Gujarati film ‘Ani Maane’ in which she is playing female lead and she is also making her
debut as producer with this film. Teaser of the film is launched recently, and in an
exclusive interview, Shiju stated that Gujarati cinema has lot of scope to create your
own place in the industry. When the actress was being asked her what prompted her to become producer with Gujarati film, she said, “I decided to do Gujarati film because, earlier Gujarati movies weren’t doing well at the box-office, but since last 4-5 years, Gujarati cinema is growing really well. It’s an amazing time to work and produce a Gujarati film, because it’s a growing industry.
I feel, in Bollywood I would not have scope to produce a film because there is so much
of competition. But here in Gujarati movies, it gives opportunity for a new producer like
me to create his or her own space in the industry by creating some content driven films”.
Talking about the film, Shiju said, “It’s basically a Gujarati film but female lead of this
film is Punjabi, so it’s a first time that, there will be combination of Hindi and Gujarati
language in Gujarati movie. It’s a comedy film and I feel this film will bring revolution in

depict differences between these two generation and it is relevant because its showing
reality of today’s time.”, Shiju added. Talking about her other projects, she said, “I am doing a serial called ‘Santoshi Maa’ this time, apart from that I have many TV and web series offers.
