MUMBAI: Her first film went unreleased, and she made her debut in a small role in the 2000 film “Fiza.” Since then, Isha Koppikar proved her range with a variety of roles that were comic (“Kya Kool Hain Hum”), dark (“Krishna Cottage”), romantic (“Ek Vivaah…Aisa Bhi”) and more.

She was last seen in the Marathi film “Maat” in 2013 and in Hindi in “Shabri” in 2011. After her marriage to restaurateur Timmy Narang, she went off movies and delivered a baby girl, Rianna, in 2014.

But now Koppikar (who had numerologically altered her name to Ishaa Koppikar and then to Eesha Koppikhar for some years) is back to her normal (and maiden) name, as she has signed a challenging role in “Saangli,” directed by debutant Ankur Narendra Bhatia. It will roll in October and release in early 2016.

Divyendu Sharma of “Chashme Baddoor” fame will play a key role in this movie that has Koppikar playing the mentor of a female spiritual leader shown aging from 30 to 80 years old.

Koppikar plans to balance motherhood and her career. Though this will be her Hindi comeback, she had done a south Indian film when her daughter was just three months old.

“Acting is my passion, and I will now look only at challenging roles. Motherhood is the most beautiful thing that can happen to a woman,” she says.

She plans to produce a film as well.
