Rituparna Sengupta, who is making a sort of comeback into Bollywood, is riding high. The national award winning actress for DAHAN is busy attending the Montreal World Film Festival, where her Bengali movie AAROHAN has been invited.
Rituparna plays a rustic character in a AAROHAN, based on a true story that happens in a house in Banaras called 'Mukti Bhawan' where people go to die with a belief that if they die in this house they will attain Moksha (salvation). The Bengali movie is released across India with subtitles in English.
AAROHAN is a movie made by celebrated Bengali film director Pinaki Chaudhry. The veteran Bengali film director is quite happy and impressed with Rituparna's performance. He strongly believes that the movie is for classes not for the masses.
A source close to Rituparna says, "Rituparna is very happy about her movie being called for the festival, she is very pleased and always wanted to be a part of meaningful cinema and lastly all the things are falling into its place."
Rituparna has a couple of more ambitious projects in hand which include Madhur Bhandarkar's much talked about film DIL TO BACHCHA HAI JI opposite Ajay Devgan, BBG with Naseeruddin Shah & Jimmy Shergill, SRK (SHIVAJI RAO KHOTE) opposite Vijay Raaj & Vinay Pathak, and DARDE DISCO with Aryaman & Sneha Ullal. LIFE EXPRESS with Divya Dutta & DUNNO Y... NA JAANE KYUN.
Rituparna is on a roll, with handful of films in queue...!
