Kolkata, Aug 17 (Calcutta Tube/IBNS) Actor Rituparna Sengupta, who is shuttling between Tollywood and Bollywood, seems to be quite excited over her next release ‘Life Express’. The Hindi film, produced by Sky Motion Picture and directed by Anoop Das, is based of the issue surrogate motherhood. Rituparna is playing a working woman named Tanvi.
“Anoop has very aptly pictured the concept of surrogate mother, which has become a necessity for many couples in today’s times,” said Rituparna.
Her co-actors in the film are Divya Dutta, Kiran Jhanjani, Yashpal Sharma, Alok Nath and Nandita Puri.
On being asked as to what persuaded her to do the movie, she said, “…because the story is very much relevant in today’s times. Also, the story has touched my heart and I am sure that it will touch the hearts of the audience too.”
And how was her experience of working with Divya Dutta?
“We all know that Divya is a very talented artist, her acting itself adds grace to the acting of those working with her,” she said.
On being asked about how apt it is, for a woman go for a surrogate mother for the sake of her career, she said, “Everyone has a different way of thinking, how can I say as to who is right or wrong.”
Rituparna will be next seen in Amol Palekar’s English movie ‘And Once Again’.
