B-town Buzz: Soundarya Sharma takes the digital route; John Abraham's southern comfort

Ranchi Diaries (2017) actor Soundarya Sharma, who is stranded in Los Angeles, has something to cheer about. Her digital debut, Raktanchal, is set to release. The drama is inspired by real events in the '80s. The dentist-turned-actor, who had enrolled for a filmmaking course in the US, is unable to fly back due to the lockdown.

Speaking about her role, Soundarya Sharma said, "I was on a strict diet that is the Mediterranean diet. It's a lot of discipline as I love food. It's low carb and my body felt different after doing this. I moved better and different. There were things which were new to me. This character is an amazing one and I wanted to do everything possible to get it right. I hope the audience loves it."

Raktanchal is a period drama set in the 1980s in Uttar Pradesh. It explores the nexus of politics and the mafia. Soundarya will be playing a de-glam character in the project.
