It’s the year of the comeback for the former glam women of the industry. After Raveena Tandon, Karisma Kapoor, Sridevi and Madhuri Dixit returned to the silver screen this year, actress Anita Raj has decided to follow suit. And reportedly, the actress has already finished shooting for her comeback venture, Char Din Ki Chandni, directed by Samir Karnik.
A source close to the actress revealed that Anita essays a queen in the film, which goes on floors in January 2012. Apparently, the actress, who last starred in the 2007 film Thodi Life Thoda Magic, wanted to wait for the right role to come along, claimed the source.
The source explained, “Anita was content looking after her husband Sunil Hingorani and son. She was in no rush to be in the limelight. But then, Samir convinced her to give her career another shot. ”
When contacted, Anita told Mumbai Mirror, “Yes, I will be seen on the silver-screen again, this January, after a long gap. My movie Char Din Ki Chandni is releasing in January.” When asked why she took this long to return to the silver screen, the actress replied, “Where had I disappeared? Nowhere! I was right here. Role bhi to honi chahiye. I made a comeback in 2007 in the film Thodi Life Thoda Magic. But, not many people watched it, so I decided to wait for the right role to come along.”
