“He is a fabulous director and I had a blast shooting for the film,” says the sexy lady. In a free-wheeling interview with CS, Mugdha talks about work, regional cinema and why worrying doesn’t help in Bollywood
So far, so good
I am glad that Prakash sir chose me for this film. I am working opposite Ajay Devgn, who is a wonderful co-star. There is another film with Vinay Pathak, which is keeping me busy. Till date, I have tried to choose the best projects from what's been offered to me and that has worked. Directors know that I can act as well as add glamour to a film. I still have a long way to go though and hope to do bigger films.
I would love to be a part of Marathi cinema in a big way. I love watching Marathi films and I feel that the industry has some great filmmakers and actors. Our films have always done well receiving numerous awards at the national level. However, they are getting noticed now because of the collections they are making at box offices. My dream is to work with Rajiv Patil, who made ‘Jogwa’. We have been in talks and hope something will happen now. I know that I can add chutzpah to Marathi films but I would love to do something more substantial.
The jhatka tales
Acting is inherent; at least that’s what I believe. It gave me a lot of confidence when people on the sets of ‘Fashion’ told me that I could emote. Over the years, I have worked on my dialogue delivery and dance moves. Bollywood dancing was one thing I was quite uncomfortable with. Well, I have picked up now. I feel that I am a director's actor.
I don’t lose my sleep over competition. My worrying is not going to stop someone from entering into Bollywood or signing a film. I remember what Shah Rukh Khan had said in an interview about making it big in Bollywood is easy, but sustaining your success is extremely tough. I want a long career in the industry and that needs patience.
