It was quite eerie to play Maya in ‘Dear Maya’, says Manisha Koirala
Actress Manisha Koirala will be making a comeback on the big screen with the movie ‘Dear Maya’. As she has been avidly promoting her movie, we engaged in an exclusive chat with the actress where she candidly spoke about her character Maya Devi from the movie. When asked as to what attracted her to the character she said, “Basically, the script, the story and also my character. Because the character of Maya Devi has locked herself up in a lone bungalow for 20 years. Nor has she let a ray of Sunlight enter the house and nor any person. She owns two big dogs and she has got many birds. So, it was quite eerie yet pathetic. So, I got to portray this role of such a sad person. As an actor, we are hungry to portray something so bizarre as this role.” (Also Read: Dear Maya, life with all its contentment and bewitching charm is biding your time)
Well, her role certainly seems unconventional, and from the looks of is, quite interesting. We would love to see different shades of Maya unfolding on big screens, when the movie hits the theatres.
‘Dear Maya’ also stars two new actresses, Shreya Singh Chaudhary and Pakistani actress Madiha Imam in central roles. The movie is helmed by Sunaina Bhatnagar and produced by Shobhna Yadav and Sandeep Leyzell. The movie will be releasing in cinema halls on June 2, 2017.
