Shahana Goswami: Used to feel a presence in my house

From the power suits of Bombay Begums to the small-town cop act of The Last Hour is quite a leap for Shahana Goswami. She welcomes the change, only too happy to add a supernatural thriller to her repertoire. Asked if she was sold on the premise of the Amazon Prime Video offering — which revolves around a shaman who can talk to the dead and relive their last hour — at the first narration, the actor says the material resonated deeply with her.

“I believe in the supernatural. I have not only read such stories, but I used to feel a presence in one of my houses. I was so comfortable with her that I named her,” says Goswami, adding that her belief in the other realm has strengthened with time. “This show is interesting to me because it’s not a make-believe world, but is based on existing beliefs and traditions.”

The crime thriller sees her as a cop, alongside Sanjay Kapoor, as they investigate the murder of a small-time actor. Excited to don the khaki uniform for the Amit Kumar-directed series, Goswami says, “In the northeast [where the show is set], cops have a different uniform, comprising cargo pants and boots. It was a cool look. I have been a sporty person. So, it was easy to adopt the [athletic] body language.”
