Hit ya miss!

It’s been a year since my first movie Fashion was released last Diwali. With two new and very different films scheduled for release, I am torn between anxiety, excitement and a strange feeling of deja vu,” says actress Mugdha Godse.

The first film scheduled for release is All The Best, directed by Rohit Shetty. It is a comedy where she co-stars with Ajay Devgan, Bipasha Basu, Sanjay Dutt and Fardeen Khan. “It was a role that I thoroughly enjoyed doing and it certainly helped expand my repertoire as an actress. The chemistry among the cast was so good that there was plenty of fun and laughter on the set, in keeping with the spirit of a good comedy,” she laughs.

Her second film Jail by Madhur Bhandarkar where she stars opposite Neil Nitin Mukesh is also due for release soon. It tests her mettle as an actress on a whole at a different level. Mugdha is now busy with promoting both her films while shooting for a third where she stars with Bobby Deol. “That is going to be a different genre, in fact, a horror film but we are not rushing through it right now as I am busy with the promos,” she adds.

Her role in Jail required that she completely shed her glamourous persona and adopt the well scrubbed look of the girl-next-door, who leads an ordinary life but is forced to deal with extraordinary circumstances.

“Madhur asked me to scrub my face clear of make-up and only then get into the part on my first day on the set. The story revolves around a regular guy Parag Dixit, who lands in jail due to an unfortunate series of events. I play his girlfriend, the one who stands by him and gives him strength through his ordeal. It is a strong and sensitive part and very real,” she says.

“The only make-up I used in the film was eye-liner and mascara. My clothes are also very different from the high fashion trendy look that came straight from the ramps in Fashion which the audiences really liked. I’m sure they will respond well to the understated elegance in Jail too,” she adds.

Madhur encouraged her to play strong female parts and gave her the confidence to test her screen persona minus the glamour quotient.

With plenty of big screen action on the cards, Mugdha hasn’t forgotten her love for the ramp and her passion for modelling. “It’s something that I will always go back to whenever possible,” she insists.
