Today, the spotlight is on Pardes star Mahima Chaudhry, who in a frank conversation with Pinkvilla revealed how she bagged her first break, the horrific incident that left her emotionally broken, struggled, returned, and more. Lily.

When Mahima Chaudhry first entered Bollywood in 1997 with By facing Shah Rukh Khan, his simplicity and beauty quickly became the subject of discussion in the city. The actress then played a dual role in her next Daag: fire where she played a powerful role. But, while working on his next Dil Kya Karein, Mahima, who has been on a movie break since 2010, revealed that she had encountered a horrific accident that left her broken, more emotionally than physically. Today, the spotlight is on Mahima, who in a frank conversation with Pinkvilla, revealed how she bagged her first break, the horrific incident that left her emotionally broken, the difficulties, the comeback and more. To her:You caused a sensation when you made your debut. Why don’t you see yourself more often today? Is it a conscious decision?

Frankly, nothing comes my way. It is largely. I have dealt with events, live events, promotions, and of course, you have a child to raise and it takes a whole village to raise one, and I am a single parent (laughs).

You made a great start and also played incredible roles. Do you think somewhere that the industry has not done justice to your skills?

I think they gave me a lot, but yes, I had a deadlock period where I had to be absent from work. I had my lockout period right after my two movies, Pardes and Daag: fire where I had a double role, which was huge at the time and it was a successful film. Then I worked for Ajay Devgn and Kajol’s domestic production film Dil Kya Kare with Prakash Jha. During this time in Bengaluru, when I was on my way to the studio, I had a major accident where a truck hit my car, and the window of my car mostly hit my face. I thought I was dying, and at that time, no one even helped me get to the hospital. It was only after arriving at the hospital, much later, that my mother came, Ajay came and they went to chat. I got up and saw my face in the mirror and saw the horror. When they operated on me, they came out 67 pieces of glass.


What was the consequence of the accident?

I have tears in my eyes when I talk about it. I had to be with sewn staples and I had to be inside and not be exposed to the sun. My room was completely dark. I did not look at myself; there was no mirror. The lights that had UV rays couldn’t be there so the marks didn’t stay. There were a lot of movies I had lined up for me during this period, and I had to give up. I didn’t want people to know because back then people weren’t so supportive. If at that time I had discussed it and said that I had cut myself like that, they would have said …oh, iska toh chehra kharab ho gaya, let’s sign someone else.


Keep the accident secret to avoid judgments and societal pressures …

Today, everyone is much more advanced and receives a lot of support. I remember that nobody was allowed to be on the set because I was only healing. There was a song Yaad Piya Ki Aane Lagi that Neeta Lulla was designing and she said that Mahima you have to come back, I used to tremble. I had a shoot with Gautam Rajadhyaksha and my jaws were shaking. I didn’t want to do the song but it pushed me. So, we shot this and that’s how I started again by making long shots in my late films. When I slowly regained confidence, Akshay Kumar said why aren’t you part of Dhadkan and then slowly I started to pick up cameos and guest appearances, and these were hit. Yes, it looks like where did she go? I was hiding. I braved it and it was only because of my family.

You were a foreigner, was the welcoming industry successful for your first film? Did you also have to fight?

This fight that I didn’t have. My struggle started after my first film, posting a success, posting a jubilee of so many weeks.

If today you have to come back, what kind of roles would you like to play?

Something that suits me better, like when I saw Tumhari Sulu. I really loved Vidya Balan. Not that I could have done better, but I would still have loved to play something like that.

Where would we be without our moms? It’s time to appreciate everything she does for us, click here to write her a love letter. #Dear Mom
