Like other Bollywood actresses, Padmini Kolhapure did not say many films in her career which were superhit. During an interview recently, the actress talked about the films of her career which she refused to do.
Padmini told during an interview with ETimes that she was approached for the role of Rekha in the film ‘Silsila’, then for the role of Sridevi in the film ‘Tohfa’ and for the role of Rati Agnihotri in the hit film ‘Ek Duje Ke Liye’. Was Padmini Kolhapuri said in this interview that you cannot sign every film that comes before you.
Not only this, in this interview, the actress told that she also turned down offers for some films which later proved to be huge hits, one of them was ‘Ram Teri Ganga Maili’. In this film, Mandakani gave very bold scenes. But, earlier this film was offered to Padmini Kolhapuri. When Padmini was asked if she had a grudge against not doing ‘Ram Teri Ganga Maili’, she said, ‘You cannot say yes to every film that is being offered to you. If a film is as successful as ‘Ram Teri Ganga Maili’, then you think you should have been in the film.
According to Padmini, even after the shooting of the film started, Raj Kapoor wanted to offer this film to him. She says, “Raj ji asked me to think again about the offer of the film, while he had finished the 45-day schedule with Mandakini.”
