It has been some time since Urmila Matondkar cast her magic on the big screen. Now, the Rangeela actress is all set to return in a special song for the Irrfan Khan-starrer, Raita. Directed by Abhinay Deo, the film will see Matondkar performing to a song choreographed by Rajitdev Easwardas, once assistant to Vaibhavi Merchant.
Speaking about the song, director Deo said, "We wanted a great performer with a diva-like aura and Urmila fit the bill. She has been extremely choosy about offers and we are excited that she agreed to be a part of our film. The song is set in a bar and is being choreographed by Rajitdev Easwardas, who has worked with Vaibhavi Merchant earlier."
Trade analyst Taran Adarsh also tweeted the news saying "Urmila Matondkar returns in a special song for #Raita, directed by Abhinay Deo. Produced by TSeries and RDP Motion Pictures.'

The actress is expected to start shooting for the song this weekend.
Matondkar has stayed away from the limelight since her marriage to Kashmiri businessman, Mohsin Akhtar Mir, in March. The actress was last seen on screen in the Marathi film, Ajoba (2013).
As for dance songs, the actress has already proven her worth with songs like 'Chamma Chamma' from China Gate (1998), 'Kambakht Ishq' from Pyaar Tune Kya Kiya (2001), and more famously 'Tanha Tanha' in Rangeela (1995). Her last appearance was also in a special song for Ram Gopal Varma's infamous 'Ram Gopal Varma Ki Aag (2007).
Hopefully, this time around the results will be different.
