Not many people know this but Malishka had trained Vidya for her role in ‘Lage Raho Munnabhai’.
Ahead of her new film, Malishka spoke about her relationship with Vidya. She said:
“I first met Vidya at St. Xavier’s College when I was a noob and she was already heading exalted Performance Committees for Malhar. I have fond memories with her and she is among the sweetest and most positive people I’ve met. I bumped into her repeatedly when she was at ad shoots and I was still deciding which part of the media I wanted to join. Unbelievable how life comes a full circle. Vidya and I are back in each other’s lives. I was delighted to receive a call from Atul Kasbekar and Tanuj Garg to be a part of this beautiful fun film. I hope for a lifetime of brushes with cinema because I am a performer. I’ve always wanted to act and God knows that I lose no opportunity to be one in front of the people that know me or on stage. But to be able to do a film with an actor of such substance is a privilege. I cannot wait to rock and roll!”
The film produced by Bhushan Kumar, Tanuj Garg, Atul Kasbekar and Bhushan Kumar, Tanuj Garg, Atul Kasbekar, will release worldwide on December 1.
