Our all-time ‘comfort movie’ is ‘Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani’, says Saiee Manjrekar

Actress Saiee Manjrekar made her showbiz debut as a child with the Marathi film ‘Kaksparsh’. This was followed by her big screen debut with none other than the megastar Salman Khan starrer ‘Dabangg 3’. This film gave her the right platform to exhibit her acting skills. And she did not let anyone down with her performance. After seeing her performance in the film, someone had rightly commented, ‘A star is born’. This was followed by her other equally impressive performances in films including ‘Ghani’ (Telugu) and the much-appreciated ‘Major’, which starred Adi Shesh as the male lead.

When we asked her to name that one film that she would like to watch with her ‘Aai’ (mother), pat came the reply, “I think that me and my mom always sit together and see film. But it's been so very long now that we have not had the time to do so. But hopefully, we will be able to do so very soon. The comfort movie is ‘Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani’. When we are sitting at home and get bored or even of we are like happy-happy, or sad also, then, we will just put that movie on and watch it”.

On being asked about that one thing for which her mother always scolded her, Saiee said, “One thing for which my mother always scolded me was for eating a lot of junk food. I was extremely fond of junk food while growing up. And she would just say that ‘Oh, there is such lovely food like roti, sabzi, dal made at home, which is good for you. And you want to go out and eat that junk food’. She would get really, really upset. I have got scolded for not eating as much at home and for eating a lot of junk food, which, I have been trying to stop”.

And when Saiee was asked to name her favorite food which her mother made, she said, “My favourite food that my mom makes is fish curry, rice, fried fish, prawn pulao, ‘goad aamti' typical Maharashtrian dish), french beans ki sabzi.... there are so many. I think that everything that she makes is my favourite. She is the best chef in our house, and it is really lovely.

On the professional front, Saiee Manjrekar will now be seen in ‘Kuch Khattaa Ho Jaay’ and ‘Auron Mein Kaha Dum Tha’.
