Mahima Chaudhary returns to Bollywood


By Hindustan Times

After an impressive debut opposite Shah Rukh Khan in Subhash Ghai's Pardes, Mahima Chaudhary failed to shine at Bollywood. The actor is all set to make a comeback with debutante director Wilfred Lobo's film Mumbhai. Sourav Chakravarthy, executive producer, confirmed the news.

"The film is based on a true story and every character in the film is real. When we approached Mahima she was very clear that this is not her comeback, as she had never really gone anywhere. It's just that she was not getting interesting characters to play," he told Mumbai Mirror.

Sourav revealed more about the film. "The film is about an ex-commissioner (Om Puri) whose son was a former Assistant Commissioner of Police. After his son dies, Puri finds his diary through which he realises that his son was on a mission. Sanjay Kapoor is a criminal as is Arya Babbar. Mahima plays Sanjay's wife and she helps Om Puri in completing his son's mission. The question is, does our society really allow these criminals to be reformed," he added.

The film also stars Om Puri, Arya Babbar and Sanjay Kapoor.
