The Dhobi Ghat actor will be playing a gay character in a short film!
Monica Dogra who impressed critics and cinegoers with her charm and effortless acting in Kiran Rao’s Aamir Khan starrer Dhobi Ghat will now be seen in a short film in which she will be playing the role of a lesbian. A secret birdie chirps to us that androgynous model Casey Legler who became successful as a male model, despite being born as a female, will also be seen in the production. The 12-minute film titled Relapse, will be screened at the upcoming Los Angeles Film Festival in June.
Directed by Rosie Haiber and produced by Film Independent Relapse is a 12 minute long movie will be premiered at the upcoming film festival. The plot of this hatke venture revolves two women whose marriage crumbles when Casey’s character decides to undergo a sex change operation to become a man. “I am acting with Casey who is a real badass. Being a former Olympian swimmer, she would constantly push the boundary in every scene and that helped as a performer,” said Dogra about her paring with Caseey.
Talking about the steamy scene in the movie Monica elaborated, “I had to kiss Casey, and it happened very naturally. However, unlike Blue is the Warmest Colour, our film isn’t high on sexual content. But as far as the emotional turmoil and psychology goes, it is definitely at par with the internationally acclaimed French drama.”
We at BollywoodLife are excited to see how this radically different concept will be portrayed on celluloid and are certainly looking forward to the release of the same!
