MUMBAI: National Award winning director Sanjoy Nag (Memories of March) has pulled a coup of sorts by casting two National Award winning actresses Revathy and Rituparna Sengupta in his next directorial venture titled Good Morning Sunshine.

The film also features Tejaswani Kolhapuri and Shweta Tripathi (Masaan). The film will be shot in Mumbai, Benaras, Lucknow and Mirzapur.  The unit recently completed a two days schedule in Mumbai. 

The film revolves around Rai (Rituparna Sengupta), an aspiring director, pulls off a casting coup of sorts when yesteryear diva Radha (Revathy) finally gives her consent to play the lead in her debut feature film. Rai in her earlier avatar as a film critic of a TV channel, had trashed Radha’s latest at the box office, resulting in an unpleasant manifestation of Radha’s ego, creating a vitiated atmosphere not to mention the frayed tempers. 

Lack of access to hygienic sanitation and toilet facilities, especially for women in India, cutting across the socio-economic strata forms the thread, which ties the story of 'Sunshine', the film being conceived. The film delves into the lives of diverse and interesting characters such as Leelavati (Shweta Tripathi), a young runaway bride; Jamini (Tejaswini Kolhapure) battling amnesia post her alleged rape; Anjali losing her only daughter Sonali while defecating in the open, and others around them who form a silent majority in India. 

Thereafter, the film is an exploration of how Radha’s life intertwines with that of Rai, Leelavati, Jamini and Anjali as they set about completing their film, till an accident throws the film out of gear.
