Urmila Matondkar is back on the silver screen to wow her fans after a long hiatus. For those who don’t know, the one major thing that happened during this break was the actress getting married to her Kashmiri boyfriend, Mohsin Akhtar Mir. But now that she’s back, we’re super excited to see her light up the screen in the latest number, Bewafa Beauty from Blackmail starring Irrfan Khan.

Reminiscing her film choices, Urmila recently told PTI in an interview:

Being a star means doing the kind of work you want to do. As stars we need to take risks and I was up for those challenges. I took risks and I did pay a price for it. I was made to answer because a Kaun can’t do business like a popcorn entertainer or a romantic film would do.

She further said:

I could have earned lots of crores by doing hundreds of more Rangeela that came my way. But I said no to all that and others did it and made money. I had moved to Kaun or Pinjar. Even in commercial space I was offered exciting and different parts like Dillagi. There was no repetition in my work.

At the beginning of her career the actress won us over with massy hits like Rangeela and Judaai, and also the critics with films such as Bhoot, Kaun and Pinjar. But this shift didn’t just happen, it was a conscious decision that she made early on in her career and still stands by it. The actress, unlike most stars didn’t cave in to the risks that came with this decision.

Well, we hope the actress comes across roles that interest and intrigue her to do more films.

Until then, enjoy her song from Blackmail:
