Mumbai, June 25 (IANS) "Chak De! India" fame actress Shilpa Shukla, who will be seen as a seductress in forthcoming film "B.A. Pass", says her theatre experience helped her a lot while preparing for her character in the film.

Directed by Ajay Bahl, "B.A. Pass" is said to be based on one of the stories, The Railway Aunty by Mohan Sikka, from the book "Delhi Noir". The film talks about male prostitution and Shilpa will be seen as Sarika Aunty in the movie.

"To relate (with that character) directly was difficult for me, but since we keep on doing theatre, so we have a sense of observing (others). Like somebody crossing the road or a young boy sitting in the car and an aunty driving... by watching all this we tend to construct a fictional story in our mind. So, such glimpses were there in my mind," Shilpa said here in an interview.

An erotic human drama "B.A. Pass" will unfold the story of a small town boy who comes to Delhi to finish his college, but soon he is seduced by a mysterious married woman.

Shilpa said the film is close to reality and highlights the pressure on today's youth.

"We need to be sensitive specially towards youth. The film's story is of one Mukesh, but it represents a lot of people," said the actress last seen in the 2011 release "Bhindi Baazaar Inc."

"It represents the pressure that the youth has to go through to earn quick money" and while doing that "they don't come to know about right and wrong".

On being asked why she chose to make her comeback with such a bold character, Shilpa said: "I did the film because for me, it was a way of making people compassionate."
