Not many leading ladies of Madhur Bhandarkar films are lucky enough to be repeated by the filmmaker. Though Konkona Sen Sharma remains his personal favorite (she has starred in ‘Page 3’,‘Traffic Signal’ and a one scene appearance in ‘Fashion’),others like Tabu (Chandni Bar),Bipasha Basu (Corporate) and Neetu Chandra (Traffic Signal) haven’t been as lucky. However,Mugdha Godse has made it to the elite list after being signed on to play the main female lead in ‘Jail’.

Confirms Madhur Bhandarkar who would be kick starting the film’s shoot in February,”Yes,Mugha Godse has been signed for Jail. She really impressed me in Fashion and it was only right that I bring her in as a female lead in my next film. She is paired opposite Neil Nitin Mukesh.”

Mugdha is ecstatic too to be a part of ‘Jail’ and has started preparing for the role. “I am in an even better position now with ‘Jail’ since from ‘one of the leads’ in ‘Fashion’,I would now be playing a ‘sole lead’. Everyone wants to see such progression and I am glad this is happening in quick time. Madhur sir has seldom repeated his heroines due to which I am even more excited that he has chosen to rope me in for the movie. It just shows that if you do hard work and demonstrate good enough potential,you would be noticed.”

Mugha has a 3 film deal with Percept Picture Company and ‘Jail’ would kick start her engagement with the production house. Incidentally,the film is a co-production of Percept Picture Company and Bhandarkar Entertainment.

Since Mugdha was noticed for her glamour quotient as well as acting potential in Fashion,how would she be presented in ‘Jail’? Replies Madhur,”She would be having a semi-glam look in the film. That’s all I can say for now because anything more would only end up revealing the plot. At the moment,it would just suffice to say that Mugdha is not there in the film just for glamour value but she is also critical to the film’s plot.”

For Mugdha,it’s a great start for things to follow because she has been paired with one of the most promising newcomers around,Neil Nitin Mukesh. “I am looking forward to shooting with Neil. It’s nice to have upcoming youngsters around and both Neil and I are amongst the new breed. We should make for a good fresh pair”,smiles Mugdha.
