Always enjoy working with Soumitra Chatterjee, says Aparna Sen

first_imgKolkata: Actor-director Aparna Sen, who is sharing screen space with thespian Soumitra Chatterjee in Basu Paribaar after a gap of 19 years, has said she always yearns to work with the legend who was paired with her in her debut film Teen Kanya in 1961. The two veterans were last seen together in Sens’s directorial venture Paromitar Ek Din in 2000. “I always look forward to work with Soumitra Chatterjee who is such a great actor someone having such a vast experience,” Sen said recently at the trailer launch of Basu Paribaar here. Recalling her shooting experiences for the film, Sen said: “We used to spend time in adda sessions in between shots at the Mahisadal Rajbari (in East Midnapore) and that was really refreshing.” “Many years have passed since our first film together and we have come a long way,” Sen, who stepped into the filmdom with Satyajit Ray’s Teen Kanya at the age of 16, told reporters here. Basu Paribaar, adapted from James Joyce’s The Dead, has been helmed by director Suman Ghosh. “I loved the way he (Ghosh) adapted James Joyce story for the film. I agreed to do the film immediately after reading the script. I am usually very choosy about my roles,” the Padma Shri awardee said. In Basu Paribaar’ Sen essays the character of Manjari, the wife of retired lawyer Pranabendu (Soumitra Chatterjee). Asked about her collaboration with Ghosh, she said, it was “heartening” to note that some of her suggestions were readily accepted by the director. “He is open to suggestions, something that I appreciate. But as an actor, my job is to follow what the director has visualised for the film. I just did that,” she added.last_img read more
