Mugdha Godse back with Madhur Bhandarkar

Most movie fans have almost forgotten Janet Sequeria, played by Mugdha Godse in the movie Fashion, directed by noted filmmaker Madhur Bhandarkar. Well the actress seems to be back in news after she has once again paired up with Madhur Bhandarkar in his upcoming movie Heroine. As a newcomer in the movie she had played her role (Meghna) perfectly of being a mentor to Priyanka Chopra in the movie.

The journey of this small town girl has been quite astounding. She started out with selling oil for Rs. 100 a day before participating in local beauty contests. Ultimately she went on to win the Gladrags Mega Model Contest in 2002, where she was also adjudged as ‘Miss Body Beautiful’.  She also participated in the biggest modeling contest in India, the Ponds Femina Miss India contest where she was a semi-finalist.

She was then casted by Mr. Bhandarkar, in the 2008 movie. She wowed us all with her amazing performance in the movie, as she mentored Meghna before being dumped by her, and later once again helped her resurrect her career.   She also compromised with a gay fashion designer played by Samir Soni, in the movie.

Her movies after that haven’t made any news. She went on to act in movies ‘All the best: Fun Begins’, ‘Jail’,  ‘ Help’ , ‘Gali Gali Chor Hai’ and ‘Will You Marry Me’ . Her movies ‘Afra Tafri’ and ‘Oh! God Sarre hai Fraud’ is under production.  She has also been a judge on Zee Marathi in the TV show ‘Marathi Paul Padate Pudhe’, besides working on Music videos, like ‘Le kar hum deewana dil’, ‘Jab chaye tera jadu’ along with Irfan Pathan.

Mugdha had been a bit choosy about the movies she wants to appear in. After completing ‘Fashion’ she was a competition unto herself. She had been choosing movies carefully where she feels she can market herself better as the remuneration always doesn’t count. She said that life has changed a lot and she loves it. It is different from when she was modeling, as she is now a recognized face and whenever she goes to a public place, people catch up and admire her work.

After a busy shooting schedule Mugdha is off to holidaying in Portugal and Spain.  We wish the hard working girl a happy vacation and all the best for her upcoming films.
