Actress Urmila Matondkar known for her superlative performances in films like 'Satya', 'Ek Haseena Thi', 'Bhoot', 'Rangeela', 'Kaun' and 'Pinjar' to name a few, is all set to make a grand comeback with her digital debut in a thriller titled ‘Tiwari’ directed by Saurabh Varma and produced by Content Engineers. The actress plays the titular role in the web series set in a small town and has an emotional mother-daughter story at the core of it.
Talking about the show, Urmila says that the project offered her characters and a story arc that is challenging as a performer and things that I haven’t attempted so far. "Written and created by a team of young writers, the team managed to keep me hooked till the end while narrating it. What I liked the most in the story is that at the core, it’s an emotional mother-daughter story but at the same time it has everything from drama to action to some thrilling twists and turns. I can’t wait to start shooting," she says.
The makers recently released a poster in which she can be seen in a very rugged avtaar. The thriller has the actress doing gritty action for which she has been training rigorously for last six months.
