Popular television presenter turned actress Mandira Bedi, who was last seen in Kollywood in Simbu-starrer 2004 film Manmadhan, is all set for a comeback with GV Prakash Kumar’s Adangathey. She plays a fierce cop in the movie, which will be directed by debutant Shanmugam Muthusamy.
As much as Mandira wanted to continue acting in Kollywood, especially after being appreciated for her role in Manmadhan, she was mostly offered roles that didn’t interest her. Hence, she had no other option than keeping herself away from the industry.
“I was offered only item numbers and did not want to accept as I had it ticked off my bucket list. Years later I got Adangathey, a Telugu and a Hindi script. I chose the Tamil movie over the two as the script was excellent. After this film, I hope people realize that I can do better than just doing item numbers,” she told Deccan Chronicle.
Excited about her comeback, she said that she’s looking forward to shoot in Trichy and Varanasi. But she rues that she won’t have time to exercise because of the film’s shoot. “I follow a strict routine and healthy diet to stay fit. Working out, genuinely makes me happy,” she said.
