Have a look at the second poster of Sheer Qorma:
In October 2019, the first poster of Sheer Qorma was released where Swara Bhasker and Divya Dutta were seen holding hands together with heads covered with a dupatta. Swara had mentioned: “So proud to play @farazarifansari ‘s gentle and shining Sitara in #sheerqorma the film.. A beautiful ode to love, love that binds us all. Notwithstanding gender, race, religion, generation or sexuality.. thank you Faraz! I’m so proud to have been part of this amazing project. Not to mention the honour and dream of sharing screen space with the legendary @azmishabana18 and iconic @divyadutta25 ! #loveislove #futterwackeningfilms”.
In an earlier interview, Faraz said that through Shabana Azmi’s character in Sheer Qorma, he wants to start a dialogue on parenthood and bring about a change. He said, “Shabana ji’s character is the mother we all deserve, the Mother India of the 21st century (sic).”
