Do you know what happens to most successful actresses of today fifteen years from now? Of course, they will be married and living a happy life but if they’re still in the industry, then they’re more likely to be only playing mother roles. Some of the examples are Radhika, Madhubala aka Madhoo, Ramya Krishnan and many more.
While most of these actresses may not be happy to see them playing mother roles, but filmmakers who cast them have strong reasons to defend their stance. Some feel by bringing back these actresses on screen, lot of nostalgia is added to the film and it helps audiences to connect with the character on a personal level.
Some feel that the experience of these actors come in handy to pull off strong mother roles because most of the times such parts come with lot of challenges and it’s not easy to anyone to execute it. Audiences will also have recall value when you cast a yesteryear actress in an important character role. It’s also important to give them roles that would make justice do their talent and their popularity.
