ANTRA MALI in AND ONCE AGAIN
Remember Antara Mali? The girl who created enough hullabaloo with RGV's films, especially, MAIN MADHURI DIXIT BANNA CHAHTI HOON, COMPANY, GAYAB, NAACH, MR YA MISS. Well the actress, who sort of vanished for quite a while, has turned a Buddhist monk.
Oh! Before you make your grey cells active, let us tell you that it's the role which she plays in veteran actor and now a director, Amol Palekar's upcoming film AND ONCE AGAIN. The film also stars Rajat Kapoor and Rituparna Sengupta. Antara Mali plays Rajat Kapoor's first wife 'Savitri', who in a violent attack gets alienated and later ends up being a monk in Sikkim.
Amol Palekar's AND ONCE AGAIN talks about while dealing with intricacies of man-woman relationship, the film subtly talks about repercussions of violence on human life: its lingering shadow on all of us with its startling shades! Somehow we manage to draw a line between our past and present...
In Amol Palekar's AND ONCE AGAIN, Antara dons a completely de-glam avatar. Infact to play the monk, she has even shaved her head.
It seems she is quite serious about her second innings in Bollywood. Welcome back Antara!
