After Citylights, Patralekhaa is back once again to work with filmmaker Hansal Mehta in a web series in the role of an elitist Bengali lady. Rajkumar Rao also her co-star from the film will be seen as Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose in Mehta’s venture. Patralekha is no less than thrilled to be a part of the project. Uncannily enough she happened to discuss Subhash Bose with a friend, who wrote a book on him, and now she is featuring in a role in a show based on him and is even more thrilled to play this part given that she is a Bengali.
Besides Hansal Mehta, working with Rajkumar Rao as a co-star is the icing on the cake for she admires his acting skills for getting hold of a scene and making it his own.
Patralekha loves working with National award winner Hansal Mehta since he gives actors a lot of room to perform. Actors are free to use their imagination and take a scene forward which is usually missing while collaborating with other accomplished film-makers.
Patralekha is well aware that the future of entertainment lies in the web domain although she feels a lot of work has to go to make it possible in a concrete way.
As for the audience, all we can say is a start has been made and big names from the industry are joining in. If all goes well, Indian Digital Entertainment might not be such a distant dream after all.
