Reena Roy discussed her comeback to films in a recent interview. The veteran actor said that these days she is watching more South Indian films and that ‘their action and dance are unbelievable’. Reena also shared her memories of her time working at South Films.
The veteran actor has also expressed a desire to work on OTT projects. She also spoke about her experiences working in south Indian films and the types of films she now enjoys watching.

She claimed that when she worked in the south, others would not even ‘overtake’ the director’s car if it was in front of them, presumably out of respect.
“I want to do something similar to Baghban and Mother India. I’m watching more south Indian films that have been dubbed in Hindi these days. Their movement and dance are incredible. I like those movies… I’ve done a lot of work down south in the past. They were punctual, particular, and committed,” says her.

I’d like to work in regional films as well, from Punjabi to Tamil, Telugu, and everything in between,” “Reena stated.
