Leh: National award-winning actress Usha Jadhav is likely to sign films in Malayalam and Bengali.

Usha, who won the national award for her Marathi film 'Dhag', has got an offer for a Malayalam film from director Bijukumar Damodaran.

"I have got the offer but I am yet to sign it on dotted line. I have liked my part in the film I would sign the film soon. I want to explore all kind of cinema and this is my first step towards it. It is a challenge to do films in other languages," Usha told PTI on the sidelines of Ladakh International Film Festival (LIFF).

"Both are interesting projects. I know a bit of Bengali but I am alien to Malayalam language. But I am ready to learn it," she said.

Usha, who appeared in many TV commercials, started her career in films with Madhur Bhandarkar's 'Traffic Signal'. After that she did a small role in the Deepti Naval's directorial debut 'Do Paise Ki Dhoop, Chaar Aane Ki Baarish'.

She will be seen next as Kay Kay Menon's wife in a Hindi film titled 'Rahasya' and a Marathi film with director Anant Mahadevan's 'Uchalya' based on Laxman Gaikwad's poignant autobiography.

Usha says life has taken a 360 degree turn after she won the National award.

"People are taking me seriously. They are respecting me... They are taking my work seriously. I am getting a lot more offers for lead roles. But it gets difficult to say no to a film. I am looking to do meaningful roles but I would love to do a romantic film," she said.
