Rituparna, the cute social reformer in Calapor!

Friday, August 02, 2013

Bengal star Rituparna Sengupta debuted in Hindi films with Teesra Kaun, directed by Parto Ghosh and later starred in films like Main, Meri Patni Aur Woh, Dahan, Do Knot Disturb among others. She has also acted in three films in Bengali directed by the late Rituparno Ghosh. Now she will be seen in a social issue-based film Calapor. The ADC’s Sandeep Hattangadi spoke to the Bengali lass at the press meet of the film. Some excerpts.

What is Calapor?
Calapor is a jail in Goa but we have recreated the set and most of the film is shot on this set.

What is your role in the film?
I am a social reformer whose task is to reform the jail’s inmates—make them good citizens and bring them back into society. These inmates are prisoners due to circumstances but are good at heart.

What made you accept this film?
I have always wanted to do something different from my glamourised roles and since this role had great acting potential and when the director, Dineshji narrated this film’s story to me, I accepted it right away.

How did you feel while shooting for this film?
We had a great cast in Raghuveer Yadav, Harsh Chhaya and the jail’s inmates who were very new. It was fun working with them.

Reportedly, Dr. Kiran Bedi appreciated your film?
Yes. She saw the film and was impressed by it and congratulated us. She was present at the promotion of the film too.

What next?
I am doing three Bengali films and hoping to get some good film offers in Hindi too.
