Nobody could have imagined me as Beena in 'Mirzapur': Rasika Dugal

Mumbai, Aug 21 (TIWN) As the web series 'Mirzapur 2' wins the 'Best Series' at the ongoing Indian Film Festival of Melbourne (IFFM) 2021, actress Rasika Dugal recalls how, post the release of the show everyone told her that it was hard to imagine her in the character of Beena Tripathi.

Rasika Dugal bagged two nominations for her work in the film 'Lootcase' and the web series 'Mirzapur 2'.

Talking about her characters in both the projects, Rasika told IANS: "I must say these two women in 'Lootcase' and 'Mirzapur' are so different. In a way, it was an opportunity for me to be versatile as an actress. Since I am a little introverted, shy and clumsy in real life, which is just the opposite of who Beena Tripathi is, in Mirzapur, nobody could have imagined me as Beena in 'Mirzapur'. She walks her way and carries herself with a sense of dignity and there is a sense of sensuality in her personality. It was an interesting character because she is firm and fearless. On the other hand, in 'Lootcase' which was a comedy, Lata is a simple, God-fearing woman, morally upright and always walks the line. So as an actress for me receiving nominations for both the work was very special."

The new season of the web series 'Mirzapur' was released on Amazon Prime Video. The show also features Pankaj Tripathi, Ali Fazal, Divyendu Sharma, Vijay Varma, Shriya Pilgaonkar and Shweta Tripathi Sharma.

Since most of her work, especially cinema be it 'Qissa', 'Tu Hai Mera Sunday', 'Hamid', 'Manto' travelled to film festivals and the actress received a lot of accolades, for that Rasika believes that thanks to the OTT platforms, such films are not niche anymore and actresses like her are gaining great visibility.
