"Also the cricket season is here, so I am doing corporate shows and I will be associated with the IPL (Indian Premiere League (IPL) cricket tournament) in a way I haven`t been before. I can`t reveal much about it. But yes, IPL will be taking up the next month and a half of my life," said Mandira.

Speaking about her absence from Bollywood, Mandira said, "Filmmakers don`t know what to do with me. With my short hair, they don`t know whether to cast me as a man or woman. No, jokes apart, they either offer me item numbers or sister`s roles or a lead with some inconspicuous banner - none of which is what I want to do. So I am just waiting and keeping myself busy."
