"I can do a Tamil, Telugu or any other language film, but I am (was) scared of doing a Bengali film. (Now) I have got over that, and I'm working with some amazing actors and I'm looking forward to it," she said.

"Nirbaak" will be directed by National award winning director Srijit Mukherjee and produced by Venkatesh Films. The film also stars Jisshu Sengupta and Ritwick Chakraborty.

Meanwhile, there has been talk that the audience may get to see Sushmita and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan together soon.

Asked about it, Sushmita said: "This unfortunately is something that Gaurang Doshi (producer) will be able to answer better. But yes there is a script both of us are considering together."
