Ever selective Shefali Shah, who has barely worked in 7-8 films in
her decade plus career, would be seen on the silver screen again
after a brief hiatus.
She would be enacting the role of Kasturba Gandhi in next
Friday's release Gandhi My Father. While the film looks like
an outright winner with Darshan Zariwala [who plays Gandhi] and
Akshaye Khanna [as Harilal, Gandhi's son] said to have come up with
award winning performances, presence of Shefali Shah and Bhumika
Chawla [as Gulab, Harilal's wife] only adds on to the film's
dignity and grace.
Shefali was noticed first in Ram Gopal Varma's Rangeela
where she did a spoof on Sridevi as a pampered actress. Later she
made a rocking impact in Satya which was followed by a brief
appearance in Mohabbatein. A year later she got
international acclaim for Monsoon Wedding but thereafter
went on a 4 years sabbatical. It was Waqt which brought her
back on the big screen as Big B's wife followed by 15 Park
A year and
a half after the release of 15 Park Avenue, Shefali is now
promising yet another touching performance in Gandhi My
Father. She has also worked in The Last Lear which is
currently under production.
