Besides Bhojpuri films, Monalisa is known for her recent stint in the reality show Bigg Boss season 10.

Controversial reality show Bigg Boss can make or break your image depending upon your stint inside the house. But for actor Monalisa, the show has definitely given boost to her career. She is doing a Bengali film, working in a reality show and also has few TV and film offers lined up. The actor says that after Bigg Boss, her fan base has increased, not just in India but in other countries as well.

“The show had a very positive effect on my life and career. I got married on the show post which, I’ve been getting offers from film and TV industry,” informs Monalisa. The actor is in Kolkata shooting for a song titled Delhi se aayi chori innocent for her Bengali film titled Comrade, being helmed by filmmaker Shankudev.

“Being a Bengali, I have always wanted to do Bengali films. But I hardly got any good offers. Shankudev wanted me in this film but he couldn’t get in touch with me, as I was inside the Bigg Boss house. So, now I am only doing a song. But he is keen on working with me in his next film, though we are yet to finalise the details,” adds the actor.

Meanwhile, Monalisa is excited to participate in the celebrity dance reality show Nach Baliye along with Vikrant Singh Rajput. The couple has already started brushing up its dancing skills and are looking forward to audience’s reaction.

Talking about doing more work on television, Monalisa shares that she has been getting good daily soap offers too but she can’t take up anything for the next few months because of her prior commitments. About the kind of roles she is interested to explore, the actor says, “I’d love to do romantic shows. But I won’t mind doing negative characters as there are both difficult and interesting to play on-screen.”
