For an actress whose best claim to fame is a bold role in Anurag Kashyap’s cult movie Dev D, Mahie Gill is extremely shy. But that role has taken her places.
She credits most of her film offers to her role in the movie. She presently has three movies in her kitty including one with Naseeruddin Shah, one with Irfan Khan and one in which she plays a role inspired by Meena Kumari, quite a handful for somebody who does not come from a conventional film background.
On asked what lengths she would go for a scene, pat comes her reply that as long as she is comfortable with the director and has faith in the script, she does not have any limit to boldness. As of men, she says it is their intelligence which turns her on the most.
