Cute, talented actress Monaz Mevawallah, who has been missing from action for a while, will soon be back with a bang.
She will be returning to TV with Malinga, the fantasy drama produced by Peninsula Pictures. Also, she is in talks for a comedy show, is what we get to hear.
However, being a thorough professional, Monaz, when contacted, refused to give out more details, saying, “It is better that the concerned channels and production houses make the relevant announcements. All I will say is that doing the fantasy drama is a different experience, getting to play with costumes and languages, depending on the period shown. I am having a blast.”
What about the comedy? “It is too premature to say anything about it right now. Let’s wait a while.”
Monaz, who has been around for years, does not regret not having reached the A list crowd so far. “I did my share of leads (Jabb Love Hua), to start with. But then you need to move on to doing other performance-oriented characters (Astitva – Ek Prem Katha, Jai Jag Janani, Maa Durga, Jhilmil Sitaaron Ka Aangan Hoga) as well. People have taken time to appreciate my talent. I have not yet got my due, but it is on the way. Having said that, just getting to the summit is not enough; you need to stay there as well. Life is all about keeping at it and never ever letting it go.”
Going on, she says, “I have become a much better actor over the years. Meeting so many people has also upped my observational skills. And last, but not the least, I have become sure of what I want. I don’t hesitate to decline offers which don’t make the cut.”
She is also open to web series, “As it speaks to younger audiences, with unlimited creative freedom. But I will not do bold characters if presented shadily. I don’t do stuff just for TRP or hits.”
Last, but not the least, Monaz refuses to comment on her relationships status. “I will not say if there is somebody or not.”
Continue your good work, Monaz!!
