Popular item dancer Mumait Khan got a promotion as an artiste with ‘Operation Duryodhana’. Later, she turned a heroine and did a handful of heroine-oriented films. But none of the films could prove hits commercially. The reason behind this failure is that the directors chose to portray Mumait’s glamour and oomph but did not extract her acting talents.
Mumait too realised the reason behind the successive failures. However, Ramesh Raja prepared an excellent story, where Mumait got an opportunity to prove her acting talents, with less number of dances with revealing outfits. The final output came out in a neat way. The selection of other artistes like Sivabalaji and Shraddha Das, who have no glamour, became an advantage to highlight the lead character.
Nandini (Mumait Khan) is a popular novelist. She used to pen the novels with her sister’s name Mandakini (Saira Bhanu).
