The avatar of Marathi actress Monalisa Bagal in Bhirkit will leave you spellbound!
The effervescent, persevering and talented actress Monalisa Bagal has moved on from her early days as Prem Sankat and she has risen to prominence and become a household name along with Anup Jagdale’s Zhalla Bobhata. Monalisa has teamed up again with accomplished director Anup Jagdale for his upcoming Marathi film Bhirkit in which she portrays a village girl in this family-friendly dark comedy Bhirkit, but she has a romantic angle to her characterization as the female protagonist. Monalisa Bagal has been paired with Tanaji Galgunde of Sairat fame.
Monalisa’s co-stars in this highly anticipated Bhirkit film include veteran actor Girish Kulkarni, Hrishikesh Joshi, Kushal Badrike, Sagar Karande among others.
She plays the role of Reshma and this role forced her to accumulate extra pounds and she did not neglect anything to get into the skin of this character. Monalisa revealed, “I’m from Satara, so I could relate to this village girl character easily, but it was quite difficult to gain weight for this role, but after seeing the results, everyone m appreciated.”
Talking about her love interest in the film, Monalisa even mentioned, “It was an absolute pleasure to work with Tanaji as he was quite shy at first, but we were able to break the ice in the end! He had seen my previous songs many times and once we conversed with each other, there was no hesitation and eventually it blossomed into our unparalleled chemistry which will be seen on screen. “
When we chatted with cute and bubbly Monalisa about her experience working with director Anup Jagdale, she had a glint in her eye that couldn’t be missed. She said: “I was twice lucky enough to work with the extremely talented director Anup Jagdale and his previous film turned out to be the turning point in my life and won me several awards. I am sure that this film will also create history like I’ve never heard of this kind of film ever made and I’m glad to be a part of it.
She was on cloud nine as she shared screen space with great actors like Girish Kulkarni, as she was in awe of his effortless acting skill and passion for his craft. Monalisa has various upcoming projects and she would like to be a part of Hindi movies and web series as well.
