Gulmohar: Sharmila Tagore on returning to acting with Manoj Bajpayee-led film, calls it a ‘wonderful experience’

Veteran actress Sharmila Tagore is making her comeback to the big screen this year, after a period of more than a decade, in Gulmohar. The family drama will see her share the screen with The Family Man star Manoj Bajpayee. The actress recently opened up about the project, and why she chose to make her comeback with the film.

In conversation with TOI, Sharmila said that the film was a family drama, in which ‘everybody has a secret’, despite being close to each other. Sharmila plays the role of the family matriarch, while Manoj plays her son. The actress said that it was a difficult film to explain, and people had to see it to know what it was really about. Saying the film was one everybody can ‘identify’ with, the actress talked about the reactions and interactions in the film were things that every family witnessed. She also talked about how good the music was and that she had a ‘wonderful experience’ and was able to enjoy herself.

The actress revealed that one of the main reasons she chose to make her come back with Gulmohar was because her role in the film was very interesting and unique. “It’s not just another grandmother character. I play myself; I play my age neither older nor younger”, she added. Sharmila also talked about how she looked forward to working with Manoj, saying she admired him a lot.

In addition to Sharmila and Manoj, the upcoming film also features

Amol Palekar, Suraj Sharma, Kaveri,Simran Rishi Bagga and Utsavi Jha in pivotal roles. Rahul V Chittella has directed the film from a script penned by himself and Arpita Mukherjee.
