The perfect actress to star in ‘Seducing Ingrid Bergman’. Jessica is no stranger to portraying strong, intelligent women and this role deserves an actress of her immeasurable talent. We also feel that she will bring a unique perspective as a producer.

‘Seducing Ingrid Bergman’ is a passionate love story between World War II photographer Robert Capa and ‘Casablanca’ famed Ingrid Bergman. Ingrid Bergman was a celebrated Swedish actress of her time. She won three Academy Awards, two Emmy Awards, four Golden Globes, a BAFTA, and a Tony Award for Best Actress.

Chastain’s production house is “thrilled” to be working with YRF Entertainment, and so are we. This is a huge leap for Bollywood and we hope that it pans out well for everyone.
