Bollywood actress Neha Dhupia, mostly known for her acting in independent films and supporting roles is now going to be seen in Disney+’s suspense thriller A Thursday. She will be seen playing a pregnant police officer in the upcoming film. She revealed her inspiration behind choosing this particular character in the thriller. The movie begins with a joyful backdrop of a kindergarten amidst giggles and innocent glee, when Naina Jaiswal (Yami Gautam Dhar), the teacher, suddenly takes her students hostage.
Neha Dhupia, who plays the role of ACP Catherine Alvarez, shared: “I think at that point while I was shooting, right before that I was watching this show called ‘Hit and Run’, starring Lior Raz, and there’s a character called Tali, who’s pregnant and you know, after the first two scenes, you start living her life, like you live all the other characters, as well.”
“The show was a hit and there was a huge relatability for me as far as that character was concerned. We didn’t go over the top with the pregnancy. Because you are pregnant, and some days, you work harder than the others, but the reference point was just as powerful because you know, I have been pregnant before.”
Neha Dhupia added: “This is my second time and you don’t change as a person. It is a little tough. It is uncomfortable. It’s beautiful. What you’re going through.” “But I always kept the reference point more towards being the cop and less towards my physicality changing because in any case, my physicality is going to be so natural to being pregnant because I generally was, I didn’t have to work too much towards that.”
