18 years of Bhoot
‘Bhoot’ was a hit at the box office and the 47-year-old won accolades for her portrayal of a possessed woman. In 2012, Ram Gopal Varma made a sequel of the film, titled, ‘Bhoot Returns’ starring actor Manisha Koirala.
On the work front, Urmila was last seen in the 2008 film ‘EMI’. The actor-turned-politician was all set to star in a web series, but the project was held up due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
In an earlier interview, she said, “In April 2020, I was supposed to start work on a fabulous web series, but this (lockdown) happened, and then it got postponed. We didn’t know what’s happening, and it got further pushed. Right now, it’s stuck with one permission issue with a certain ministry. I’m just hoping that it will get cleared.”
