Shweta Tripathi was last seen with Nawazuddin Siddiqui in HARAAMKHOR. The actress has since then juggling her schedule for her Amazon Prime series, Mirzapur which also stars Ali Fazal and Vikrant Massey.
After her last collaboration with Anurag Kashyap with ZOO (India’s first film to be completely shot on an iPhone) Shweta is all geared up to reunite with Anurag. This time she will be seen in a film by Arati Kadav who has earlier directed a short film called TIME MACHINE and is now geared up to make her feature film debut.
Arati has come up with sci-fi film named CARGO which will be a full-length feature film. The film will have Shweta Tripathi paired with Vikrant Massey in the lead role and it is mostly going to be based inside a spaceship orbiting in the space. This is the second time Shweta and Vikrant will be working together after Mirzapur.
This film is going to be produced by Anurag Kashyap, Vikramaditya Motwane, and Shlok Sharma. The film goes on floor in January 2018 and will have Shweta work with Vikrant again after Mirzapur.
Talking about this project Shweta said, "It’s great to work with people you trust and who trust you. Anurag Kashyap has been a mentor to so many of us. Him and Vikram supporting our endeavors means so much to us. Sci-Fi is a genre we have hardly explored and I am so excited to be a part of CARGO."
She further added, "The biggest compliment for me which I love is when somebody writes a part for me keeping me in mind. So Arati when she has written the film, in fact, the character name she wrote as Shweta, now we are changing the character name but when I got the script it was Shweta. So then we know there is certain trust and faith they are having it in you, that makes me very happy because I am extremely choosy about the kind of work I am doing and it's not easy at all because there are so many frustrating days where you just waiting for things to happen. So when films like these happen then you feel like something you are doing is right."
