Bhagyashree makes her Directorial Debut
With her petite looks and her girl next door image it would be a little difficult to believe that actor Bhagyashree has chosen a very naughty subject of a married man's fantasies for her maiden film but then she says, "I know most women directors choose to make women oriented and socially relevant films but then I wanted my first film to be different." The actress who stormed into Bollywood with 'Maine Pyar Kiya' opposite Salman Khan followed by a successful stint in the film industry and some good serials on television has decided to add one more feather in her cap. This time she has written and directed her debut tele film called 'Uff Yum Maa' for Star One's Friday film slot, Studio One. Hubby Himalay has produced the film and is very proud of his wife. He says, "She was always a good actress but she is a fantastic writer too. She's done a great job with the film." About the telefilm, which stars Sooraj Thapar, Anjali Mukhi and Bijal, Bhagyshree says, "It's an adult comedy about a married man fantasizing about another woman while his wife is away. It results into funny situations at the end of which he realizes there's no body better than your own wife!" And has she woven into her script any of her husband's fantasies? "Well, I'm not telling you though yes I have used a line which he often uses, "Eighteen till I die!"
The actress says she had been toying with the idea of directing for a long time now. "We are working on our feature film for the big screen and were reviewing scripts for television when we heard of Star One's film slot. We then decided to start off with something and that's how 'Uff Yum Maa' happened." While her family and friends have obviously liked her maiden effort she says, "it's the channel which gave me positive feedback, the technical crew of the channel was very pleased with the final outcome," she tells us.
Himalay whose company Shristi Entertainment has produced the film welcomes the idea of Studio One. "It's a great platform for directors."
Coming up next is a feature film "which is a romantic thriller to be directed by Ananth Mahadevan in 2005 and a few more films for Star One and Zee."
Meanwhile Bhagyashree awaits viewers' response to her first film. And knowing her sincerity and talent, we know she has no reason to worry
