Iranian model and actress Mandana Karimi has not appeared in any film or show for over two years now. However the actor is soon going to make a comeback in a show titled The Casino. In a recent interview she has expressed her reaction to finding out that she was casted for the show.
She said, "I had tears in my eyes when I was offered 'The Casino'. I couldn't believe it! After two years break and not having any release, it was really hard for me to get work," said Mandana.
Mandana also recalled the time she asked Anurag Kashyap for help in difficult times.
"A year and a half ago I spoke to a dear friend of mine, Anurag Kashyap, about why I wasn't getting work and what I should do. He gave me the best advice -- 'work on your craft, take workshops, stop trying too hard, trust your journey, be honest and work hard not for money but for the love of art'. He gave me a few numbers of acting workshops where I met Saurabh Sachdeva (acting coach) and started training with him for four months. His classes changed me as a person and as an actor," she added.
She concluded saying, "It is also my first release since 'Kyaa Kool Hain Hum 3'. I was looking forward to the promotions and screening of the show, but I am glad that during these tough days when everyone is looking for new content, we are going to entertain the audience."
