Kundan Shah’s P Se PM Tak is long dead and buried but actress Meenakshi Dixit is hoping to resurrect her career with Syed Ahmad Afzal’s Yeh Laal Rang, also featuring Randeep Hooda.
Based on real life incidents and set in Haryana, the film revolves around the blood mafia. Randeep’s on-screen love interest, Meenakshi, plays the role of a medical student, who he has been in love with her since they were kids.
Meenakshi admits that she was really nervous when she met Hooda during the script reading session.
“I’m from Lucknow so my Hindi is really good but I still started to fumble in his presence. That’s something that usually doesn’t happen with me. But Randeep was very supportive,” says the actress, who begins shooting for the film from today in Karnal.
“My look is really simple, no make-up at all. We want to keep it very real.” Adds the actress.
While Meenakshi is open to Bollywood offers she won’t stop doing films down South. “Right now I have two Tamil and one Kannada film,” she signs off.
