Antara Biswas, better known by her stage name Monalisa, is the most prevalent performer in Bhojpuri motion picture industry.
The talented artiste, who came into limelight after her stint in Colors popular reality show Bigg Boss 10, will be seen making audience laugh with her new avatar in &TV’s Comedy Dangal.
Talking about her first stint with the comedy genre, she shared, “I have done comedy films but for the first time I am doing such a show. I have to make audience laugh with live performances. I am very excited and nervous at the same time. Today’s life of any individual is so hectic and stressful that in such situations, to make people laugh is very difficult. My gut feeling says that I will manage to make audience laugh. Comedy shows are audience’s favourite. I as an audience love to watch comedy shows and people from all over the world love comedy. When I informed my husband Vikrant about the show, he felt it was a joke as when I cry, he starts laughing. But he is happy that I have taken up something challenging in my career. I am stepping into something new and I would want audience to support me in my new journey.”
She continued, “I would like to thank the production house Optimystix for giving this platform to audience. I believe a lot of comedians who are now at a high level have come up through this production house. I am blessed that I am also starting my career as a comedian with them.”
When asked who her favourite comedian is, she averred, “I believe being an actor you should know everything. I am a big time fan of Govinda. He is an entertainer.”
On a personal note when we asked Monalisa about going the family way, and she quipped, “We are still kids so we haven’t thought of starting a family. Just like our family was pressurising us for our marriage, they are doing it for a baby too.”
Wish you all luck, Monalisa!!
