Even as she is excited about an offer to act in an Urdu play, Mandira Bedi is busy acting in the film "Shaadi Ka Laddoo" produced by her husband.

After "Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge", this will be her first substantial role in Bollywood and Mandira seems to be making the most of it.

One more film starring her, "Divorce Me", has been announced.

"It is the story of a kid who fails to get the deserved attention from his busy parents and how he gets inspired by a lawyer, played by Jackie Shroff, to divorce his own parents! Based on an American case where a kid actually filed for divorce - I play his mom who is a famous TV celebrity and always busy," Mandira told IANS.

"Right now I'm very excited with my career and would love to do theatre too along with my other commercial work. I have got a very interesting offer for an Urdu play which I plan to take up and announce soon," she says.
