While there is no news of her comeback to Hindi cinema, Vyjayanthimala says that she is happy pursuing Bharatanatyam, and that Rafi Night will see her perform too. But what's really keeping her on her toes is the birth of her grand-daughter. "I am a grandmother now and I am loving it," said the actress, who is also a keen sportsperson. The 75-year-old still plays golf and loves skiing.
A Sangeet Natak Akademi award winner, Vyjayanthimala said that her only regrets, though, have been about not being able to work on Bimal Roy's Bandini, Gulzar's Aandhi and with Guru Dutt. "I admired Indiraji (Gandhi) so much so that I got cold feet when the role was offered to me," says the legend, who paved the way for southern actresses to work in Bollywood.
In the conversation the actress fondly talked aboout the Raj Kapoor-Rajendra Kumar starrer Sangam that still holds a special place in her heart. "It was my first techni-colour film and the first to be shot overseas," she said.
