Actress Divya Dutta, who is "grateful to people for hating" her for playing a negative character in her latest film Chalk N Duster, will soon take up the role of a prostitute. She said that it will be interesting as she has never palyed a similar character before.
Divya will soon start shooting the film version of 2004 Oscar-winning documentary Born into Brothels, about the children of prostitutes residing in Kolkata's red light area Sonagachi.
"I am playing the protagonist in the Arup Dutta-directed movie. We should start in March. The shooting will take place in real locations and in Kolkata. Sapna Pabbi and Seema Biswas will be my co-stars. I am playing a prostitute and it's my first time," she said.
"It will be difficult and true to life. So, it's interesting. It's another new aspect to discover," Divya told IANS. (Also Read: Divya Dutta on Censorship: Director Has Every Right to Express)
