English actor Sarita Choudhary has been confirmed to star in the HBO Max revival of the popular show Sex and the City named ‘And Just Like That…’.
According to a report, the actor will be playing the role of a single, self-made real estate broker named Seema Patel. The production of the 10 episode show has already begun in New York last week.
Apart from Choudhury, the other cast members of the show are Nicole Ari Parker and Karen Pittman. The executive producer of the show Michael Patrick King said in a statement that everyone in the show is thrilled to have the amazing and vibrant actors join the Sex and the City family, as each of them will add their unique spark and big heart to the new characters and the stories.
Sarita Catherine Louise Choudhury was born in Blackheath, London to Julia Patricia and Prabhas Chandra Choudhury, who is a scientist of Indian Bengali descent. The actor finished her higher education at Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario, Canada, where she studied economics and cinema.
Choudhury is best known for her role in the 1992 feature film Mississippi Masala, for which she received her Screen Actors Guild card, and has worked in films like A Perfect Murder, 3 A.M., Gloria and Just a Kiss.
When she appeared in Mississippi Masala, Choudhury was working in Manhattan’s East Village as a waitress to make ends meet. After the film became a hit, the actor featured in several projects including Wild West, The House of the Spirits, and Fresh Kill.
The actor has also worked in an Indian film For Real, which was released in 2009 and was directed by an independent filmmaker Sona Jain. The film revolves around a six-year-old girl who believes that her mother has been replaced by an alien from the Orion galaxy.
Choudhury talked about the film in an interview with The Statesman and said that after her films started doing well, she thought that she has not shot a film in India, which is something she wanted to do. “There were Bollywood offers but it was not until Sona’s script that made me look at India,” she added.
