Am careful about picking up films – Mahie Gill

Mahie Gill who started off quite well with DEV D and GULAAL has pretty much disappeared from the arena, after NOT A LOVE STORY and now SAHEB, BIWI AUR GANGSTER. One wonders what really was she waiting for that made her go so slow.

I wasn’t going slow. On the contrary I have been working in quite a few films. Today I have four more films lined up for release. Having said that, there was a time period immediately after DEV D when I was being quite careful about picking up my next lot of films. I am an outsider in the industry and didn’t know what sort of films to do and what not to do. Even though there were dozens of scripts lined up for me to go through, I wasn’t intelligent enough to point at anything in particular and decide things on my own. I chose to wait for the entire set up to be in place before I became a part of it

One hopes she doesn’t have much grudge today. After all, there are films like PAAN SINGH TOMAR with Irfan Khan, MICHAEL with Naseeruddin Shah and BUDHHA IN THE TRAFFIC JAM with Anupam Kher/Arunoday Singh lined up for her before the first half of 2012 is through.
