Mahie decides to go glam after 'Dev D', 'Gulaal'

By Joginder Tuteja

Mumbai, March 27 (IANS) Actress Mahie Gill, who impressed audiences with her mature performance in "Dev D" and "Gulaal", said she will be seen in glamorous roles in her forthcoming films.

"As an actor I want to do all kinds of roles and work in different genre of films. 'Dev D' was a fantastic appearance while 'Gulaal' did see me in a semi-glam avtar as I played a mistress-cum-mujra dancer who was a huge fan of Tabu. However, none of the films had me running around the trees," said Mahie.

So is running around the trees and singing romantic numbers next on the anvil?

"Why not? I pretty much love conventional Bollywood cinema. And don't forget that I have worked as a heroine in Punjabi films as well. So it is not going to be anything surprisingly different for me to get into a typical heroine mode," she said.

Mahie, who has been one of the newcomers this year, will now be seen in two more UTV productions "Aage Se Right" and "Paan Singh Tomar". So is she in some kind of contract with the production house?

"No, not at all. I don't have any kind of contract with them. They just saw the rushes of 'Dev D' and signed me on soon after."

Talking about her roles in the two films, Mahie said: "'Aage Se Right' is a comic thriller in which I play a reporter. I would be seen in a semi-glam part though there is a song where people will get to see me in a full-on glam avtar. I am paired opposite Shreyas Talpade in the film."

Directed by Indrajit Nattoji, "Aage Se Right" is set in Mumbai and spans over five days of panic, chaos and mayhem when a sub-inspector loses his gun. This triggers off a series of incidents that gets progressively complicated yet comic and, as the gun travels, it passes through the most unlikely set of characters and links them together.

"Another film of mine is 'Paan Singh Tomar' which is the true epic journey of a talented runner (Irrfan Khan) who turned into a rebel! This film has me in a non-glam role though. Tigmanshu Dhulia, the film's director, has done an excellent job with his characters in the film," she said.

"Paan Singh Tomar" is about an athlete who gave up his running shoes, became a rebel and wreaked havoc in the Chambal Valley.
