In an exclusive conversation with jagran.com, Mansi shared many interesting anecdotes related to her career in film and television as well as her real life.
On the question of the frequent parties in the glamor industry, Mansi says that “I only go to those parties where I have friends or people who really mean a lot to me. My first focus is on my daughter. Like I get time from shoots I prefer to spend time with my daughter at home rather than party.If I go outside Mumbai for outdoor shoots then you will not believe that I keep counting the days how many more days Have to spend outside Mumbai i.e. outside the house.”
On another question related to the party, Mansi says, “Yes, I have done this many times when I have made an excuse of sudden ill health to leave the party early.” Mansi laughs and says that “I often leave the party on the pretext of headache or stomach ache to leave early.”
On the question related to the outfit, Mansi says, “Yes, I repeat my outfits in the party. How is it possible to wear an outfit only once and keep it on the side, I can’t think of doing that.” Mansi shares a funny anecdote related to the outfit, says, I have borrowed dresses from my friends many times to wear them in events, functions and parties and the funniest thing is that after borrowing the dress from friends, I have given them many clothes. I forget to return the bar. Then my friends call and remind me to return the dress.”
On the question related to films, Mansi says that “Recently I have done ‘Dear Father’ Gujarati film. I have signed some more Gujarati films now because now the regional industry is growing and good content has started to be created in Gujarati industry as well. It’s done and big stars are also making Gujarati films.”
Mansi ends her talk by saying that “It is not at all that if I am doing Gujarati films then I will not work in Bollywood films. I am trying to work in Hindi films as well. I give auditions for Hindi films also.” Be it Gujarati or Hindi, I only see how much I deserve as an actor in that project, then I sign something. It is not with me that there is much to do or to appear on the screen. I should do all the projects. I like to work in short but good work and good character projects.”
