Veteran actress Raakhee Gulzar is her super-talented daughter Meghna Gulzar’s biggest critic. This is one parent who won’t indulge in futile flattery.
Raakheeji refused to watch the film in any of the previews that were held for Meghna’s family and friends,
Ever the matter-of-fact Diva, Raakheeji said, “I wanted to see the film on release with the public. They are the ones who are the most honest and unforgiving judge of films. I also took along members of my staff to see their reaction.”
What the immortal actress , whose beauty and talent gave us classics like Sharmilee, Daag, Kabhi Kabhie and Tapasya saw in the theatre overwhelmed her.
Says Raakheeji, “There were so many youngsters in the theatre all watching in rapt attention. What Bosky(pet name for Meghna Gulzar) has achieved in Chhapaak is not easy to do.It’s a true story , faithful to facts but still so cinematic. I am very proud of my daughter.”
