Malishka Mendonca, popularly known as RJ Malishka, is all set to make her acting debut with Vidya Balan in her upcoming film Tumhari Sulu. Directed by Suresh Triveni, Maliskha will be playing a radio jockey in the film along with the Kahaani actress.
Interestingly, Malishka and Vidya’s connection goes back a long way. Speaking to a publication, the RJ narrates the good old days when she met the actress. “I first met Vidya at St Xavier’s College when I was a nobody and she was already heading exalted Performance Committees for Malhar. She is among the sweetest and most positive people I’ve met.”
She kept meeting Vidya every now and then following this. “I bumped into her repeatedly when she was at ad shoots and while I was still deciding which part of the media I wanted to join.”
She is delighted to have finally got a chance to do a project with her. "Life has come a full circle and now Vidya and I are back in each other’s lives. I was delighted to receive a call from Atul (Kasbekar) and Tanuj (Garg) to be a part of this beautiful, fun film. I’ve always wanted to act, but to be able to do a film with Vidya is a privilege,” she said
Tumhari Sulu revolves around Vidya's character; she plays a housewife who becomes an RJ at night. Earlier, Vidya played an RJ in Rajkumar Hirani’s Lage Raho Munna Bhai (2006) and interestingly, it was Malishka again who had trained her for the film.
