Madhoo is ready to play Ajay Devgn’s mother on screen: “It’s a challenge”

en Bollywood News Madhoo is ready to play Ajay Devgn’s mother on screen: “It’s a challenge”

Madhoo previously stated that she would not take on the character of Ajay Devgn's mother. Madhoo made her Bollywood debut in Phool Aur Kaante, starring Ajay.

Madhoo had recently addressed her earlier statement regarding playing the role of Ajay Devgn's mother if she is cast that way, expressing a change of perspective. In a conversation with Zoom, Madhoo acknowledged her previous stance but emphasized her growth and evolution as an actor. She stated that she now views such a role as a challenge rather than an outright refusal.

In the interview, Madhoo clarified her earlier statement and said, “That statement was taken out of context. I said if, hypothetically… I am correcting myself now because I have evolved as an actor. I made the statement 2-3 years ago, in some other context. In the 2-3 years, I have realized I have played many different roles. I played an apsara [fairy] in Shakuntalam with Samantha [Ruth Prabhu]. So, when I play, as an actor, actually I am enjoying the liberty and freedom of being an actor today. Back in the 90s, we were put in a box. We romanced, we sang, we danced. But now, with OTT, stories and content, I think that is kind of broken away. A lot of great opportunities are coming for every actor.”

She continued, “So, today I am thinking as an actor if I do get a role where they say you have to look older than Ajay, and play his mother's role, I would take it as a challenge as an actor. If I get a role where I have to play any yesteryear lead actor's mother's role, I would look at it as a challenge and not as a sexist, controversy or that kind of a conversation. Let me see if I am convincing.”

Madhoo made her Bollywood debut in the film Phool Aur Kaante, in 1991, opposite Ajay Devgn. She will next appear in the thriller Kartam Bhugtam, which also stars Shreyas Talpade and Vijay Raaz.
