Sushmita Sen makes her dad proud, once again

Friday, May 01, 2015

Bollywood actress and former Miss Universe Sushmita Sen has once again made her father proud and this time by acting in a Bengali film. “It was my father’s big dream that I do a Bengali film. It is a big moment for him,” Sen, whose debut Bengali film ‘Nirbaak’ (Speechless) releases this Friday, said.

The 39-year-old actress, who has starred in Hindi films like ‘No Problem’, ‘Main Hoon Na’ and ‘Biwi No 1’, said her father Shuber Sen always wanted her to act in Bengali films, something which never worked out for her. “He was very ecstatic when he heard that. He had watched Srijit’s films before and said he is a fantastic director and you must do his film,” she said.

Although born to Bengali parents in Hyderabad, the actress was worried about her command over the language while dubbing for the film directed by Srijit Mukherji. “I was scared whether I would be able to express myself in Bengali. The director made me do the dubbing like I was a child doing poetry recitation. He said every word has to be said exactly like a true Bengali,” she said.

Two-three years ago, she was in talks with the late maverick Bengali film director Rituparno Ghosh for a Bengali movie. “We were discussing a film but he left us before that happened. That was a film I would have done for sure. I will regret that. As a human being and as a director, both, he was honest, my kind of a person,” the actress said. She is now discussing a project with another Bengali filmmaker Anjan Dutt.
