People can only see me as a cop or a gangster: Mandira Bedi
The actor opens up about her passion for fitness and her upcoming films
Actor-anchor Mandira Bedi says she feels she's at her fittest ever. She finds it interesting that she is mostly offered the same kind of roles.
"Over the last two years, the roles offered to me are either of a gangster or of a cop. By the way, I'm pretty tough. So, it's nice. I am happy with my roles. The short hair and the whole fitness thing makes people see me only as a cop or a gangster," says Mandira.
The actor who made her debut in 1995's Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge has undergone a tremendous transformation over the years. From playing an aspiring journalist in the TV series Shanthi in the mid-nineties to donning the role of a gangster at the age of 45, she has come a long way.
"I have changed a lot over the years," says Mandira, who will be seen essaying the role of a police officer in the Tamil movie Adangathey, featuring GV Prakash and Surbhi in the lead.
All through her shooting schedules as well as other work, home commitments and even vacations, what brings her peace is her fitness session, she says. The actor admits that initially her goal was to get slim and trim, but ultimately it became about not just looking good, but feeling good too.
Her last release Vodka Diaries featured her as a poetess and in her upcoming movie, Saaho she plays a gangster.
