Yes, you read that right! Talking about the same to PTI, Shefali revealed, “When Zoya offered me the film she said ‘I want you but it is a mother’s role’. I read the script and told my husband that it is one of the best scripts I have read and the role is fantastic. He asked me what the problem was and when I told him he advised me to take it up. There were apprehensions as Priyanka and Ranveer are closer to my age. But as my character was well-written, I couldn’t say no.”
Earlier, speaking to Times of India, the ace actress had said, “I was typecast in a mother’s role very early in life. I didn’t even reach a certain age. I was 20. I did a show where I played the mother of a 15-year-old, I was 20 years old when I played a mom of 45. And then, when I was around 28-30, I played mother to Akshay Kumar. So I got typecast very early, if I didn’t even have to reach a certain age point.”
On the work front, Shefali received immense appreciation for her brilliant performance in web series, ‘Delhi Crime’. She also garnered accolades for her role in the recently released anthology, ‘Ajeeb Daastaans’ on an OTT platform.
Next, she will be seen in a Alia Bhatt’s maiden production titled, ‘Darlings’ alongside the ‘Raazi’ actress.
