After playing a gangster in Rajinikanth's Kabali, Dhansika has once again picked an unconventional role. This time, she will be seen playing a sex worker on screen. Her upcoming short film Sinam, directed by Anand Murthy, is set against the backdrop of Kolkata and also stars Bidita Bag who will be playing a documentary filmmaker.
Although men smoking on screen is fairly common in Indian films, not too many female characters are shown with a cigarette in hand. Since Dhansika's character in the film is supposed to be a smoker, Sinam will see the actor breaking the stereotype.
Director Anand heaped praise on her commitment and said, â€śAt a time when most male stars have stopped smoking on screens, Dhanshika didnâ€™t have any qualms about smoking, because her character demanded it. In fact, she jumped at the opportunity when she heard the script and accepted her role sans any reservations.â€ť
Dhansika has reportedly prepared for weeks to get under the skin of the character. â€śIt will easily be her boldest role yet. The attitude with which she embraced this role explains her passion for cinema. Her commitment amazed me,â€ť Anand said.
