After catching our attention in Naqaab, Urvashi Sharma is back in a big way after disappearing from our screens through contractual problems. Is she pleased to be back in the limelight? “You know, when I was in school, I used to perform and do everything to stay away from studies; be it sports, singing, dancing or whatever,” she says, “I used to love the fact that I was on stage and everybody was looking at me. It gave me a different kind of a high. Plus, I am also a very good looking girl so I always got that extra attention.”
Delhi-born Urvashi now has a number of exciting new projects in the works, including Chai Garam with Govinda, Esha Deol and Celina Jaitley – and she has recently finished shooting Baabarr with Soham Shah. Billed as a tragedy, the latter film is set largely in Lucknow and Urvashi features as the love interest to the gangster played by Soham.
Also, in the works is Chassni, a movie about the difficult situation faced by older people in India without a family. The film stars Jaya Bachchan, Raveena Tandon in her comeback movie, newly-wed Ayesha Takia and Urvashi. The film is looking for a new hero after R Madhavan had to drop out following a clash in dates. “Once a film has so many ladies in the cast, a hero is as hard to find as mangoes in the desert,” said a cast member.
