Rasika Dugal: Films Almost Forget Women In The Web Series

DungCNT |Dec 08, 2018

Rasika Dugal feels that web space is path breaking when it comes to female characters.

For Rasika Dugal, web space becomes a pioneer when women's representation appears. The web world is not something new to Rasika. She has been known to play a cameo role for Permanent Roommates series, a popular Indian web created by TVF and also play the lead role in the TV mini-series Humorously Yours. Currently, the audience also sees her in Mirzapur, a crime thriller web series on Amazon Prime Video.

For her, in a modern and digital society, the writers and producers need time to build a character. If one is a supporting character, they just appear in 2 or 3 scenes in a two or three-hour film. "There is room and time for multiple tracks to flesh out in the web space. I enjoy this format. Usually, women often get ignored from main narrative, especially in films. In ‘Mirzapur,’ the tracks of all the women are interesting", said she.

Women should appear more on screen

The actor believed that it would be better if the screen time for female characters in Mirzapur increased. She hoped that in season 2, female characters would have more screen time.

In a recent web-series Mirzapur, she will be in the role of Beena Tripathi, a wife of the gangster played by Pankaj Tripathi in the role of Kaleen Bhaiya. Talking about this character in the web series, the actor shared that her part in this series was refreshment in her acting career. She was usually in charge of an affectionate mother or a perfect wife. Anyway, she took the role of a frustrated wife breaking the stereotype of surrounding women. “Beena is instinctively mysterious person. There are absolutely no roles written for women in which there is acknowledgement of their sexuality,” she added.

In an interview with IANS, Ali Fazal revealed that season 2 of Mirzapur is still in progress. It is expected to come back early next year. They hope that they can bring the world of Mirzapur back to the audience.
