Mugdha en­joys play­ing neg­a­tive char­ac­ters

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Entertainment - IANS

Model-turned-ac­tor Mugdha Godse (left) claims that she en­joyed es­say­ing a neg­a­tive char­ac­ter, with­out the typ­i­cal rona-dhona, in her up­com­ing film.

“My char­ac­ter is hun­gry for power and has a dom­i­nat­ing na­ture. It has grey shades and it’s the first time I’m play­ing a grey char­ac­ter and I en­joyed it thor­oughly. There’s a dif­fer­ent at­ti­tude with­out the usual ron­ad­hona rou­tine. My char­ac­ter has a dom­i­nat­ing na­ture and I en­joyed it a lot,” said Mugdha about her char­ac­ter at the mu­sic and trailer launch of the movie, in Mum­bai re­cently.

“The film is a love story. It’s a mu­si­cal and it’s ba­si­cally the story of a singer’s strug­gle in the mu­sic in­dus­try. In any in­dus­try where power and tal­ent dom­i­nate, peo­ple play games, but love al­ways wins in the end. There is a lot of ‘mirch-masala’ in the film,” she said.

In the movie, Mugdha plays a glam­orous char­ac­ter on the lines of her role in Mad­hur Bhan­darkar’s Fash­ion (2008), but there is noth­ing sim­i­lar about the two films. “Our im­age changes with ev­ery role. When we do glam­orous roles, we are known as glam­our girls and when we play non-glam­orous char­ac­ters, we are la­belled as the girl-next-door. I’m hop­ing that it’s a good change and peo­ple like my char­ac­ter,” the ac­tor said.

The film also stars Nis­hant Malkani and Mad­hurima Ban­er­jee. “I have been work­ing with a new star cast. You can see that in ev­ery film nowa­days, there is a new star cast. It’s a new trend that many peo­ple are ex­per­i­ment­ing with and I’m very happy to be a part of this change,” she added.

The film is di­rected by Naresh Mal­ho­tra who has pre­vi­ously di­rected films such as Yeh Dil­lagi (1994) and Dil Ka Rishta (2003).
