New innings!

HER "EXTRAA Innings" on Sony Max during World Cup 2003 made Mandira Bedi a household name.

For the time being her stint in the commentary box seems to have ended and she is back to acting on the small and the big screens. Last week, Mandira was in Chennai to hold discussions with Parthipan for his forthcoming film "Lingam" in which she is likely to play heroine. Mandira is rumoured to be doing a deglamourised role of a slum girl in the film. SREEDHAR PILLAI
