Whenever we talk about classics made in the Hindi film industry, director Sooraj Barjatya’s 1989 romantic-musical - Maine Pyar Kiya, always finds a mention. This Salman Khan and Bhagyashree starrer made the duo overnight stars, and has a loyal fan base even today. However, did you know that acclaimed actress Nadiya Moidu was initially approached to be a part of this much loved film? In an exclusive conversation with Pinkvilla recently, Moidu opened up on why she couldn’t do the film. 

“Well it’s actually a long story but I’ll give you the shorter version of it. The reason I didn’t do it at that point is because I had decided to get married. So when Rajshri Productions came with the subject and they wanted certain dates for it to be shot, I had already decided on the date of when we were going to get married, and that’s one of reasons why I didn’t do it,” recalls Nadiya, who is presently promoting her upcoming film - Wonder Women, which is directed by celebrated filmmaker, Anjali Menon.

In the past, Menon had directed the much appreciated Malayalam coming of age romantic comedy-drama - Bangalore Days, alongside many other popular movies. “I am very fortunate there has been a lot of love showered on the films that I have made, and every year when it comes to that time when you know it’s like the day of the release, it’s something very special that each of them gets celebrated. So it’s a blessing that I have, and we are very touched by that,” says Anjali.  

Wonder Women is headlined by Nadiya Moidu, Nithya Menen, Parvathy Thiruvothu, Padmapriya, Sayanora Phillip, Archana Padmini and Amruta Subhash.
