Girl from Sonagachi in Bollywood:
There are rare times when Bollywood does something good for everyone. A little gesture of kindness, a little bit of sunshine, makes the world a better place to live in. for all those who aren’t aware of what Sonagachi is, it is the red light area of Kolkata, where thousands of sex workers dwell with their families, and they see nothing but the lights of the brothels where they lived. Its difficult to escape from there, because there is hardly any other professional options for those workers, who aren’t even guaranteed social and medical status. In times like this, Bollywood casting couch was kind enough to let one sex worker work with them.
Key Sheikh- the girl who made it from rags to Bollywood:
2 years ago, Keya bagged a ticket to Hollywood, for the movie Love Sonia, directed by David Womark, whoch had Freida and Moore in the cast too. Keya still doesn’t have a passport, but she is trying her best to get that final preparation before she moves to Hollywood. She is now in Tabrej Noorani’s film, that has Frieda in the cast too.
She had taken her first flight to Mumbai, and that is what completely thrilled her. It was a dream come true moment for her when she went to Mumbai, she lived a five star hotel, and food was served to her, as simple as this pleasure sounds, it was a wonderful experience for her.
Everyone was respectful:
Keya recalls that no one judged her on her profession, she was paid 300 a day, and she was made to act whatever happens at Sonagachi, that being relatively easier for her to act. Raj Kummar Rao was the client, and Richa Chadha was the Malkin in the scene, she recalls. Although she was happy, she missed her son. She is still doing her sex work, but then she plans to take off to Hollywood soon
