Looking sexy all the time is boring: Mahie Gill
Mumbai: Actor Mahie Gill, who is known for her roles in films such as Dev.D, Saheb, Biwi Aur Gangster and Paan Singh Tomar, says that she has been stereotyped for her sensual beauty for long, and adds that "just looking good" on-screen is "boring".
Mahie returns in the hardhitting digital film, Posham Pa, where she is cast as a Marathi sex worker. Was it a difficult image to essay?
"I am quite hungry as an actor and I say no very easily because I have been getting only one kind of scripts and characters. I became typecast, because people would call me up only when they needed someone to play a sensual woman – someone who is bold and beautiful," she said.
"Honestly, looking sexy all the time is boring. I mean, I am more than my appearance. I am an actor, a performer. Slowly, I am shifting gear to performance-oriented roles," Mahie added.
Directed by Suman Mukhopadhyay, 'Posham Pa' also features Ragini Khanna and Sayani Gupta, and reloves around the story of two serial killers.
Posham Pa releases on August 21, on the OTT platform ZEE5.
