What made you take up this role?
I am always on the look out for different characters and when I got this offer to play Salman Khan’s mother I immediately said yes because the production house was good and took good care of its actors and were prompt in paying the money to their actors and making them comfortable , it was a great experience.
How was it like working with Salman Khan?
Salman Khan is a gem of a guy and we had many easy conversations in Marathi and since he is comfortable in Marathi we conversed a lot in
Marathi on the sets. Though he is a superstar he doesn’t have any airs and is an easygoing guy.
So does this mean that you will play senior characters now?
Not at all. I have done films like Mission Kashmir and Dil Chahta Hai and depends on what kind of films am offered.
Do you find any difference in Marathi and Hindi film industries ?
The budgets of Hindi films are huge as compared to Marathi films and the logistics too are very different and Marathi cinema is concentrating on content.
I am writing a few books and columns and considering a few film offers in Marathi and Hindi.
