Whoever said “Never judge a book by its cover” is absolutely correct in case of Mahi Gill. Mahi Gill, the modern day “Paro” of Dev D is nothing like her on-screen persona in real life. She comprises of grace, beauty, boldness and above all power house acting. Mahi Gill is not just a pretty face but a powerful actor. She hails from Chandigarh, Punjab and has had prior acting experience in Punjabi movies before venturing into Bollywood movies.
Mahi hails from a very orthodox family but the girl had greater visions and aspirations. She found her mother a great support system and with her encouragement Mahi went ahead to pursue acting as her career. Her first movie was a Punjabi movie called Hawayein. Apart from acting in Punjabi movies, she has also pursued theater.
Mahi Gill got her first break in a Punjabi movie titled Hawayein. Though the movie did not turn out to be a super hit the critics liked her performance. Mahi has unconventional looks backed with a strong personality. This landed her the main protagonist’s role in Anurag Basu’s modern adaptation Devdas called DevD. She portrayed the famous character of Paro and did complete justice to her role. The character of Paro with grey shades was beautifully enacted by Mahi. The woman has a hot personality which cannot go unnoticed. Mahi did miniscule roles in Dabangg, Aagey Se Right and did a n item number in Mirch.
Unlike her on screen avatar Mahi gill is just the opposite in her real life. As opposed to her bold avatars on screen she is really shy in real life. She is simple and likes to keep her life private. Her next movie after Mirch was Saheb, Biwi Aur gangster where Mahi’s hot personality became a rage. The movie earned her rave reviews. Later she bagged a role in Tigmanshu Dhulia’s Paan Singh Tomar, which was a critically acclaimed movie and a commercial hit as well. She also starred in Dabangg 2. Her film Not a Love Story was labelled controversial owing to certain scenes.
Mahi is a casual with her dressing style. She maintains a hot image only on screen where she wears revealing sarees and seductive drapes but in real life she keeps it simple by donning a casual tee with jeans. None of her friends judge her as she is a sweet person in rea. Mahi has kept her relationship a mystery but sources say her knight in shining armor is someone from Goa. His name has not been revealed to the media yet.
Mahi Gill’s hot avatar in Sahib Biwi Aur gangster earned her a nomination for Best Actress in the Filmfare Awards. She has also acted in movies like Gulaal and Khoya Khoya Chand. We hope Mahi Gill gets ample opportunities to showcase her talent and prosper in life.
