In 1946, the white actress Jean Simmons was cast for the character of the silent dancing girl Kanchi in the British film production Black Narcissus (1947). Wearing dark make-up and a jewel in her nose, she played the »exotic temptress« of the novel of the same name. House of Women recasts the role, auditioning only Indian expat or first-generation British Asian women and non-binary individuals living in London. Unlike in the original role, the re-cast Kanchi of the 21st Century speaks.
