For Mugdha Godse it was meant to be a nice evening out with friends at Samira boat show pre-launch party where she could just chill out, have fun and spend some nice time away from the hustle bustle of sets and film fraternity. After all, it was going to be some busy months ahead, what with shooting of Rohit Shetty directed All The Best (tentative title) and Madhur Bhandarkar's Jail coming together almost simultaneously.
Moreover, she knew that her 'ideal man' Sachin Tendulkar would be there at the party so she made sure that she joins the fun. She wasn't disappointed as in this late evening party last week, she actually found herself face to face with Sachin Tendulkar and ended up spending some quality time with him.
"He is a legend and I am not the first or the last person to be saying that. No wonder, when you actually come face to face with such a personality, you are bound to be excited and feel blessed. The same happened to me when I met Sachin", says Mugdha who was so thrilled about her meet with Sachin that as a star struck fan, she impromptu had her picture clicked with him.
Both being Maharashtrians worked in her favour as well. "Ya, we ended up chatting in Marathi and it was fun. It's the mother tongue of both of us and we hit off quite well. He is someone who truly stands as my 'ideal man'. Yes, he is quite reserved & proper and doesn't go beyond 'Hi-Hello' in his first few meetings with people. So it was me who was more talkative."
She didn't mind it much though. "Anjali is quite an extrovert and since she was around as well, I was very comfortable striking off a conversation. In fact I was with her for an even longer duration", details Mugdha.
Apparently, Anjali is a big time movie buff and is said to be a regular Friday moviegoer. She had seen Fashion so the conversation veered towards the movie and Mugdha's performance.
"But from the corner of my eye, I wanted to assess whether Sachin had seen the film or not! Next time when I meet him, I think I will directly ask him the question", quips Mugdha who has been recognized for her performance in Fashion by being nominated in almost all award functions this year.
Not many are aware that Mugdha and Sachin have shared screen space a few years back for a Pepsi commercial. While Sachin had played himself as a passenger, Mugdha was an airhostess.
"I will remind him about that as well. One never knows, maybe we may end up working together again", continues Mugdha who has been smiling ever since her meet.
