From playing the role of a politician to joining politics, Mahie Gill goes from reel to real
Mahie Gill is seen playing the character of Saraswati Devi in the recently released show, Raktanchal 2, which seems to be inspired by one of the most influential women leaders of the nation. With her proud and defiant nature, she is seen as one of the power-hungry adversaries of Purvanchal, who has set her eyes on the CM’s chair and is taking the male-dominated world by storm. Now, it seems, that she is so inspired by her role in the series, that she has decided to join politics and work for the country’s welfare. The 46-years old actress wants to raise issues related to girls and has taken it upon herself to serve the nation and her hometown.
Talking about this move, Mahie Gill said, “After playing such a powerful character onscreen in Raktanchal 2 and realising what it takes to be a woman in Indian politics, I figured that there’s more that I want to do for the society I live in. And being an insider, one can do a lot more and make a huge positive impact. I am thrilled to have taken such a big step.”
Inspired by true events of the early 90s when the entire dynamics of UP politics was about to change, Raktanchal 2 is a 9-episodic political-drama set in a backdrop of revenge, deceit and power games at the behest of its four main protagonists - Ramanand Rai (Ashish Vidyarthi), Vijay Singh (Kranti Prakash Jha), Waseem Khan (Nikitin Dheer) and Saraswati Devi (Mahie Gill). Directed by Ritam Srivastav, it also stars Karan Patel and Soundarya Sharma in pivotal roles.
