She was last seen in Tamil cinema in Simbu 2004 blockbuster 'Manmadhan'. Bollywood actress Mandira Bedi is now all set to be seen next in GV Prakash's upcoming 'Adangathey' after a 13 year hiatus.
Mandira, who will be essaying the role of a cop in her upcoming Tamil film Adangathey, says she went through a lot of rigorous and meticulous preparations to get into the skin of her character. The actress spent time learning Tamil, observing real cops and watching Tamil cop films "to ensure perfection" in her character. It must be noted that the popular Bollywood lady has already essayed the role of a cop in the Anil Kapoor's TV-series 24.
After mostly working in Hindi films and TV shows like Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge, Shanti and Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi, learning Tamil was a tough experience for Mandira. According to a source, Mandira wanted to give her best to the character and employed a Tamil tutor to get her there in terms of language. She picked up the dialect in a mere two weeks and learned many of the basic Tamil words and phrases as well. The ease with which Mandira delivered her Tamil dialogues in the trailer of the Shanmugam Muthusamy-directed film has surprised the viewers.
Reportedly in its post-production stages now, Adangathey will feature GV Prakash in an action avatar along side Surabhi playing the female lead and, Sarathkumar and Thambi Ramaiah in vital roles under the Sri Green Productions banner.
