Arthouse actress Nandita Das, who is back after her maternity break, is all set to wow the audience with her acting in a Tamil and Hindi venture this year.
Nandita, who was last seen on-screen in Onir's national award winning film I Am (2011), will feature in an untitled Tamil movie with director Seenu Ramaswamy.
She will also star in a Bollywood film helmed by debutante director Devashish Makhija's film.
"I am doing two films in May. It is the first time I am doing a film after my baby is born. I am doing one Tamil film by Seenu Ramaswamy and a Hindi film with Devashish Makhija who is a new director. Seema Biswas is also in that film. Both are very interesting stories with rural characters but there are no songs," Nandita said.
Talking about the storyline of both the films, Nandita said, "The Tamil film is about fishermen community. Like how this fisherman gets lost in sea and how they get caught or shot because they cross the border. While the Hindi film, is about Maoists, the struggle of villagers, the struggle between the CRPF and the Maoists. Both are very pertinent and contemporary subjects and I am happy to be part of it."
The 42-year-old is expected to start shooting for both the films next month.
It was in 2008 that Nandita turned director with Firaaq, a political thriller but since then she hasn't directed any film.
On her direction plans, she said, "I would love to direct a film. Firaaq was the most challenging experience in my life. But it was also fulfilling. I am looking for a good story."
