Mugdha enjoys playing negative characters
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).
