An insider disclosed, “The film is a crime thriller which deals with examinations mafia. It is about how brilliant students are put in place of weaker students so that their entrance examinations can be cleared. Ashwini has taken the film to the next level as he has made the entire proceedings high tech. It actually happens today, in not just the big cities but also smaller centers where concealed listening devices and cameras are put to use to make students cheat. A cybercrime officer is given this assignment to crack the crime. Sonnalli Seygall plays this part.”
One of her friends said, “Even in real life, Sonnalli is quite well versed with everything that is cyber. Moreover, she has a strong personality too which makes her pass off as a cop quite comfortably. She has the height and the built that makes her come across as someone who is a no-nonsense person. You can’t mess with her in real life as well and this is the part of her personality that she has brought to fore in Setters as well.”
“Sonnalli has been around since 2011 and Setters is clearly a challenging part for her as there has hardly been a leading lady from Bollywood who has played a cybercrime expert in the past. You need a certain kind of persona and inherent intelligence to play such a part and Sonnalli is just the right fit,” a senior crew member of Setters adds.
