Life looks up for Mugdha Godse
F rom 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 and ‘Fashion'. He is a great director and provided me a brilliant platform.”
Says Mugdha: “I love modelling and enjoy acting as well. Acting requires a completely different skill set and perspective. Initially, I faced some problems, but have enjoyed the journey since. I cannot pick any clear favourites now.”
Talking of the nitty-gritty of acting, she says: “I always make an effort to understand the character better and do include some elements of my personality into my characters. I feel it helps make the character more realistic. I like experimenting with different genres of films. Doing a variety of roles helps you learn and grow as an actor.”
She is currently busy reading through numerous scripts. “I have to finish shooting an untitled horror movie that will be released in March 2010.”NIKHIL VARMA
