Spiritually enlightened Urmila wants to redo steamy 'Rangeela'

Written by: Staff

Lucknow, Apr 2 (UNI) Punkuj Parashar's Banaras A Mystic Love Story may well add a spiritual shade to sultry actor Urmila Matondkar's image but the Mumbai lasse still longs to redo the steamy ''Rangeela'' role that shot her to limelight.

In the City of Nawabs here today to promote her forthcoming film exclusively shot in the temple city, Urmila conceded that the 43-day shooting stint in Varanasi had ''spiritually enlightened'' her.

''Banaras has always enlightened famous personalities .... Kabir or Buddha ... and left an indellible stamp of spirituality on my body and soul,'' the Rangeela girl maintained.

Awestruck by the mysticism of Banaras, Urmila, however, was all shocked by the recent twin blast in the religious city which claimed 16 lives.

''It is a condemnable act to perpetrate such acts of terror in the oldest living city which has always sent the message of amity to the world,'' Urmila said.

When queried about redoing the steamy scenes of 'Rangeela' and 'Mast', Urmila said," I have always gone for variegated roles, be it sizzling stuff in 'Rangeela' or 'Chamma Chamma' in 'China Town' to creatively challenging roles in 'Maine Gandhi Ko Nahi Mara' and 'Pinjar'.

''I wish to do anything but with perfection, be it by redoing Mili of 'Rangeela', the sultry film star of 'Mast', serious roles of 'Pinjar' to starring in ribald comedies,'' said Urmila, hinting towards essaying the lead role in an out and out comedy in Punkuj Parashar's future venture.
