Charlie Chaplin's grand-daughter Kiera Chaplin is preparing to release her first Bollywood film Chaurahen.

The Rajshree Ojha-directed project gets its theatrical release next month, four years after it was originally completed, reports Hindustan Times.

Speaking about casting Chaplin in the film, Ojha explained: "She had watched my first film Moment, which I made when as a student in America. It fetched me a Student Academy Award.

"She showed an interest in working with me and I told her that I was shooting it in India. She had no issue with that, so I sent her the script, which she liked."

The 2007 film, which was made prior to Ojha's Aisha, has been shot at locations across India.

"It's an urban film about relationships. Set in three cities, the film shows a Mumbai couple going through ups and downs in their relationship, an extramarital affair in Kolkata, and a father coming to terms with his son's death in Kochi," said the filmmaker.

The movie also stars Zeenat Aman, Victor Banerjee, Roopali Ganguly, Soha Ali Khan and Shayan Munshi.

Ali Khan indicated that she had been inspired by Charlie Chaplin for her role in Chemistry.

Chaurahen will release March 16.
