Bollywood actor Mahie Gill made her Bollywood debut with Dev.D in 2009 where she played the role of the modern-day Paro from Devdas. The actor was then seen in Dabangg as a supporting actor. As reported by news agency PTI, she considers Dabangg a bad career choice for her. “After Dev D, I had won a lot of appreciation and awards. People wanted to sign me for films. But I did Dabangg and it backfired big time. The producers started to offer me small roles,” said Mahie. While the actor even received Filmfare Critics Award for Best Actress for her role in Dev D. “I felt very bad but I did not know what was happening. I believe in destiny a lot, I think this was meant to happen. I did regret doing the role but now I do not,” Mahie added.
Mahie had several other projects in between Dev D and Banangg like Gulaal, Pal Pal Dil Ke Ssaat and Aagey Se Right. Talking about joining commercial films such as Dabangg, Mahie Gill told PTI, “In my case, it backfired. My career stopped at that very point. Thanks to Tigmanshu Dhulia for offering me Saheb, Biwi Aur Gangster series.”
Mahie will now be seen in the third series of Saheb, Biwi Aur Gangster and talking about the same, the actor told PTI, “I am proud of this series. When we started with the first part, we did not think it will become a hit. The best about this franchise is that it is growing, the characters are the same but the story is in continuity. That is the beauty of this franchise.”
Directed by Tigmanshu Dhulia, Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster 3 is a crime drama with politics, lust, greed, revenge and betrayal involved. Sanjay Dutt will be playing the role of a gangster and Jimmy Sheirgill will play the role of Saheb. This film is a franchise of the 2011 release Saheb Biwi and Gangster. Both the earlier films received a positive response at the box office. It will hit the theatres on July 27, 2018.
