Urmila Matondkar makes a comeback after nearly 10 years with 'Bewafa Beauty'

For every kid who grew up in the 90's - Urmila Matondkar was definitely the 'it' girl. The award winning actress and star was as fierce with her dance moves as she was with her roles and gave us some of the most memorable groovy anthems while growing up.

Be it her sizzling moves in 'Tanha Tanha' or the tightly choreographed routine in 'Kambakht Ishq' - which, at the time of its release, was wildly popular among youngsters - Urmila has seen the peak of stardom, especially during her collaborative work with Ram Gopal Varma.

After being on a hiatus from the big-screen for quite a while (10 years to be precise) - Urmila has made her official comeback with a brief one-song appearance on Irrfan Khan's upcoming comedy-drama, 'Blackmail.'

While everyone was pretty excited to see the beauty back on-screen again, many of her fans have been let down due to how under-whelming, plain and boring the song is. 

A number of people online have been complaining about the 'performance' not doing justice to her talent or providing her the kind of platform she deserved for her official return after so many years (which actually doesn't seem that wrong - looking at how mellow the song is compared to her past hits).

Check it out below:

Speaking in defense of Urmila's performance in the flick, director Abhinav Deo clarified his reasons of picking the star for the appearance:

“Firstly, Urmila is a massive star; she is not an item girl. We were not looking for an item girl for this song. We wanted a performer, someone who has tremendous value as a star in the audience's mind. We also wanted someone who has not come in front of the silver screen for a while now.”

Although the video does make you cringe on many parts, we're just glad to have her back in front of the camera once again. Hopefully this would be a start of her second innings in the world of movies. Chamma Chamma part 2 maybe?

If in case you are one of those people who have been appalled by the under-usage of the greatest female dancing sensation of our childhood, here's something to rekindle the good-old memories for you:
