Three award-winning actresses team up in film about bonding
Three national award-winning actresses of Bengali films -- Rupa Ganguly, Rituparna Sengupta and Indrani Halder -- have joined hands for a women-centric film.
'Aro Ekdin' deals with the lives and careers of three friends who rediscovered their personal bonding.
"Rupadi, Indrani and I was never cast in the same film. We three had never shared screen space," Rituparna told PTI She said that in "Aro Ekdin", a film about the quest of love and understanding, they looked at life's feel-good factor from their perspective.
"In 'Piyalir Password', Rupadi was my elder sister. In 'Dahan', I had worked with Indrani. There is no competition but a positivity on the sets now," she said.
Rituparna is also working in Srijit Mukherjee's Partition-based film "Rajkahini".
The actress, whose character Jhumur is the youngest of the lot in the film, found it challenging to imbibe the traits and mannerisms of her character - in a word living with the character she was not in real life.
"Rupadi essays my senior in college in this film and Indrani is my elder sister Malobika," she said.
Admitting it was a challenging task to assemble three national awardees in a single film, debutant director John Halder said it was a treat to watch them improvise during the takes.
Actress Sayani Ghosh is the youngest face in the all-women group.
