Dancing for the mujra track "Ranaji" in Anurag Kashyap's "Gulaal" was a pain for Mahie Gill. Literally! She was in severe pain due to a back injury, but she still shot for the
song with a smile on her face and wrapped up the shoot in eight hours flat.
That simply shows her dedication towards the profession she chose to adopt after her divorcee. Yes, Mahie has a bitter past.
She was married and settled in
Chandigarh. Although it was a love marriage, it was a turbulent relationship, which ultimately ended in divorce. The separation was anything but amicable.
Mahi went through a very difficult time after which she moved to Mumbai to try her luck in Hindi films but success didn't come easy. She had to struggle for almost three
years before she got her first break in Anurag Kashyap's Dev D.
Talking a tabloid she confirms, "I decided to move to Mumbai after I went through a low phase due to the separation. My biggest support system was my mother who
believed in me and supported me throughout.
Even though she was initially against my decision to shift to Mumbai as she was worried about me, she has always been my pillar especially after my father passed away
10 years ago. After moving to Mumbai I had no work and struggled for three and a half years. I did some theatre when I was a struggler."
Fortunately, her struggle and hard work paid off and she bagged Paro's role in Anurag Kashyap's Dev D followed by Gulaal and Aage Se Right opposite Shreyas Talpade
and Tigmanshu Dhulia's Paan Singh Tomar.
We wish pretty lady all the luck for her future.
