Actress Priya Gill has been out of the movie scene for quite sometime now. We last saw her in J.P. Dutta's LOC where again she was lost amongst a horde of actors. So after an unsuccessful stint in Bollywood the actress is trying her hands at regional cinema. She is venturing into Bhojpuri films with Piya Tohe Se Naina Lage.
Speaking on the film Priya says, "It is a story of a young city educated girl who comes to the village. It's about a strong culture and is a family entertainer. Not only that but there is comedy in the film as well and that is what I was looking out for. This movie is something that every one can relate to. Actor Akhilesh Pandey is playing the lead role".
About the language barrier Priya confirms, "This is a Bhojpuri Hindi film and I understand the language well, as it is easy. There was no issue regarding language over here." Prior to this, her stint with regional cinema includes a Malayalam film Megham and a Punjabi film Jee Aaya Nu where she was paired opposite singer-actor Harbhajan Mann.
Piya Tohe Se Naina Lage will be produced by Rishi Prakash Mishra and directed by Balakrishna. It also stars Kashish Duggal, Akansha Soni, Vibhuti Tripahati, Geeta Kataria, Smita Mishra and Sambhavana Seth.
Priya accepts that she took a break from Bollywood but never called it quits. "I have signed a few interesting projects which I would like to announce in good time."
