Actors cannot stress enough on several instances on how they die for meaty and challenging characters to portray. That is all the more prevalent for actors on Hindi TV, who struggle with one constant - stereotyping.
However, it is indeed a great opportunity to look at for actor Manjiri Pupala, who played the lead role in Ishqbaaaz's sequel earlier, as she will be seen in Netflix's upcoming web series, Betaal.
Recently in an interview with SpotboyE, Pupula opened up on her role in the show and the experience of shooting it. "Shooting for a horror-thriller like Betaal has been a really great experience. This is my first project with Netflix and I am super excited about the association. I am essaying the role of a tribal woman who is consumed by anger and hatred for the CIPD which eventually leads to an interesting turn of events. It's a very compelling character and without giving away much, all I can say is watch out for Betaal and the monster within us," she said.
The horror thriller series Betaal is produced under the banner of Red Chillies Entertainment. The series revolves around a remote village which becomes the theatre of a breathless battle when a two-century-old Betaal, a British Indian Army officer and his battalion of zombie redcoats are unleashed upon the locals.
We wish the actor all the best for the role and the film.
