Mahima Chaudhry was one of the most sought after actresses in the 90s after her terrific performance in Subhash Ghai’s Pardes. But a few films and a horrific accident later, the actress found herself in a huge mess, both personally and professionally.
In an exclusive interview with Bollywood Bubble, Mahima opened up about how she lost on to some films thanks to lobbying. The actress even shared that Ram Gopal Varma replaced her in Satya without even informing her. Read on to know the details.
Commenting on the practice of lobbying in the film industry and how it affected her, Mahima said, “Yeah sure, that’s very obvious and that happened a lot for sure. I don’t know if this was because of that but there were two films which I can clearly think were on these lines. When I was doing Pardes I was offered Satya. Mr Ram Gopal Varma was doing dubbing for his film and he met me and said I am doing this very small film which I have to wrap quickly. It’s about a gangster and there’s no part for a girl. And I heard the story while we used to sit for tea and I was like very good I want to do this.”
The Dhadkan actress went on to reveal, “Mr Ghai actually told me, ‘Itni badi picture (Pardes) ke baad tum ek chotisi picture karogi..isiliye maine tumhe launch kiya tha?’ I was like, ‘No no no. It’s very nice film’. So I agreed to do Satya. My manager did the formalities. Even in my interviews, I told everyone I am doing Satya. It’s my next film. And then they started then shoot. I was supposed to start the shoot in two days but they already started the shoot one day earlier with another actor who was in all his productions. And he didn’t even think it was important to call me or my manager that he changed his mind. And I had to hear it from the press. And that time the press can be very mean and they said, ‘Ohh you have been thrown out.’ And I was like yeah. I was humiliated and insulted. I took it badly.”
