New Delhi, June 29 (Calcutta Tube) Actress Sonali Bendre, who has been missing from the big screen for quite a while, says her filmmaker husband Goldie Behl wants her to return to the silver screen and says this is the right time for her to venture into movies.
‘Goldie thinks that I should be acting now… he thinks the kind off cinema that is being made today is what I used to do when I was active in Bollywood. Playing loud characters was never my forte… my forte has always been enacting quite and real roles which is happening in the industry now,’ Sonali told IANS.
‘He keeps telling me, ‘You know, I think you are making a mistake. You should be doing movies now, lot of interesting things are happening and you fit right in them’. Even my mother-in-law keeps telling me the same thing,’ she added.
But Sonali makes it clear that movies are not on her cards right now.
‘Well I agree the roles and the kind of scripts that are being made today are my type, but I have my own opinion. I follow my thinking and don’t get swayed so easily. I don’t think I’m ready for films because it takes a lot of commitment. I’m not ready for that kind of commitment,’ Sonali said.
The 35-year-old, who worked in films like ‘Major Saab’, ‘Sarfarosh’, ‘Zakhm’, ‘Hum Saath Saath Hain’ and ‘Humara Dil Aapke Pass Hai’, bid adieu to movies after tying the knot with Behl in 2002.
And any plans to get into production?
‘I’m married in a film family and we have our own production house. So it’s not that I have to go out and then get into production. I’m already into it. But other than that I think production requires certain amount of mindset and training, which I lack.
‘I’m not trained like them. I do have an aesthetic sense of what I like or what I don’t like. Definitely I can give my opinion on it, but beyond that the day-to-day running has to be left to the professionals,’ she added.
The actress is set to grace the small screen once again as the judge of second season of Colors’ reality show ‘India’s Got Talent’. Director Sajid Khan and actress Kirron Kher will join her in the judges’ panel.
