this girl who is like you and me. She is a meme artist, she talks her mind, is a vivacious woman and happens to have leucoderma. And yes, she does have insecurities about it," says Geetanjali.
"Leucoderma is not a communicable disease, but sadly so many people think otherwise which is why here in the film, my character is that of a normal girl. Everyone interacts with her, she has friends, she hugs, kisses, and does whatever she wants to. We have shown that it's normal," she adds.

The actor concludes saying Kuch Bheega Alfaaz is "a modern-day love story in the age of social media of two characters -- RJ Alfaaz (Zain Khan Durrani) and Archana."
