The daughter television star Shweta Tiwari, she is only 17 years old and has already bagged her first Bollywood film. She will debut alongside ‘Taare Zameen Par’ actor Darsheel Safary.  Palak has become the talk of the town ever since the news of her big screen debut has come out. Her Instagram pictures are proof that she is Bollywood ready.

The film is a teen comedy

The movie, which will hit the screens in 2018 is a teen comedy, titled ‘Quickie’. The story follows two teenage strangers who decide to have a one-night stand. Besides, the movie will also feature Bhavin Bhanushali, Prabhjyot Singh, and  Vinny Miranda, among others. Says writer and director Pradip Atluri, “Most of our so called teenage films are played by 20 to 30 plus-year-old actors. The idea was to make a teenage film with real teenagers.” The film will go on floors end of 2017.

Says Palak, “I’m really excited for this film. This is my first film and there is a lot of pressure that comes along with it. Hope it will be a great journey like I expected it to be and people will appreciate this film. I really expect this film to do well because personally, I love the story. I have a great time working with Darsheel. Darsheel is extremely experienced. He is a great actor. He is also a great dancer so it was really fun working with him. I am really excited to start shooting for this film.”

No Nepotism: Palak chosen merely for her talent

The 17-year-old girl selected after searching for four months. Even after being Shweta Tiwari’s daughter, she was selected after auditioning hundreds of girls for four months. The makers wanted to ensure that Palak is chosen for her acting talent and because she is the daughter of some famous celebrity.

Pradip Atluri explained, “Finding the lead actress became a challenging task. We auditioned hundreds of girls and even thought that maybe we should go with an older girl. But after four months of search, we came across Palak Tiwari who blew us away with her acting skills, subtle expressions, and confidence in the audition. Also, the fact that she is a teenager helps her to get into the character easily and aids her performance.”
