Mandakini, the yesteryear celebrated actress all set to make her come back after the hiatus of two decades. She’ll be seen in a music video ‘Maa O Maa’. The actress has done an incredible work and played some of the most beautiful characters. In a recent interview, the veteran actress spoke about a breastfeeding scene in her debut film Ram Teri Ganga Maili.
In a recent interaction with Hindustan Times, Mandakini spoke about the breastfeeding scene she had performed in Ram Teri Ganga Maili and performing a scene like that was taboo back in the day.
It wasn’t common to perform this kind of scene in then. She was quoted saying, “It was not a breastfeeding scene, it was shot in such a way that it could look like one. If I go on to explain how it was done, it would be too long (a story). The cleavage that is seen on screen, you see so much of it, it is all technically done. But the way skin show is done in today's times, that was nothing. We should not be even talking about it. It (her scene) was also a pure form. Nowadays, it is all about sexuality.”

She further added when asked about is she was aware that Raj Kapoor wanted to replace her with Padmini Kolhapure after shooting for around 45 days. She quipped, “I am not aware. I am only aware that everyone wanted to take up the role but Raj Kapoor wanted me because he wanted a fresh face. Not an established face, he has even said this. He said 'how can I make someone pure Ganga if they have an established image?' I don't think any such thing. I don't know.”
For the unversed, last year Padmini Kolhapure had claimed that the showman Raj Kapoor wanted her in the Ram Teri Ganga Maili instead of Mandakini.
The 59-year-old actress debuted with Raj Kapoor’s Ram Teri Ganga Maili in 1985 opposite Rajiv Kapoor and she was last seen in Zordaar in 1996. Now, she is making a comeback after 26-years with a music video ‘Maa O Maa’. This video also marks the debut of her son Rabbil Thakur.
