Deepti Naval's upcoming film 'Do Paise Ki Dhoop Char Aane Ki Baarish' is inspired by actual incidents

Deepti Naval's Do Paise Ki Dhoop Char Aane Ki Baarish, a Manisha Koirala-starrer, is inspired by a real story.

Says a source close to the director, "Manya plays a street walker and was excited to hear that her character had been inspired by a real sex worker whose story Deepti had heard through a friend. Koirala plays a sex worker who finds it difficult to survive."

The challenge was to make the actress look ordinary. "Deepti wanted a sari-clad sex worker and not a mini-skirt clad one someone who is a bit neglected.

She wears dark red lipstick, keeps her hair open and wears dark and bright colours like red, maroon and purple. She had to look like a mother and struggler."
