Mahie Gill: Before GANG OF GHOSTS, no one was offering me comedies

By Joginder Tuteja, Glamsham Editorial

Though she has featured in a Punjabi comic film CARRY ON JATTA and has also been a part of a stray comic Bollywood outing UTT PATANG, Mahie Gill rues the fact that she has hardly been offered any films belonging to the comic genre. Such strong has been her presence in serious roles, as played in SAHEB BIWI AUR GANGSTER, SAHEB BIWI AUR GANGSTER RETURNS and DEV D to name a few that it is only occasionally when a filmmaker thinks of her in an out-and-out comedy, as has been the case with GANG OF GHOSTS where Ratan Jain and Satish Kaushik felt that she was the right fit for the role.

"I really liked this whole idea about playing a ghost of an old time actress. In a way the film is also a satire on the system, something which I found really interesting. While not many are offering me comedy films for some strange reasons, I was thrilled with the interesting concept and idea that Satishji brought to me. I was sure about stepping into the set up despite this being an ensemble affair. Otherwise if you look at my films, I have mostly played a solo lead," says Mahie who is sharing screen space with debutant Meera Chopra in GANG OF GHOSTS.

Time and again there are stereotypes associated with ghosts. Are they being broken in this film?

"Well, I would be seen in a black saree for one of the songs, though it won't be stereotypically ghastly, as is expected in a film with ghosts," smiles Mahie, "As a matter of fact I am playing a very colorful ghost. Though my character Manoranjana is from the 50s, her ghost changes with times and wears costumes from the 70s, 90s and then the current times. She wants to look like a girl from today and give a run for the money. Now how much more contemporary can a ghost get," smiles Mahie.

We agree.
