Dor may have been the third film of her career, but for actor Gul Panag, the film, which released on this day 15 years ago, remains an important one in her filmography, as it was a proof of her appetite for quality cinema.
The actor essayed the part of Zeenat, who takes on the task of saving the life of her husband, who is on trial for murder.
“I hadn’t realised that it already has been 15 years. It is a milestone for more reasons for one. It set the space I would work in going forward. Not to say that it was not in my mind clearly what films I would be part of. But Dor was a reaffirmation that my choices were correct. Choosing a path which is true to what you believe in pays off at some level,” shares Panag, about the Nagesh Kukunoor-directed film.
It was also not the usual film that many female actors were doing at that time, and most definitely not someone who was just starting off her career. The 42-year-old says she wanted to steer clear from the run-of-the mill projects and is proud to have Dor in her resume.
