"I am doing a film with Atul Agnihotri. It has an ensemble cast, and it is called 'Oye Teri'. It is a political satire," Mandira told IANS.
"I play an interesting grey character. In India, there are either black or white characters, but I play a grey one. The role appealed to me," said the actress, who has already shot for a couple of days for the movie.
Meanwhile, she is geared up to host kids' singing reality show "Indian Idol Junior", and she is even upbeat about returning to the fiction genre on the small screen after a gap of nine years.
