Daisy Shah would like to work in a biopic on Mumtaz

During the trailer launch of her forthcoming film Ramratan, Daisy said, “In terms of work, I would like to work on a biopic and some people that I have met have mentioned that my life, in some way, is similar to Mumtazji. She was also a dancer and then became an actress so in that way, I relate with her. So I think if I get the chance, I would like to work in a biopic on Mumtaz.”

Commenting about whether she would attract footfalls in the theater for the movie, as she plays the lead role in it, she said, “I think filmmaking is a team work and it’s a shared responsibility. If based on popularity, people will come to theaters because of my name, then I would be very happy but it isn’t about Daisy, it is about the director and the film and the co-actors. I think we have put in a lot of efforts to make a good film. I hope our efforts comes through when the audience will see the trailer. Of course, there is a responsibility on me and I will try my best and promote the film as much as possible.”
