5 November,2014:Â Actress Mona Singh who shot to fame with the hit television series Jassi Jaissi Koi Nahin and then made her film debut with the 2009 hit 3 Idiots, will be back on the big screen after two years. She will play Adil Hussain’s wife, an aggressive and domineering character in Dr.Chandrapraksh Dwivedi’s Zed Plus, a political satire set in the Northern heartland.
Mona played Kareena Kapoor’s sister, who delivers a baby in one of the film’s famous moments, in 3 Idiots. She explains her absence from the big screen saying that she was flooded by similar roles after that and had to turn them down.
“I can’t play a pregnant woman in all the films, can I? Unlike other actors, I won’t abandon TV for films. I try to balance both. TV gave me my identity and made me a household name,” asserts the actress who to date is remembered for her turn as Jassi, the desi Ugly Betty.
Dwivedi who directed the tele-epic Chanakya (1991) and the Urmila Matondkar Manoj Bajpai period drama Pinjar (2003), took over two years to write this script and Mona was told to stick to it, strictly. “No improvisations, that’s how he functions,” says the actress.
Despite not being visible on the big screen, Mona made news last year when an MMS video allegedly showing her in the nude went viral. The actress denied any involvement with it saying that her face was morphed on someone else’s body.
“That is a closed chapter today, I’m thankful that everyone acted maturedly,” she says tersely, refusing to discuss it further.
She’s guarded about her personal life and won’t entertain any questions about former beau Vidyut Jammwal.
“I haven’t commented on this before, so why would I do that now?” she asks. “I will only talk about the man in my life when I decide to marry someone. Don’t worry, you’ll be invited!”
