Monalisa on how she prepped up to portray a sex worker in her series

Mumbai| ‘Bigg Boss 10’ fame Antara Biswas, who is popularly known as Monalisa, recently shared that she will be essaying the role of a sex worker in the anthology ‘Ratri Ke Yatri 2’. The actress also opened up on the challenges that the character entailed.

Talking about the same, she said: “Every role has its own shape, form, and essence. And it becomes even more challenging when you have to step out of your comfort zone to play a certain character. At the same time, it pushes us as an artist to take that extra step where you give your best shot and deliver a performance that justifies the role.”

The anthology series includes five different stories with a common background of the red-light area and its dark reality. Opening up on how she prepared for the role, she said: “I watched many shows and movies where actresses have donned the role of sex workers. I even had a dialect coach train me on my dialogue delivery with a firm yet elegant attitude. Since my character is a strong-headed woman, I could add my own elements to it.”

The first part of the anthology series ‘Ratri Ke Yatri’ was released in 2020.

Shedding light on her story in the series, she added: “My episode ‘Dulhe Raja’ is about a mysterious visitor in the red-light area and my character, with her wit and headstrong personality, teaches him a lesson for life.”
