Seema Pahwa might be a name that not many are familiar with, but her face is certainly we would jump and say ‘ye to wo movie mein thi’ (she was in that other movie).
For those who might not be aware, Seema Pahwa is a veteran Indian actor who has acted in several critically and commercially successful movies like “Dum Laga Ke Haisha”, “Bareilly Ki Barfi” and “Shubh Mangal Saavdhan”.
Pahwa has been working in the entertainment industry since 1962 and has spent almost 52 years now working in various mediums from film, television and theatre.
She gained a name for herself after debuting in the role of Badki in the popular 1984 show “Hum Log” and has recently made her directorial debut.
The film “Ramprasad Ki Tehrvi”, directed by Pahwa has been getting rave reviews from critics and even the audience are admiring the well-written story and direction.
The film stars many known names like Supriya Pathak, Konkona Sen Sharma, Vinay Pathak, Vikrant Massey, Parambrata Chattopadhyay, Ninad Kamat and Seema Pahwa’s husband, Manoj Pahwa.
The film’s story actually arose from a personal experience as Pahwa explained, “During the death of my father, I experienced that people come to offer their condolences but you find it funny when they ask how and when it (demise) happened and this leads to funny situations, one-liners, etc.
“In the film, Amma (Pathak) keeps repeating the same story of the demise of her husband. In reality, I think one gets nervous during such times. We don’t know how to react, so we end up asking the same questions.”
In a recent interview with India Times though, Seema Pahwa was extremely truthful about what the conditions of the industry are and how it perceives actors who are not conventionally very good looking.
Here are some of her most impactful statements:
