Actress Sonali Bendre, who has been missing from the big screen for quite a while, says her filmmaker husband Goldie Behl wants her to return to the silver screen and says this is the right time for her to venture into movies.
“Goldie thinks that I should be acting now... he thinks the kind of cinema that is being made today is what I used to do when I was active in Bollywood. Playing loud characters was never my forte... my forte has always been enacting real roles, which is happening in the industry now,” Sonali says.
“He keeps telling me, ‘You know, I think you are making a mistake. You should be doing movies now, lot of interesting things are happening and you fit right in them’. Even my mother-in-law keeps telling me the same thing,” she adds. But Sonali makes it clear that movies are not on her cards right now.
“Well I agree the roles and the kind of scripts that are being made today are my type, but I have my own opinion. I follow my thinking and don’t get swayed so easily. I don’t think I’m ready for films because it takes a lot of commitment. I’m not ready for that kind of commitment,” she says.
The 35-year-old, who’s worked in films such as Sarfarosh and Zakhm, bid adieu to movies after marrying Behl in 2002.
