Audition for Irrfan’s on-screen daughter took long time
Chaudhary said in a statement: “This character of Pia is very crucial in the movie. We wanted that innocence in face, sweetness in the voice, confidence and a good actor.”
“The auditions went on for a long time as we wanted to be sure who our Pia is and we just could not take chance or a random decision. It took us a long time auditioning many kids across India and workshops to come to a conclusion that Dishita will be our Pia. She is a brilliant artiste and I am sure everyone will fall in love with her.”
The film was shot in slum areas, so it got difficult for her to attend classes regularly.
“But fortunately, school teachers helped her with notes and shared YouTube links related to the topics taught in the class,” said Mamta.
“Hindi Medium” also stars Pakistani actress Saba Qamar.
