Delighted to see filmmakers reviving Bengali culture: Rituparna
New Delhi: Bengali actress Rituparna Sengupta says cinema is evolving with filmmakers focusing more on content and revisiting various culture. She applauds Vidya Balan-starrer ‘Kahaani’ for giving a boost to the new trend and Bengali flavour.
"I think cinema is going through a lot of revolution right now with content becoming the king at the box office, rather than stars. Content-oriented films are receiving good business and people want to see those kind of films. From foreign locations, the film has shifted its focus to Indian culture and `Kahaani` is one of the example where we saw filmmaker looking at West Bengal for inspiration," the 40-year-old said.
The National Award winning actress is known for her powerful roles in Bengali movies like ‘Dahan’ and ‘Charulata’ as well as her Hindi movie ‘Main, Meri Patni Aur Woh’.
Rituparna did quite a few Hindi movies like ‘Sirf’, ‘Bumm Bumm Bole’ and ‘Dil Toh Baccha Hai Ji’, but lately she hasn`t been seen in any Hindi film.
"The reason why I am not seen much in Bollywood is because I did not get the desired script and I cannot accept any project for the sake of money," she said adding that "I am still waiting for the right opportunity to come my way. I am working on few projects and I am on the verge of finalising few scripts this year".
She is keen to work with Priyadarshan and new crop of directors who are instrumental in bringing change in Bollywood.
"Apart from Priyadarshan, who is one of my favourite, I would definitely love to work with new breed of directors like Sagar Ballary, Tigmanshu Dhulia and Sujoy Ghosh in near future," she said.
The actress, who is married to Sanjay Chakrabarty, gave birth to a baby girl eight months ago. What about balancing personal and professional life?
"My motherhood has never affected my professional life. One needs to learn how to balance personal and professional lives and then only they will be able to get the best of both the worlds. Women are famous for putting everything in the right direction and I am also doing the same," she said.
