On Making Her Hollywood Debut With Dev Patel, Sobhita Dhulipala I Would Like To Join It

After delivering two consecutive highly praised performances in Made in Heaven Seasons 1 and 2, as well as Ponniyin Selvan I and II, Sobhita Dhulipala’s career has taken off. The burgeoning Bollywood star’s decision to visit Hollywood was inevitable. Monkey Man, Sobhita’s Hollywood debut, was just released worldwide. She spoke candidly about her role in the movie and her collaboration with Dev Patel in a recent interview.

Sobhita Dhulipala on her role as Monkey Man’s call girl
Sobhita portrays Sita in Monkey Man, a call girl who serves as a source of pleasure for the wealthy but vile males. In reference to the experience of pursuing a profession as an underdog character actor, such as in Monkey Man, Sobhita said, “Those are really beautifully complex humans.” It really is an honor to be seen as someone who can be trusted with such qualities. I want to be a part of the tale if it inspires me or if I can add something worthwhile to it.

In her trip retrospective, Sobhita revealed that she had tried out for the part of Sita in Monkey Man before making her screen debut in India in 2016 with Anurag Kashyap’s Raman Raghav 2.0. After a lengthy wait, director Dev did contact her in 2019, saying that ever since her first audition years before, he thought she was perfect for the part.

Sobhita said, “It’s a different kind of relationship altogether,” when asked whether she thought it was a dangerous choice for her Hollywood debut to work with Dev Patel on his directing debut. Trust, fear, and vulnerability are all there, and you move as a cohesive unit. There’s a certain innocence and enthusiasm about working with an inexperienced director.

Thus, I hopped on board and came along.
Concerning Monkey Man
Inspired by the Hanuman tale, the action-packed drama Monkey Man follows a man’s desire for revenge after the death of his mother. It’s directed by Dev Patel, with production value added by Jordan Peele.

India’s premiere of Monkey Man has been postponed, even though it debuted in theaters worldwide on April 5. The movie is awaiting approval from the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC), originally slated for April 19.
