Padmini Kolhapure, one of the top actresses of the eighties, has worked in many superhit films. In his career, he turned down offers for some films which later turned out to be huge hits, one of them being ‘Ram Teri Ganga Maili’.
Padmini Kolhapure has recently told in an interview that this film was first offered to her and after her refusal, the role was given to Mandakini. Asked if they are sorry for not doing this film. He replied, ‘Now you cannot work in every film that is offered to you. If the film proves to be a hit at the box office like Ram Teri Ganga is dirty, then you think you should have been a part of this film too.
According to Padmini, Raj Kapoor knew why he had refused for this film. It is believed that Padmini left the film because there were many bold scenes in it. On this, Padmini said, “When Raj ji talked to me about this film, there were no bold scenes in it.” Padmini admitted that she was not comfortable doing on screen.
According to Padmini, even after the shooting of the film started, Raj Kapoor wanted to offer this film to him. She says, “Raj ji asked me to think again about the offer of the film, while he had finished the 45-day schedule with Mandakini.”
