For actress Mahi Gill, it is good to be a part of events than being a part of films, in which actresses are just featured to be an eye candy. Mahi, who was attending the ongoing Chandigarh Music and Film Festival at Chandigarh University, Mohali stated;
Is se acha hai logon ke functions ke ribbon kaat lu, taki kharcha paani nikalta rahe (Better I attend functions as a guest of honour so that I keep making my bread and butter).With Bollywood films like Paan Singh Tomar, Dev.D, and Saheb, Biwi Aur Gangster to her credit, this Punjab di kudi has also proven her potential in Punjabi cinema as well as in theater. But, why we get to see her in limited films, we ask Mahi?
There is a big reason and you will be shocked if I tell you about it.- she quips, and continues spilling the beans…
I have a phobia of appearing for auditions, I just can’t. If a director has decided to cast me in a film and calls me for the screen test, I am okay doing this. But auditions are just not my cup of tea. I start fumbling the moment someone says action.- shares the actresses. But, then how she is able to act spectacularly in films, we wonder?
I don’t know, May be, it is camera in front of which I am most comfortable. Even I am extremely confident when I do theatre plays. There is something wrong with auditions only I guess (smiles).Nevertheless, Mahi says that getting paid and doing senseless films makes no sense to her.
Give me a good script and I will put my hundred percent efforts to it. But, if there no strong story base, what is the purpose of doing a film?Having tried her hand in producing films, which couldn’t be a successful idea, Mahi is not reluctant to turn a producer again.
I think I will produce films in future, but only those for which my instinct will nod positively. I know today people want to see real people in films. So, anything big or small, which will depict a realistic story may have my back as a producer.- avers the actress, who is gearing up for the release of her upcoming Bollywood films Saheb, Biwi Aur Gangster 3 and Phamous.
