Raid marks 85-year-old’s acting debut


In a surprising move, 85-year-old Lucknow woman, Pushpa Joshi, will make her acting debut as Saurabh Shukla’s mother in ‘Raid’. Ajay Devgn, who play the lead in the film, went out of the way to make Pushpa Joshi comfortable on the sets while shooting together. Ajay would even make sure that her scenes were given utmost priority and she would not have to wait on the sets for her shots. Talking about this unusual casting, director Raj Kumar Gupta says, “Pushpa Joshi was a darling on the sets. She is 85, but remembered her lines and was a bundle of energy.”
