Good news for fans of the enigmatic Rakhee Gulzar. This week when her daughter Meghna Gulzar’s Sam Bahadur opened in theatres, Rakhee Gulzar has decided to return to acting.Rakhee Gulzar on signing the Bengali film Amar Boss, “I really liked the script, we are likely to start shoot in January”
Speaking exclusively to this writer Rakhee di said, “Ye, I am doing another Bengali film after five years. If you remember I had done a Bengali film Mukti in 2018. Normally, I’d say no to any acting offer, no matter how tempting. But when the director of Mukti had told me that he was doing a screen adaptation of Moti Nandy’s classic novel ‘Bijolibalar Mukti’, I agreed to make an exception. It was a very topical subject. It touched on communal and caste issues and also on the rights and privileges of a 70-year-old Brahmin widow.”
Now, Raakhe di returns to Bangla cinema with Amar Boss, directed by Nandita Roy and Shiboprosad Mukherjee. Said the serene actress, “Given a choice, I would rather be away from the public eye comfortably ensconced in my farmhouse. But the co-directors Nandita and Shibo were adamant, and I really liked the script. We are likely to start shooting in January.”
Should we consider this a new beginning in Rakhee di’s career? “Nothing like that. I was always a reluctant actress. I still am,” she said as her laughter reverberated in the air.
