Mahie Gill, an ‘up and coming’ actress in the Hindi film industry underwent something remarkable in recent times. Any kind of preparation is acceptable for the effective enactment of a character in a film. This is a slogan that numerous actors and actresses in the Hindi film fraternity abide by today.
However, Mahie transported her deference for this slogan to an entirely new and attention-grabbing level during the shooting of her forthcoming celluloid release which is Sahib, Biwi Aur Gangstar, directed by Tigmanshu Dhulia. What happened was that, during the filming of an important scene of this film, the script demanded that Mahie be inebriated. Mahie underwent exceeding uneasiness over this particular scene as she deemed that she couldn’t enact it realistically. Therefore, Mahie resolved to guzzle six shots of vodka prior to emerging on the set.
However, she didn’t realize that six shots would be a bit too much for her mind to tolerate. As the film’s crew kept providing her the shot mark, Mahie acted out the entire scene in a forceful fashion. Nevertheless, she had to be carried back to her room after the shooting as she was uncontrollably drunk.
Mahie Gill has established a niche for herself in the Hindi film community within a short time. She is widely recognized for her superlative enactment of the character of Paro in Dev D, which was a Hindi film directed by Anurag Kashyap, which attained colossal critical adulation. Dev D represented a contemporary celluloid version of the Bengali novella Devdas inscribed by the legendary Indian, Sarat Chattopadhyay. Mahie also procured the Critics’ Award for Best Actress in 2010 at the prestigious Filmfare ceremony. She commenced her career in Punjabi movies prior to penetrating the Hindi film industry with Dev D and achieving acclaim here.
Mahie is scheduled to emerge opposite the skillful actor, Irrfan Khan, in a Hindi movie titled, Paan Singh Tomar.
