Mumbai: After winning critical acclaim for her roles in Dev D, Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster, Paan Singh Tomar, actress Mahie Gill says she is confused about her standing in Bollywood as new roles are not coming her way.
"I don't know if I have cemented my position in the industry. Like when I go out, industry people tell me I am good and an intelligent actress. But people only talk and don't give me work. So I fail to understand as to what they are telling is truth or not," said Mahie.
The 37-year-old actress, who essayed Paro in Dev D, a beghum in Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster and a small town wife in Paan Singh Tomar says she is happy that this genre too is seeing commercial success.
"I am confused. I don't know where I am in the industry today. But luckily films Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster, Paan Singh Tomar have started getting commercial success today," she said.
According to Mahie, she stumbled upon out-of-box roles by chance.
"People think I am an intelligent actress and they think of giving me those kinds of roles. I am not an intelligent actress... it just happened," she said.
Mahie feels that Anurag Kashyap-directed Dev D not only revived experimental cinema but also showed that it can be commercial successful.
