Meet Mahi Gill, the latest girl to join the ever-increasing brigade of Bollywood actresses. Mahi is cool, committed and very sweet. She is the new girl-next-door and her debut movie ‘Dev D‘ is getting pretty rave reviews, so her future is quite bright. See a video and a biography of Mahi Gill here.
Mahi plays the role of ‘Paro‘ in the modern version of Devadas. Dev D is quite unconventional in it’s content and is based on some of the most debatable topics concerning the society. Although, Mahi was quite afraid of facing the camera after she was offered the movie, she decided to give it a chance.
“Anurag Kashyap has been an acclaimed filmmaker and me having seen his earlier films, I didn’t have to think twice then before signing his Dev D.” Mahi tells us. “My Paro is bold and brash and is ready to fight back. She is a woman of this century” reveals Mahi.
As a biography, Mahi Gill is 21 years old. She is a Punjabi and her hometown is Chandigarh. She has already worked in a number of Punjabi movies before deciding to make a move to Bollywood. A holder of Masters in theatre from Punjab University, Mahi was spotted by Anurag in a party and was finalized there only.. like they found Arjun Rampal almost 7-8 years back.
She is a trained dancer and her mother was an aspiring actress back in her time. Even before Dev D was released, she was signed-up for Anurag’s next project Gullal.
“I have performed two mujra numbers in the film which is set for a March release. I also have UTV’s Aage Se Right opposite Shreyas Talpade and then I have Pan Singh Tomar with Irrfan Khan.”
Long way to go Mahi!
