Seema Pahwa, an actor, and director, is happy to have dabbled with direction for the first time in her 54-year playing career. “Direction was particularly never on my mind but as I was associated with different aspects of filmmaking, I was surely aware of this facet too. I had written a couple of scripts and shared them with my director friends — particularly the story of Ramprasad ki Tehrvi (2022). My friends were quick to respond that as it was my brainchild so I should take the call and that’s how I donned the director’s hat for the first time. And, the icing on the cake was to have won awards for my very first project.” says the Bala (2019) and Gangubai Kathiawadi (2022) actor.

Bhumi Pednekar is one of the actresses in Bollywood with the most...

Pahwa started her career as a child artiste in 1968. “Since then, it has been acting always. How days passed by and today I am getting to work in the industry where all sorts of stories are being written and character artistes are no more sidelined. In fact, they are part of the story in a big way and the characters too are crafted with equal diligence.”

The Bareilly ki Barfi (2017) actress, who is married to actor Manoj Pahwa, says that they frequently talk about acting and projects. “Of course, we have long discussions and as my children too are in the same field, so such creative discourses are frequent in our house. But yes, when I took up direction all of them let me be. Manojji too asked me to play the new role the way I wished too.”

In her five-decade career, Pahwa has been in a large number of movies and television shows, and she undoubtedly has her favourite ones.

“I have played almost all type of roles and luckily got a chance to live the Navras on screen. Of late roles like Sheela in Gangubai… and Ganga Devi in Jamtara-2 (2022) gave me a larger canvas to explore that grey zone in my personality to its fullest. But, my favourite remains Ankhon Dekhi (2014).”

The honoree intends to direct once again. “Yes, I have a script ready and if all goes well, I’ll soon start my next directorial that too in Lucknow, like my earlier film. As this city is like my second home so my stories can be better told and developed here,” Pahwa concludes.
