Almost everyone has seen her confident walk on the ramp and those stunning pictures that take everyone's breathe away on Kingfisher calendar. After being selected as one of the six Victoria's Secret angels for their upcoming line, Monikangana Dutta is now all set to make her entry into the Bollywood with Sanjay Leela Bhansali's upcoming film Guzaarish starring Hrithik Roshan and Aishwarya Bachchan. Monikangana speaks about her past, present and reveals how future is something that she never plans for.
Monikangana, what does it mean?
(Laughs) Everyone's so curious to know that, my name Mon means "moti" pearl in Assamese and Kangana is kangan so it means a pearl bracelet.

Interesting, so a lot is happening for you, considering
a Bollywood debut and you also have been selected as one of the six
Victoria secret angels. How does it feel with so much buzz about
you going around?
I have been in this buzz two years back, it's like a de ja vu, it's like wow it's happening again but trust me I have worked my a$ off to be here and I have a long way to go. I am still not satisfied but for the moment my plate is full.
For the role that you play in Guzaarish, Sanjay
Leela Bhansali did ask you to act out something on your whim; kind
of an audition wasn't it?
There was no audition; I don't know why everyone is asking me this. There was no camera with people and audition. It was just that he said, 'I want to see you act, So you do whatever you want to do, you can do drama, you can do romantic, you can do anything.' I did a dramatic scene because I can really relate to drama because I am a really dramatic person. He liked it and that's how I was in Guzaarish.

When Guzaarish happened, were you pretty sure that acting is what you want to do?
My whole career from the age of 17 was unplanned, it's not like I was ready for something. You can't be ready for anything in life. Nothing is constant that we can be ready and tomorrow it will happen. Just go with the flow with the best opportunities in life.
