Ashwini Apte has some offers coming in from different mediums, but the actress is in no hurry. Ashwini is presently getting accustomed to Pune, the city she has moved to some four months back. She is also looking forward to the release of Dhamdhum, a Marathi film directed by Devendra Pem, the man behind the record-breaking on-the-stage laugh-riot called All The Best. Rang Marathi talked to Ashwini Apte on her upcoming film Dhamdhum, the character she plays, and her career plans for the entertainment industry.

Dhamdhum is an out-and-out comedy of errors. It is full of interesting characters and equally interesting and funny situations. Devendra Sir has mastery in comedy and it reflects clearly in the film. I play a foreign-returned girl, who is looking for a suitable husband. She has problem speaking Marathi and that creates a lot of chaos and misunderstandings,” Ashwini informed.

Besides Ashwini Apte, Dhamdhum stars Bharat Jadhav, Siddharth Jadhav, Mrinmayi Deshpande, Sayaji Shinde, Vinay Apte among others. The film is expected to release in June this year.

Ashwini, who started her career with theatre, said, “I find films and theatre more challenging than television. TV wants more commitment from an actor, and now it’s quite difficult for me to give that much time from Pune. Therefore I want to focus my time and energy on good films only.”

Ashwini Apte will also be seen in director Amol Lahande’s upcoming Marathi political drama titled Vaadal, also starring Bharat Jadhav and Pooja Sawant.
