Sobhita Dhulipala can't keep calm as she features in Dev Patel's Hollywood film, Monkey Man
Sobhita Dhulipala will be starring in Dev Patel's Hollywood directorial debut, Monkey Man.
Sobhita revealed while talking about this project, "I had auditioned for it almost five years ago and I got a call back in a few days for a screen test with Dev. I remember it was on the day I was leaving for the Cannes Film festival with my first film Raman Raghav 2.0 (2016). All these years later and many turns in the journey of the film and our individual lives later looks like we belonged with each other all along."
"What appealed to me about the project is that it's a collaborative spirit, a young and rather eccentric approach to the story and most certainly the people involved. I knew it would be special from the get-go. I really enjoyed my character's tender dilemmas, they were as glamorous as sorrowful."
Amidst the pandemic last year, the Made in Heaven star spent four months filming Monkey Man in Indonesia. She stated, it was "incredibly wholesome and introspective". She added further, "This is the closest I have been to my own self, my family and my pursuits. I shot for Monkey Man during a global health crisis, which has its share of inconveniences but that aside, I didn't find my journey during the film particularly challenging or difficult. I enjoyed every second of the ride."
In the wake of several other Indian actors making headlines around the world, asked her if she is concerned about expectations. Sobhita replied, "It is the greatest era for potent crossovers in all fields, I am very inspired by the many hard workers who stand tall globally. I am too much of a wayfarer to feel bogged down by expectations on any front. It's a short, short life, you know? Gratitude and passion will light my path."
Sobhita will be starring in the upcoming films, including Major, starring Advi Shesh, Kurup, a Tamil magnum opus starring Dulquer Salmaan, and Made In Heaven S2.
