Last seen in Aisha, Ira Dubey plays a modern Indian girl in Dilliwaali Zaalim Girlfriend, which released on Friday 20 March. When quizzed about the long gap, “My main priority as an actor is to do some different sort of variety in the kind of work that I do. I don’t want to get typecast. It is very easy to get typecast in Bollywood. After Aisha, I got so many offers – kind of glamorous, best friends, loud characters. But they weren’t very exciting for me. I also was doing plenty of theatre that time as I was not getting anything exciting.”
Produced by Manjeet Kaur and Tarnpreet Singh, Dilliwaali Zaalim Girlfriend also stars Divyendu Sharma, Jackie Shroff and Pradhuman Singh. The film is directed by Japinder Kaur, who was recently not happy that the film was given a U/A certificate by the censor board after 63 mutes.
