MUMBAI: Sakshi Pradhan, who won season 2 of the reality show MTV Splitsvilla and was also seen hosting the Travel Show Kissed By The Sea, has bagged a new project. She has been roped in to play a key role in Zee5 Original series, Poison.

Speaking about her role, Sakshi told the media, “I am playing Rani, who hails from a small suburb of Mumbai, Nalasopara and she leads a gang of four men. Her journey from Mumbai to Goa brings about a whole lot of transformation and I play this woman gangster in the film. The character is very brutal and she mercilessly kills people and does not think twice even when she has to kill her lover.”
The actress, who is also part of the horror-comedy Booo Sabki Phategi, further added, “I had to heavy-duty action scenes and stunts in the film and it was a great experience. I feel this is the role of a lifetime because I have never gotten an opportunity to do so many things in one role. Rani transforms from wearing salwar suits to a typical Goa girl while playing the gangster.”
