The 37-year-old will feature in Sirphire along with actors Priyanshu Chatterjee and Gurleen Chopra. The film is produced by Gurpreet Singh Sidhu. “I have done Hindi films, acted in Telegu, Tamil, Gujarati and Nepali films as well. I have done all sorts of films, but I had to wait for long for the
right script to act in a Punjabi movie. When I read the script of this movie, I knew the hunt was over,” says Bedi, who hails from Chabewal in Hoshiarpur district and has seen a period of struggle in life in the past few years.
Monica Bedi gestures at the launch of her new music album, Ek Onkaar, in Mumbai. The actress is quite upbeat about starting her second innings in Bollywood.
The actor says she always wanted to be a part of the Punjabi film industry. “I’m a desi girl at heart. I’m emotionally connected with Punjab. I really do hope that people will like this family entertainer, which is a mix of comedy as well,” she says.
In the film, Bedi plays the character of a typical Punjabi girl, who is cultured, sober and religious. “I play Simran in the film, which portrays how our rich cultural heritage, which is instilled in us from the time we step into this world, gets overshadowed by superficial concepts of westernisation and the way it leads the youngsters to immoral activities... The movie depicts that how the lives of three Sirphires transforms for good after an incident,” says Bedi.
