Mahie Gill: Beyond offbeat films, I want comedy, romance....

By FNN | February 25, 2012, 10:34pm IST
MUMBAI: Mahie Gill, who started her Bollywood career with Anurag Kashyap's "Dev D," a modern-day take on Devdas, says it's not a conscious decision to star in offbeat films. In fact, she wants to explore other genres too.

"I wanted to work with intelligent and good directors...these are the kind of films that they are making. They are offbeat subjects, interesting subjects, new subjects. I am lucky that I am doing that kind of roles," said Mahie.

"But at the same time as an actor, I need to explore myself further because I too want to do comedies, I want to do romantic roles," added the 36-year-old.

The critically acclaimed actress played characters with negative shades in "Sahib, Biwi aur Gangster" and "Not a Love Story", and says there's a special reason behind it.

"A lot of my directors tell me that I have a very innocent face. So when with an innocent face you play a character with negative shades, it looks even more interesting," said Mahie.

For now, she is set to play a deceitful Begum in the sequel of "Saheb, Biwi aur Gangster". Besides Mahie, Jimmy Shergill and Randeep Hooda, the sequel will also feature Soha Ali Khan and Irrfan Khan.

Mahie is currently busy promoting her forthcoming film "Paan Singh Tomar", which has Irrfan Khan as the male lead. Directed by Tigmanshu Dhulia, the film hits theatres March 2.
