Former Bigg Boss contestant Diandra Soares is all set to play a lesbian in Kapil Kaustubh Sharma’s web series Love Life & Screw Ups that also features yesteryear Bollywood star Zeenat Aman in her first web series.
Diandra plays a character, who is living a dual life - she is in love with a girl, but also has a steady relationship with a man to whom she was engaged under family pressures.
Theatre actor Dolly Thakore plays Diandra’s mother. Dolly’s character is an LGBT activist, but she has double standards when it comes to her own daughter’s life. Diandra’s love interest in the series is model Mahi Sharma.
Director Kapil said in a press statement, “Initially, I met Diandra for another role, which was a hot and sexy character and a flirt to the hilt. She liked the role, but our dates were not working out. Somehow our shoot got postponed and we again connected. But this time, I felt that to see her in Mansi character will be more interesting. I narrated her Mansi character. She instantly liked it!”
“I must say she is strong-willed and courageous. Most of the actresses, even today shy away from playing a lesbian and imagine this is her debut as an actress.” It’s heard that Diandra has even lip locked with Mahi in the series? “No comments. I can’t reveal the story. All I can say is she has a bold as well as very sensitive, emotional character and she, as true artist, has done her work with most sincerity and conviction”, Kapil added.
The web series also stars Diandra’s Bigg Boss rival Sonali Raut, along with Mita Vashisht, Yuraaj Parashar, Kapil Kaustubh Sharma and Moushumi Chatterjee’s daughter Meghaa.
