About this suspense drama, Anurag Kashyap stated, “Choked: Paisa Bolta Hai is very close to my heart. It is the story of a strong-willed middle-class housewife, who finds cash flowing out of her kitchen sink every night, and how this changes her life. It is about relationships - and the precarious balance between truth, power and money,” reports IANS. Saiyami Kher who’ll be playing the character Sarita Pillai mentioned, “Sarita is a 30-year-old middle-class woman. She is the sole breadwinner, she is overworked and frustrated, yet tenacious and always scheming to build ‘that dream’. At one level Sarita is that every-woman. Nihit Bhave, our writer, has beautifully weaved the complexities of this middle class family. And I thank Anurag for trusting me with Sarita and letting me bring her to life. Working on the film has been a life changing experience for me." Peddlers: Anurag Kashyap, Vijay Varma, Guneet Monga Demand Eros to Release Vasan Bala’s Debut Film on an OTT Platform (View Tweets).
