Known for her work in several successful films and streaming shows in India such as Ponniyin Selvan and Made in Heaven, actress Sobhita Dhulipala makes her Hollywood debut with the recently released film, Monkey Man, co-starring and directed by Dev Patel.

In an interview with The New York Times, the actress spoke about her character in the film as well as what it was like working with Patel.

Monkey Man stars Dhulipala in the role of Sita, who is a sex worker in the service of powerful but despicable men.

Talking about playing a sex worker, she said, “Those are really beautifully complex humans. To be considered someone who can be trusted with characters like that is really an honour.”

She continued, “If something inspires me or there’s some value I can bring to the story, I want to belong with it.”

When asked if working with Patel on his directorial debut was a risky move as her first Hollywood film, Dhulipala said about their dynamic, “It’s a different kind of relationship altogether. There’s trust, fear, vulnerability, and you move as one pack, one team. There’s a certain purity and passion there — working with a first-time filmmaker. So, I came on board, I jumped on board.”

Also starring Sikander Kher, Makrand Deshpande, Sharlto Copley, Pitobash, Vipin Sharma, Aditi Kalkunte, and Ashwini Kalsekar, Monkey Man released in cinemas worldwide on April 5, 2024.
