Mahie and Randeep steam it up
Actress Mahie Gill who gave Sarat Chandra Chatterjee’s Paro from Devdas an all new interpretation in Anurag Kashyap’s Dev D, is set to take another classic character to a new height of passion.
Remember Meena Kumari as the neglected sexually repressed wife in Guru Dutt’s Sahib Bibi Aur Ghulam? In Dutt’s film, there was not even a hint of a sexual relationship between the wife and her man-friday played by Guru Dutt.

But in Tigmanshu Dhulia’s Sahib Bibi Aur Gangster, the repressed wife not only elopes with another man, she also has long lingering love-making scenes with her kidnapper played by Randeep Hooda.
Director Tigmanshu admits the sex content in his story is high. Says he, “At the time when Sahib Bibi Aur Ghulam was made, the idea of a zamindar’s wife committing adultery was unthinkable. Today a neglected wife will behave differently. Mahie and Randeep have many graphic love-making scenes.”
Mahie is understandably nervous. “When Paro in Dev D initiated love-making with her man, audiences were scandalized. I wonder how audiences will react.
My character is very different from Meena Kumariji in Sahib Bibi Aur Ghulam. In that film even when she rested her tired head on the other man’s shoulder it was spiritual gesture. But we are very physical in this film.”
