NEW DELHI: Actress Divya Dutta, who is "grateful to people for hating" her for playing a negative character in her latest film "Chalk N Duster", will soon take up the role of a prostitute. She says it will be interesting as she has never essayed a similar character before.

Divya will soon start shooting the film version of the 2004 Oscar-winning documentary "Born Into Brothels", about the children of prostitutes in Kolkata's red light area Sonagachi.

"I am playing the protagonist in the Arup Dutta directorial. We should start in March. The shooting will take place in real locations and in Kolkata. Sapna Pabbi and Seema Biswas will be my co-stars. I am playing a prostitute and it's my first time.

"It will be difficult and true to life. So, it's interesting. It's another new aspect to discover," Divya told IANS.

She is currently shooting "Irada", which also stars Naseeruddin Shah and Arshad Warsi.

"I am just finishing my other film with Naseeruddin and Arshad. Once I am done with that, I will start working on this one," she said.
