Tejaswini Kolhapure back in Bollywood with Anurag Kashyap's Ugly
Padmini Kolhapure's sister Tejaswini, who started off her acting career as the leading lady in Anurag Kashyap's debut directorial film Paanch, is returning in the 70mm space with the director’s next film Ugly in which she will play an alcoholic.
Paanch, that was about five members of a rock band involved in drugs, was considered a little ahead of its times. And though available online, the critically appreciated film never made it to the silver screen.
As a result, Tejaswini's Bollywood career took a plunge. She remained restricted to smaller projects and character roles. Tejaswani was last seen in Mani Ratnam's film Raavan.
Ugly will have Tejaswini playing an alcoholic woman who gets together with her former husband played by Ronit Roy when their child gets kidnapped.
According to an insider, Tejaswini will require to look alcoholic for real for the role. Tejaswini would have to get the body language and the slightly spaced-out bearing of her character right. Kashyap has full faith in Ronit and Tejaswini who will get ample time to get into character.
When we spoke to Ronit, he said that he was happy to have got a meaty role. “After Udaan, I haven't had good roles. My role in Karan Johar's Student Of The Year is a little more than a cameo. Ugly has me in the central role. It is a thriller set in a real time. I play a man caught in a crisis.”
