Actress Priya Gill has been out of the movie scene for quite
sometime now. We last saw her in J.P. Dutta's LOC where
again she was lost amongst a horde of actors. So after an
unsuccessful stint in Bollywood the actress is trying her hands at
regional cinema. She is venturing into Bhojpuri films with Piya
Tohe Se Naina Lage.
Speaking on the film Priya says, "It is a story of a young city
educated girl who comes to the village. It's about a strong culture
and is a family entertainer. Not only that but there is comedy in
the film as well and that is what I was looking out for. This movie
is something that every one can relate to. Actor Akhilesh Pandey is
playing the lead role".
About the language barrier Priya confirms, "This is a Bhojpuri
Hindi film and I understand the language well, as it is easy. There
was no issue regarding language over here." Prior to this, her
stint with regional cinema includes a Malayalam film
Megham and a Punjabi film Jee Aaya Nu where she
was paired opposite singer-actor Harbhajan Mann.
Piya Tohe Se Naina Lage will be produced by Rishi
Prakash Mishra and directed by Balakrishna. It also stars Kashish
Duggal, Akansha Soni, Vibhuti Tripahati, Geeta Kataria, Smita
Mishra and Sambhavana Seth.
Priya accepts that she took a break from Bollywood but never
called it quits. "I have signed a few interesting projects which I
would like to announce in good time."
