Model Monikangana Dutta Debuting with Guzaaish

Assamese model, Monikangana Dutta, who is all set to debut her career in Bollywood with Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Guzaarish, says that she will retain modeling as her career. The model-turned actress says,

“I have not given up modelling. I have been selected as one of the six Victoria’s Secret angels, the world-famous brand synonymous with chic women’s wear.”

The actress, who already made her appearance in fashion magazines like Elle and Vogue, is the first Indian model to be one of the six Victoria’s Secret angels, i.e. main models.

The model is playing a character of Estella Francis in Guzaarish which also stars Hrithik Roshan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. Monikangana also enrolled herself for the dancing school to commemorate the character. She says,

“The character is very much like what I have gone through in my personal life,” Dutta said. “When Sanjay Sir narrated the character to me, I said I have to do this role.”

Dutta, who hails from Guwahati in Assam and started her modelling career in Paris, does not feel ‘overshadowed’ though she is not included in the film’s promos. She said,

“I was in the initial promos that went on air. I do not know if anybody noticed me in them. I do not feel insecure or overshadowed by the movie’s lead stars. In fact, I would always like to be overshadowed by people like Hrithik, Ash and Bhansali, who are my favourites”

Monica has also signed two-film contract with Sanjay Leela Bhansali for near future…
