Urmila Matondkar sure knows how to surprise the audience. Known to carry off her glam-doll roles with panache, she is now set to do a children's film. Titled Non Stop Fun, it is an adaptation of a Ruskin Bond story. It is based on two boys who run away from their boarding school in Mussourie. They travel through different cities and gain new experiences. It will be directed by ad film maker, Sunil Advani. Urmila plays a music teacher who the boys encounter during their journey. She even has a song, while she explains the nuances of music to the boys. Urmila believes that this role is similar to that of Julie Andrews in the Hollywood classic, The Sound of Music. The director wanted someone who apart from being a good actress can also dance. So she was the perfect choice. Apart from Urmila, the film also stars Saksham Kulkarni and has cameos by Jackie Shroff, Govinda, Satish Shah and Mukesh Tiwari.
