Two years after Neena Gupta took to social media asking for work, another senior actress, Nafisa Ali Sodhi, has taken the same route.
Nafisa, who is known for her roles in Life In A Metro and Major Saab, wrote on Instagram that she would “like an elegant role to portray in Indian cinema.”
Sharing a stunning black-and-white picture, she said that she is looking for a perfect script, and at the same time mentioned that she will not be dictated to.
“I am Nafisa Ali Sodhi and I would like an elegant role to portray in Indian cinema. So looking for a perfect script as a senior actor, I need to work to express my emotions. I will not be dictated to. May God give each of us the strength to follow our dreams,” wrote Nafisa Ali.
“Stop targeting young women in India. Stop religious intolerance. Stop dictating to Indians. India is unique and we must protect our secular fabric. Stop this divide and rule. Focus on a better world,” added the senior actress.
Nafisa Ali was diagnosed with Stage 3 cancer in 2018, but she is not ready to bow down and is ready to return to films.
Nafisa made her debut as a young actress in Shashi Kapoor’s Junoon in 1979. Since then, she has worked in numerous Bollywood films, including Yamla Pagla Deewana, Life In A Metro and Major Saab. She was last seen on the big screen in Sahib, Biwi Aur Gangster 3.
