Monalisa, who rose to fame with controversial reality show Bigg Boss, has reportedly bagged her first TV show. If reports are to be believed she will be soon seen essaying the role of a dayan in Star Plus’ latest TV series titled Nazar.
Monalisa is a popular name in the Bhojpuri industry and she is now all set to woo the small screen fans. In an interview with indianexpress.com, Monalisa said, ‘’I have been looking at doing a negative role for a long time now. As an actor, I want to experiment with different shades. As for television, doing a daily was on my bucket list. But never did I imagine that I would get a break in such a grand way.”
Talking about her journey to Bigg Boss and TV, Monalisa said, ‘’Coming from a regional industry, it’s always a dream to find a nationwide recognition. Post Bigg Boss, I did Nach Baliye and recently a web-series (Dupur Thakurpo Season 2). Multiple gates have opened for me. People have also realised that I can perform.''
She further added, ''The stereotype that Bhojpuri actors are on the healthier side and can only do bold roles is finally getting shattered. And with Nazar, I am starting my biggest journey on television. While we all talk about the disparity in the industry between sexes, TV is a medium for women. It’s ruled and watched by them.”
