Manjari Fadnis, popularly known for her roles in ��Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na�۪ (2008), has a surprise for her audience. The actress is all geared up to play a Maharashtrian farmer�۪s wife in her upcoming movie ��Wah Taj�۪.

Fadnis recalls her journey in Bollywood, “I have learnt a lot through all these years. I got my first film just out of high school, so there was a lot to learn then. I hardly knew how to even present myself in meetings etc. I remember when I first went to audition for ‘Rok Sako Toh Rok Lo’, I was asked to go wash my face before the audition because of the bad makeup I had applied. The only thing I had faith in was my performance.”

The actress learnt it eventually that the key to the journey in Bollywood was passion. She adds, �۝I realised I was missing out on the fun of the process, it is only when I started enjoying the process and started acting for the passion of it, rather than to prove a point, was when I started feeling more liberated as a performer! Since then I have enjoyed my work much more than ever before and that’s when I believe I started improving as an actor.”

Specifically talking about her upcoming film, the actress said,�ʉ��The first narration of the movie blew my mind away and I jumped on the opportunity and grabbed the movie.”

��Wah Taj�۪ is all set to release on the 23rd��September. The film also stars Shreyas Talpade.
