Mugdha Godse is in a happy place right now
From playing a starry-eyed model in Fashion to a tough woman whose life is thrown asunder when her fiancé is arrested and sentenced to a life term in prison in Jail, model-turned-actor Mugdha Godse has won a great deal of acclaim in the two years that she has been part of Bollywood.
She was a model for nearly five years before making her debut in Madhur Bhandarkar's Fashion that catapulted her to stardom. Though Jail flopped, she garnered critical acclaim in the film where she starred alongside Neil Nithin Mukesh. “I owe a great deal to Madhur. He is a great director and provided me a brilliant platform.”
Mugdha says: “I love modelling and enjoy acting as well. Acting requires a completely different skill set and perspective. Initially, I faced some teething issues, but have enjoyed the journey since.”
“I always make an effort to understand the character better and do include some elements of my personality. I like experimenting with different genres of films.”She is thrilled that the newer filmmakers are changing the contours of the industry and making movies that boast of a good script and different storylines. For newbies making a beeline to the film industry, she says, “It has become easier to gain a foothold in the industry. However, making it big requires a combination of hard work and a fair bit of luck as well.”
“I have to finish shooting an untitled horror movie that will be released in March 2010.”NIKHIL VARMA
