Bhojpuri film actress Monalisa, who is currently playing a daayan in the show Nazar, says she was eagerly waiting to play a negative role on small screen. Monalisa raised the mercury with her antics with Manu Punjabi in Bigg Boss 10 house. She won much attention and praise for being herself in the popular reality show. The Bhojpuri star now turns a daayan or witch for her show.
Asked what urged her to play the role on the Star Plus's show, Monalisa told IANS over an e-mail interview from Mumbai: "The show has a unique concept which talks about supernatural beings and how their energies affect us in our daily lives. Having never explored this genre, as an actor I would love to be part of such a project."
The former Bigg Boss 10 contestant, whose given name is Antara Biswas, says she has never played a supernatural character before. "Also my character on the show is that of a 'Daayan' and is again something I have not played before. I was eagerly waiting to play a negative character on television and 'Nazar' gave me that platform," she added.
