Filmmaker Rituparno Ghosh's cross-dressing style and fascination for make-up has left him with an eye infection.
"Was suffering from a strange itching, irritation in the left eye for the last few weeks and was trying to ease it with gallons of I-tone. Nothing seemed to work. Saw an optician today. It's an infection due to accumulated eye make-up at both corners(inside) of my eyes. Under medication to help cleanse eyes," Ghosh posted on his Twitter page Wednesday.
The acclaimed Bengali filmmaker, who has movies like "Chokher Bali", "Antarmahal" and "Dosar" to his credit, also has a "moral of the story" to share with his friends and fans.
"Anybody more or less obsessed than me with eye make-up, please take care to cleanse eye corners properly," he added.
