British filmmaker Michael Winterbottom has adapted Thomas Hardy’s classic Tess to make the film Trishna relocating the backdrop to Rajasthan and starring Freida Pinto.
The Hindi version to be released in India will have an item song by Huma Qureshi of Gangs Of Wasseypur fame. Sunil Bohra, producer of the Hindi version, says that there is a situation in the film where Pinto goes to a Mumbai studio to meet Anurag Kashyap and the item song is placed there as being shot on the sets.
Freida Pinto is also seen in some very passionate love making scenes in the film and the Indian Censor Board may impose some cuts on those scenes. Bohra feels that the item song will compensate for the deletion of those scenes.
