Did you know Padmini Kolhapure rejected ‘Ram Teri Ganga Maili’ because of a ‘kissing’ scene? | Hindi Movie News – Bollywood – Times of India


One of the most popular and versatile actresses in the Hindi film industry Padmini Kolhapure has ruled the hearts of fans with her impeccable performances in movies like, ‘Prem Rog, ‘Souten’, ‘Woh 7 din’, ‘Suhaagan’ and several others. She had begun her career in the ‘70s and is still active in movies. Her acting prowess has been appreciated by critics and audiences alike since her earliest days in acting. She was last seen in the 2019 historical drama ‘Panipat’, directed by Ashutosh Gowarikar. She also appeared in ‘Prawaas’, a Marathi film, in 2020. Now, recently, in an interview, the veteran actor said that she has rejected films that eventually went to Rekha, Sridevi, and Rati Agnihotri in her career, but she has some regrets about turning down ‘Ram Teri Ganga Maili‘. Directed by Raj Kapoor and starring Rajiv Kapoor in the lead role, the film was a box office success. Padmini said that she was apprehensive about the bold scene in the film, which is why she passed on the opportunity. Mandakini was eventually cast in the role, but according to Padmini, Raj Kapoor was willing to replace her even after 45 days of shooting. She further added, ‘You can’t grab every film that comes your way, If a film does well to the magnitude that RTGM did, you do feel that you should have been a part of it. RTGM did astoundingly well, Mandakini did a good job, the songs were beautiful. But then, Raj Ji knew my inhibitions. He exactly knew why I wasn’t doing it,’. Meanwhile, the actress recently had a reason to celebrate as her son Priyaank Sharma tied the knot with Shaza Morani. She’d traveled to the Maldives with their families for the first leg of the wedding celebrations, which continued back in India after they returned.
