She’s all the rage in the Telugu film fraternity and reigns with the crown of ultimate glam diva however when it comes to Shraddha Das’s persona in the Hindi Film Industry the actresses has perhaps both consciously and unconsciously opted for a much different persona thanks to her debut film Lahore which not only was highly critically acclaimed but also garnered her a lot of appreciation from far and wide.
Now she’s ready to take yet another big leap in her career as she’s to be one of the stars in Madhur Bhandarkar’s upcoming comedy film Dil Toh Bachcha Hai Ji in which she is said to be seen romancing Omi Vaidya of 3 Idiots fame.
Clearly the actress is elated to be working with the National Award winning director. “I met Madhur a couple of months ago with my portfolio and then he calls me this week to lock my dates. I am very excited as it will be my first big project and that too with a National Award winning director,” said a very overjoyed Shraddha.
Madhur went onto confirm and confess to the media that yes Shraddha is the chosen actress for the role in question and he chose her even though he hadn’t seen Lahore in its entirety. “I haven’t seen the whole film, but from what little I have seen of her, Shraddha comes across as a confident and focused actress,” stated Madhur.
Kudos to the actress for scoring one of the most talked about films as it is not everyday that Madhur Bhandarkar decides to break free from the shackles of his need to make socially driven films and opts for a comical drama. Time will if Bhandarkar is as successful in this genre as he is in his usual one.
