This is my debut in digital space. Before this I have just done a popular commercial campaign, this is my first brush in acting in front of the camera. Our director Siddharth Sengupta is a pleasure to work with him. He has almost adopted me! My co actors Arunodoy Singh is extremely helpful and actually helped me out in one scene where I was stuck. He encouraged me saying that I have done theatre for four years so what keeps me stopping.
Varun Badola who is acting in the show and also has written dialogues in the series guided me and taught me the dialect of UP. Nidhi Singh who has done Permanent Roommates – am a big fan of hers and we have become good friends now. With Mahi Gill I have only one scene but she is also extremey coordial.” Speaking on the format of webseries and the bold content Monica says,”For an artist it is the best platform when a writer and the cast has no barrier.
It has become popular medium because of its geniuness and reality factors. I am happy and fortunate to have a part of this. Looking forward to work on this format more in near future.”
