Sharmila Tagore opens up on working in Gulmohar: I felt like a newcomer on the set

Sharmila Tagore is one most popular, loved, and evergreen actresses of all time. After over a decade, she is all set to return to films. She will star in Gulmohar, featuring Manoj Bajpayee, Amol Palekar, Suraj Sharma, and Simran Rishi Bagga in pivotal roles. Tagore was last seen in the 2010 film Break Ke Baad starring Deepika Padukone and Imran Khan. In an interview, the actress recently opened up about working in the movie Gulmohar.

She said she felt like a newcomer on the film's set and brought her own perception of the character. She added that working in a movie with no pressure was fun. "It was something different from my life now. It was liberating, more like a wonderful holiday. That's also because it is not my life anymore. My life right now is completely different. I'm not a working person anymore. I'm not going every day like everybody else to work, from one film to another. I worked in the film, and now, I have gone back to my own life," she added.

On their grandkids' reaction over Gulmohar, Sharmila Tagore said that Soha Ali Khan's daughter Inaaya had already congratulated him on the message for the film. At the same time, Taimur and Jeh are not allowed to see movies right now. However, she said that she assumed it would be different when they watched her onscreen. "Sara and Ibrahim and grown-up. They will watch and better like it," she concluded.

Talking about the film Gulmohar, the film is slated to release in August 2022 on the OTT platform Disney+ Hotstar and is directed by Rahul Chittella. It revolves around the multi-generation Batra family, who is all set to move out of their 34-year-old family home.
