Incidentally, Shefali made her big-screen debut in Aamir Khan’s Rangeela (1995), playing the role of Mala Malhotra in Ram Gopal Varma hit. But she quit the film after just four days of shooting as she felt her role was very different from what was briefed to her.
In the same interview, her Jalsa co-star Vidya asked her further, if she has worked with Aamir ever since, to which Shefali said no. Asked if she thinks Aamir is aware of her old crush on him, Shefali said, “I don’t know”.
Shefali and Vidya’s recent release Jalsa is an investigation thriller by filmmaker Suresh Triveni. It streamed on Amazon Prime Video on March 18, 2022.
