Remember ‘Bigg Boss 8’ contestant Diandra Soares who is known for her boldness. She created a sensation after locking lips with Gautam Gulati in her stint in Bigg Boss and became a poster girl for being ‘bold’.
Well, now the supermodel is back in the news again. Yes, Diandra Soares is all set to play a lesbian in Kapil Kaustubh Sharma’s web series ‘Love Life & Screw Ups’ and will also be seen having a lip-lock scene with her co-star Mahi Sharma.
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.
Diandra was quoted by Daily Bhaskar as saying, “The experience while working for this web series was very good. The viewers might assume it as a bold character, but there is nothing bold about it.”
Model Mahi Sharma, Diandra’s love interest in the web-series, agrees that the content is little bold, but she is sure that the viewers will accept it. She added that she and Diandra gave their lip locking scene in just one shot and the scene has come out gracefully. Initially, Mahi was little nervous but now, she is excited to see the audience response to it.
Talking about why Kapil cast Diandra in the first place he said, “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 connected again. But this time, I felt that to see her in Mansi’s character will be more interesting. I narrated Mansi’s character to her. She instantly liked it. I must say she is strong headed and courageous. As most of the actresses are shy about playing a lesbian and imagine this Diandra’s debut as an actress.”
Apart from Diandra, the web-series also marks the digital debut of Zeenat Aman. It also stars Diandra’s Bigg Boss rival Sonali Raut, along with Mita Vashisht, Yuvraaj Parashar, Kapil Kaustubh Sharma and Moushumi Chatterjee’s daughter Meghaa.
