Sobhita Dhulipala will be starring in Dev Patel’s Hollywood directorial debut, Monkey Man. Talking about the project, Dhulipala reveals, “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.”
With the pandemic last year, the Made In Heaven actor shot for Monkey Man in Indonesia for four months. She states it was “incredibly wholesome and introspective”. She adds, “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 terms of the current lineup, Sobhita Dhulipala has some interesting projects in the pipeline. She will be seen in the second season of Made in Heaven. There is also a Tamil magnum opus Major starring Advi Shesh, Kurup with Dulquer Salmaan in the works.
