In 'Mitr', Shobhana played a bored housewife, who sought solace
in her unseen confidant, her internet pal. That person turns out to
be none other than her husband, who ignores her at home. Shobhana
went on to win her second National Award for this role in the movie
directed by Revathy. Now, co-incidentally, the 42-year-old actor is
going to marry her real-life internet pal, Rahul Mehra, an
agriculturist from Jharkhand.
A source close to the couple confirms this, saying, "They
started chatting with each other online, and then planned to meet
each other. Their friendship grew into love, and now they are all
set to marry each other."
Shobhana was last seen in 'Apna Aasmaan'. Her next project is
Hollywood filmmaker, Zakhary Coffin's 'Bhopal Gas Tragedy', in
which her co-star is Irrfan Khan. Her first National Award was for
her role in 'Manichitharathazu', which has now been remade in
Hindi, and is titled 'Bhool Bhulaiyaa', and in which Vidya Balan
plays the same role.
