Last seen in the 2004 Tamil film Manmadhan in a cameo, actor Mandira Bedi is returning to Kollywood after a decade.
The actor will be portraying the role of a cop in Adangathey directed by Shanmugam Muthusamy.
Talking about slipping into the shoes of a police officer, she told Hindustan Times, "I am very particular about the roles I play, so I ensure perfection in the characters that I portray on-screen. I also spent some time observing real cops, while I was shooting for this film."
Bedi learnt Tamil to play her part with ease. "Without understanding the language, Mandira wanted to give her best to the character, so she learned basic words and common phrases that are used in Tamil. She learned from the tutors and it took her two weeks time to learn the language," a source was quoted in the article.
Playing a cop should come naturally to her by now, given that she plays a cop in the Hindi TV series 24.
The film, also starring GV Prakash Kumar and Surbhi, is scheduled to release in later this year. Adangathey was shot predominantly against the backdrop of Varanasi.
