Is Mrunal Thakur Eyeing For Bollywood Now?

According to a source, Mrunal Thakur has received several offers from the Telugu film industry, but she has not yet committed to any of them. Instead, she has signed a significant project with renowned Bollywood filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali. Thakur is banking on this high-profile venture to elevate her career in 2024.

After two back-to-back hits ‘Sita Ramam’ and ‘Hi Nanna’ and awaiting the release of her third film ‘Family Star’ this week, pretty actress Mrunal Thakur has shied away from signing new Telugu films, despite a few offers knocking on her door.

Mrunal Thakur In Bollywood?

While Mrunal Thakur has showcased her talent in Hindi films like “Jersey” and “Super 30,” she has struggled to leave a lasting impression in Bollywood. However, with her focus now set on revitalizing her career in the Hindi film industry, she eagerly awaited a promising opportunity. Now that she has secured one, she is determined to leverage it to ascend the ranks within Bollywood circles.

Mrunal Thakur, previously criticized in Bollywood for not receiving roles commensurate with her talent, expressed contentment with her work in Tollywood, where each role offers depth and substance. Unlike Bollywood, where female characters often serve as mere romantic interests, Thakur found satisfaction in portraying characters with rich backstories and strong personas.

Tollywood Vs Bollywood

However, recent indications suggest she may be exploring opportunities in Bollywood, following the path of another actress who transitioned from Telugu cinema to Bollywood. Despite facing challenges such as casting couch allegations, Thakur’s trajectory in Bollywood remains uncertain, raising questions about whether she will prioritize offers from the Hindi film industry over her Tollywood roots.

Coming back to Tollywood, she has proved her acting prowess in ‘Sita Ramam’ and ‘Hi Nanna’ and matched acting stories with talented actors like Dulquer Salmaan and Nani respectively. “She has to do more glam-centric roles in Tollywood to reach the top. Otherwise, she will be relegated to roles with substance, and it would limit her reach,” adds the source. He also cites the success of actresses like Samantha, Kajal, Tamaannah, and Shruti Haasan, who joined the big league in Tollywood by playing glam divas onscreen. Is Mrunal Thakur listening?
