Mahie Gill regaled audience with her mature performance in DEV D and recently released GULAAL. Though she played a non-glam role in both the films directed by Anurag Kashyap, in films to follow she would be applying greasepaint with vengeance. So get set to see a glam Mahie in her future films.
'As an actor I want to do all kind 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', says Mahie.
So is running around the trees and singing romantic numbers next in 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', says Mahie who has been one of the few newcomers this year who has made an impression amongst the bigwigs of the industry.
Result is that after DEV D, she will be seen in two more UTV productions this year, AAGE SE RIGHT and PAAN SINGH TOMAR. So is she in some kind of contract with the production house?
'No, not at all', denies Mahie, '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 look in the two films, Mahie says, 'AAGE SE RIGHT is a comic thriller and 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. On the other hand, since PAAN SINGH TOMAR is based on a true story, I would be seen in a non-glam role.'
