It is rightly said that age is just a number and it is proved by 85-years-old Pushpa Joshi of Lucknow. At this age, Pushpa is all set to mark her Bollywood debut in Ajay Devgn starer ‘Raid’
Raid has been extensively shot in Lucknow and the 85-years-old is all excited to take a new challenge in life. Pushpa Joshi will be seen essaying the role of Saurabh Shukla’s mother in the film ‘Raid’.
It has been quoted that Ajay Devgn went out of the way to make Pusha Joshi comfortable on the sets. Her scenes were given utmost priority and she was not made to wait much for her shoots.
Ajay also took care of her schedules making it easier for her to work. Not just him, but the entire team of the film ‘Raid’ ensures a hassle free shoot for Pushpa Joshi.
Director Raj Kumar Gupta was quoted saying, “Pushpa Joshi was a darling on the set. Everyone wanted to be around her because she is charming, graceful and has a great sense of humor.”
“She is 85 – I was really flabbergasted by her professionalism. She remembered her lines; she was always smiling and was a bundle of energy. For me she is also a living example – if you want to do something from heart age is just a number. It was an absolute pleasure working with her and I wish her good health and good luck,” he added.
It’s never too late to make a debut in the field of acting; and Pushpa Joshi from Lucknow proves it. She certainly is an inspiration for aspiring actors from the city.
