Urmila Matondkar returns to the movies, and we can't keep calm.

In fact, there's a lot of thrills for those who appreciate Marathi cinema.

Writer-producer Paritosh Painter, best known for penning the Hindi comedy film series Dhamaal, announced seven Marathi films to be directed by eminent directors and featuring noted actors.

Painter said he is thrilled to be backing content in his mother tongue, Marathi, PTI reported.

"Marathi is my mother tongue and I have always enjoyed Marathi cinema. I wanted to be a part of this amazing industry and I am extremely happy that this dream is coming true," Painter said.

 

Urmila was last seen in a song in the 2018 Irrfan starrer Blackmail, but we have not seen her in a full-fledged movie role since her 2014 film Ajoba.
Urmila said she fell in love with the script of Ti Me Navhech and didn't want to let go of the opportunity to be working on the movie.

 

Now, we get to see her share screen space with Shreyas Talpade.
'I loved the script that Paritosh narrated and it also stars an amazing talent like Shreyas. When the team approached me, I just couldn't resist,' Urmila said in a statement.
